This is the key to Socrates' wisdom having the patience, discipline, and courage to continue asking questions, even if the area of topic seems too in depth or hard to question. Wisdom such as this did not, and does not carry enough value to compensate for all the troubles it produces. Having wisdom by Socrates' opinion was more of a negative than a positive. Constantly showing people up, disproving their beliefs, underestimating their knowledge, and frustrating people to the point where you are on trial and sentenced to death is not the manner in which I would utilize my intelligence. It is great to be knowledgeable and wise but there is no need to carry such a subtle arrogance all the time, arrogance will only aggravate and anger the people you are trying to inform.
