  • Please don't ask a question "what is one word for XYZ?". There could be tens of words unless you specify your context with an example sentence. Your question received one close-vote as primarily opinion-based and your question doesn't work here. – user140086 Jun 4 '16 at 17:19

"Wise" itself is a great word for this, but it's not as specific as what you're looking for. Perhaps a synonym like "prudent" would do the trick, though.

"Receptive" is a word for someone who is "willing to listen to or accept ideas, suggestions, etc." (Merriam Webster)

Example usage: She is receptive to criticism. He is a receptive listener who benefits from instruction.
