One definition of a fool in Proverbs is someone who refuses to seek wisdom (Prov. 1:22). Their lack of wisdom isn't the reason they are considered a fool, but their lack of seeking. Proverbs repeatedly urges young men to acquire wisdom, and seek for it like buried treasure (Prov. 2:1-7). Wisdom is not something they have yet, for they are supposed to go out and find it. So simply to say someone lacks wisdom is not to say they are a fool.
