age and maturity are two different things, Maturity doesnt come with age but with acceptance of responsibility.

Age is just a number and does not determine the level of maturity of a person.

There are young people who act very mature and people of age who act very childish.

Without age no maturity!albeit,i agree;age is different to maturity.Age is nothing but numbers while maturity deal with your way of interaction.

Obviously they are 2 different things

Age is about the years ,hours,minutes and seconds u spend on earth but maturity is about experience and responsibilities. A person might be 16 yrs old and still act like a 12 yr old child ( am nt talkin bout autism)[font=Lucida Sans Unicode][/font][color=#770077][/color]

Age is the numbers nicely packaged alone and maturity is the age nicely packaged with knowledge and experience

Age is a number

Maturity is the mental development factor of an individual, still intertwined with age but not the same.

, e.g i'm sure i'm not as matured as my age(hang out with too many 18 and 19)

Age & Maturity are not the same in anyway

I like to see it as:

Age is the number of years you have spent on earth

while

Maturity has more to do with the kind of experiences you've had, and what you have done about them and less to do with the number of years you have spent.

At a certain age, One is considered to be matured but if that person is not the dependent factor is inclusive of the portrayed enivoroment that person grew up in and the elements of socialization.

age is to experience as maturity is to wisdom.

in other worlds, the older you get, the more exprienced you are in the things of live, while the wisdom in you shows how matured you are. a twenty year person can be more matured than a thirty year old person.

MUCH THANKS TO EVERY BODY, But i have a different opinion. Yea, age is age maturity is maturity.

Why do you think one has to reach certain age before he is allowed to do certain things.

Do you think a teenager with all his maturity can become say the Governor of your state?

Actually some people get mature faster than others while some simply dont get mature all their life but AGE actually brings maturity.

For a normal person, the older you are the more mature you become.

THATS MY OWN VIEW

The answer to this thread is No. E.g.: I have a cousin whom is age 4 and the way he talks is like an old man like if he sees anyone in the house, he would ask the person: Can I get you anything to drink Sir/Madam? And he always helps his mother do the housework. A very cute and mature boy. Too mature for his age in fact.

I know you will say that the majority goes, that age and maturity are not the same.

Somehow I always believe that age and maturity are the same.

Maturity comes natural with age. It is not earned. If you observe little children and even teens. Are you flabbergasted with their wisdom and firm actions?  How much more would you expect of people who are more advanced with age in numbers.

The main tenet is that they all have their five senses operating and are still able to get around in this world in spite of inhibitions in life.

People who lack at least any of the five senses, are still able to get around in this world, few don't.

The general pattern or norm is that age and maturity are the same, but there are a few exceptions.

When you study law, there are general laws but there are few exceptions.

When you study science, there are theories or general assumptions but there are few exceptions.

If you observe people today, they are working, married, have children, own or rent rooms, have cars whether old or new and the list can go on and on and on. People socialize and have friends. Just very few are not able to do so or have these things. It's even amazing.

No, I think age is different to maturity. Age is only a figure while maturity is how you can cope with what each day brings.

Age and Maturity, are two different things and do not have anything in common. Age is simply a length of time that one has existed, that is the duration of life. e. g 23,24……, etc. while Maturity, deals with development that is to say that, maturity is the period of time in your life after your physical growth has stopped and you are fully developed. So you can see that being 50 does not automatically classify one as being matured, until that sense of reasoning is there.

There is a world of differences between them, Exposure,experience,roles,learning etc affect maturity but age is natural.

In order words, age is static,unalterable,beyond control but maturity may not.

you r getting me wrong,now im  not saying that peeps don't mature wt age,im saying that they r some exceptional cases whereby even @old age they r still some dumb people,afterall thats y d saying of a fool @40 is a fool forever still exists

even though the poster did not mention d exact stuff he meant by maturity ,we all know that hes talking about maturity in mind and way of thinking,some girls that get married @19/20 are far more matured dan them 35/36 yr old married women,all im saying is that the thinking faculty of a person determines how mature that person is

havent u seen peeps that even as they mature they still look smallish wt dry chests and no Bottom?(that is part of physical maturity,i guess)i still remember our househelp even @38 she was still as small and flat chested just like my little niece,no sickness watsoever but that is her body system

if u see sometimes an 18 yr old girl will get  married and keep her home well,but even if a 40 yr old gets married she might not even be able to keep her home,now that is where maturity not having anything to do wt age falls in

yeah i know that as one grow old ,he/she ,might be falling into d path of maturity but at d same time evn those that have grown old aint has wise ,intelligent as d young ones

it all depends on d reasoning and running of  mind of an individual that is what brings out d maturity in them

really not all, there is a saying that the greatest man on earth is one who builds his foundation by the stone thrown at him, maturity and age are two different things entirelly.it just  age is one of the factor of maturity, my one point about maturity is how you can build your foundation since everybody have the freewill of nature(doing anything you like),how you can takle life issues and the lots, am zion  student of joseph ayobabalola university, 08064243690
