There are 9 gifts Holy Spirit not 7. The "word of wisdom" is the imparting of practical information that you need to live, i.e. wisdom.

The gift of wisdom is the wisdom of God.

This gift should not be confused with the gift of: the Word of Knowledge, which is a separate a distinct gift of the Holy Spirit.

To be a specific, The Word of Knowledge gift gives piece of information that God reveals to somebody that they could not have naturally known immediately for some purpose that the believer needs the information for.
