Question Is maturity directly propotional to age? - May 28th, 2007

am back with a new topic ... but this time it isn't that dark and morbid i hope so..
Do u think that maturity comes with age... like we generally expect teenagers to act ..hmm... like teenagers and a little "older" people soberly? Why do we assign the moods to age groups? Why do we look with surprise if a person of 60 is cheerful and fun loving with a wide eye and a teenager talking abt the philosophy of life like this =>??

How do u measure maturity? Is this measurable?

Wht are the reasons of maturity... is this life experience? OR listening to ur parents or grandmothers/fathers? Or through books? Or something else??

Suppose if there is high degree maturity in a teen.. then how should she/he balance it with spice... or keep the same mood? Parents want their teen children to grow up and act like adults.. is this ok?? Take the other example, i have personally seen extremely indecisive and immature people in their 40's.. and i think wht they have learnt from life? (Im not talking abt fun-loving, im talking abt inability to take proper decisions in 40's) ... Is it a sin to be fun-loving at an older age... why?????

Finally.. is this a myth that maturity comes with age... or there are exceptions?

The debate is in ur hands!!!! Ur comments.

roshni very topic to discuss...i feel maturity has nothing to do with age...it is merely based on life experiences,,a person's lifestyle..the more a person gets hurt in his childhood the more early he matures...take example of a poor kid who from his childhood knows to earn his livelihood whereas a person who has grown in wealthy (rich)environment where he has got everything has no value for money...from this ex.i m trying to bring out the difference that how a person becomes matures...the environmental forces are responsible for a person's maturity..

hmmm nop.. not really...

dont believe?.. just lock up a human being - a child of age 3... for about 15 years.. with no connection to the outside world.. and see how mature that guy is...

next go examine a beggar who is all of 13 years old.. see how mature he is!...

u will know the difference ..

MATURITY IS DIRECTLY RELATED TO EXPERIENCES!

that's bcoz this is a general understanding that maturity comes with age.

nope! we cant have a kg or a litre of maturity.

Its all the things u've described.

What's balancing the spice? Being a mature person doesn't mean being a nerd.

Yep! maturity comes when u face the real world... Even at this age of 20-22 we've yet to see a plethora of world.

Fun loving doesn't mean immature... Don't confuse seriousness with maturity. People at 40's will have their own problem, difference from people at 20's and yet again, it will be different from people in their 50's and 60's.

Again, there is a difference of mentality which arises here. Something which might be very mature from their angle might seem to be immature from urs and vice versa.

Bottom line... Maturity comes with age and experience. When u gain experience through age, u get more matured.

Re: Is maturity directly propotional to age? - May 28th, 2007

Im my opinion, ages has nothing to do with the maturity. a person can become mature at very early age. maturiy depends upon is environmental factor and persons experience of life as rightly pointed out by born2rule. if u see the young kinds now a days do all those stuff what people used to do in their 20s-30s. u knw the reason y? its because of the influence of the environment. they see people doing it and therefore they try to do it and experience with the result what they get. if a guy with the influence of the mivies fall in love @ age if say 12-14 and get hurt by that thing then definately he will think twice nextime falling in love in his later age. this is where the environment and the experience comes in to picture.

I'd agree with hemant here. Its experiences and not the age that make a person mature. Ofcourse the older you get the more experiences and the more mature.

But in todays world, there are people who have done more at a young age than a 70 yr old.

So its partly true that age counts... but experiences make a person mature.
