I know you're sarcastic, either about the first and the last line of what you said, or the middle. Yes, either of the two statements of mine are true.

January 9th, 2009, 4:46 AM
I like to think I'm very mature, I've actually received many comments about how mature I am.

You're shoelace is untied by the way.

January 9th, 2009, 4:59 AM
I like to think I'm mature to be honest with you. But I do like being immature...I won't lie XD It's fun to just act childish and whatever now and again ^_^

January 9th, 2009, 5:13 AM
Really kinda personal and stuff but meh. Might as well give it a shot.

Yeah, I'm mature. Don't really feel like explaining it though atm...

January 9th, 2009, 5:43 AM
I've always been considered very mature by adults over the years.

I'm 20 years old but of course I'm not mature. I never have been because I think being mature all the time keeps you from being with your friends, doing things you really love and from being yourself.

Everyone needs to have fun once in a while and without some sort of fun, we would just be lifeless zombies. D:

So to answer your question, I am not mature at all. XD

January 9th, 2009, 5:54 AM
well many people like friends and family have said i was mature so i belive that i am somewhat of a mature person...

January 9th, 2009, 5:59 AM
I'm 21 but I don't think I'm mature as I should be. I'm not trying to have too many responsibilities just yet.

January 9th, 2009, 7:07 AM
Psh all teens are Mature lol. NOT

I'm mature enough for my age, I hope.

January 9th, 2009, 12:02 PM
I think I'm mature when I need to be...At other times I can be really childish. Let's put it this way: I know when I need to act like an adult and likewise, I know when it's ok to have fun. I think understanding that shows maturity anyway ^___^

January 9th, 2009, 12:23 PM
I would say I am, often too much so at times. But I don't care, really. It's the way I am.

January 9th, 2009, 12:36 PM
I'd say I'm fairly mature for my age, but I wouldn't be too upset if i wasn't. I mean, after all; I'm only fifteen. We can't expect every teenager to act like an adult, can we?

On a side note, I think maturity is valuable, and those who have it should not take it for granted. They should however be understanding of those who are less mature than they are.

January 9th, 2009, 1:04 PM
I can be mature if I want to. Most of the time I don't want to though. I mean if I was mature all the time, I wouldn't be me, right?

January 9th, 2009, 1:31 PM
I'm not mature. At least everyone thinks I'm not mature. Sure, many people say I'm a 'nerd', but since when did maturity relate to knowledge? I tend to do random actions, sulk when things don't go my way and nag my parents for things I want. So I'm not mature at all. A common trait among many boys of my age. And generally, girls are more mature than boys.

January 9th, 2009, 1:58 PM
Most people who know say I act like a 12 year old sometimes.

So no, I'm not mature.

January 9th, 2009, 2:13 PM
For my age, I'd say I'm pretty mature. In general though, hell no lol.

January 9th, 2009, 2:47 PM
I'm mature most of the time unless I'm around my little sister... she bugs me so much to the point where I'm probably the most immature here. Other than that, I'm probably the most mature in my class, because I'm laid back and I don't do stupid things.

January 9th, 2009, 3:06 PM
I would say I'm pretty mature, compare to other teens at public these days. >.<
So yes, I'm mature.

January 9th, 2009, 3:09 PM
yeah my techer told me im so maturer so i am

January 9th, 2009, 3:13 PM
Somewhat. It's more of a yes, though. It all really depends on the person. Allow me to explain.

My emotions are dependent on how other people treat me, and how other people are overall. Strange how it works, but meh? I tend to be quite mature, or at least try to. I only act mature when I feel like being immature or something. So yeah, in otherwords, somewhat. I can be or can't be depending on either the person or the situation.

January 9th, 2009, 3:47 PM
Ye-hell no.
If you look at me, you may think i am, but there is a soul deep witthin that pulses within, and when it is released, chaos. *Smirks*

January 9th, 2009, 3:49 PM
I'm told I'm mature for my age.. most Scorpio's are according to the information about them, but I can take a joke and act immature a lot as well if I really feel like it. It all depends on how I'm feeling then and if I can be bothered acting mature... sometimes I like to state the obvious though.

January 9th, 2009, 3:49 PM
I would say I'm pretty mature, compare to other teens at public these days. >.<
So yes, I'm mature.I am going with you ;p,I guess I am pretty much mature than average teens. So yes.

January 9th, 2009, 3:53 PM

Hmmm i am scorpio and i am told that i too am mature for my age, i used to be bad sometimes at taking jokes, but i am using this years new years resolution to be happier and more relaxed.

January 9th, 2009, 4:11 PM
I like to think I'm mature. I do sometimes fear that I'm more grown-up than the friends that are now in different situations - for example I'm working full-time and they're all at university getting drunk and spending all their student loans (I mean, I'm sure they do work, but I never hear about that...). I think maturity ties in with responsibility and things that come with progressing into adult life.

But then, I guess everyone's idea of maturity is a bit different. I have a 16-year-old friend online, and she always says how her older friends tell her she's really mature for her age and stuff. Unfortunately I can only ever see her obsessing about things (TV shows, pairings, etc) and overreacting to completely stupid things. Not what I count as maturity really.

I don't think liking Pokémon means you're immature, to be honest. You can be mature and still have hobbies, right? We're all allowed our fun. Maturity =/= seriousness.

I am mature for a 14 year old, but only when I want to be. Some times I can be so immature but on forums, like this one, or other public areas, I am very proffessional and mature about things.

January 9th, 2009, 5:29 PM
I get that I'm pretty mature for my age (IRL 14) when I'm online.

Offline when I'm living... maturity was never an option. XD

January 9th, 2009, 5:31 PM
I'm quite mature for my age (As I am told), but that's just for my age.
In general I am immature, but I can be mature when I have to.
I guess I'm more on the immature side.

January 9th, 2009, 6:04 PM
I can act (and talk, in terms of vocabulary and word usage) more maturely at times, and people, my friends in particular, have commented on this trait, though I still do like to joke around with my friends and classmates and such.

January 9th, 2009, 9:35 PM
Uh... If anyone doesn't mind, I could reply to you one by one (mostly negatively)... Or would you hate that?

as of lately ive been "mature" but im still an immature butthead XD i still make cracks at fart jokes and the what not

January 9th, 2009, 9:45 PM
I used to be really childish on forums because I thought it was "cute" and "cool" and more people would like members who acted that way. You know, using smilies after almost every sentence, and posting random words that are usually said in anime, and written in manga.

Though I did maintain a surprisingly high maturity level for my age during that time at school, if nowhere else. I am proud to say I am even more mature at this moment after being a few years older than before.

All in all, I have been pointed out as being mature for my age by my teachers, mainly because I acted like the shy kid in class instead of the class clown. I could strangely have a normal conversation with any of my teachers as well, even as a freshman.

I guess maturity can mean that you will not start giggling when you hear words that used to be funny in grade school in your anatomy class, and you know when to goof off with your friends, but you know how to act perfectly calm in a classroom. There is really more to it than that, but my brain is not working properly right now on account of the lack of sleep.

January 9th, 2009, 9:48 PM
Im less mature then most children in elementary probably especially my neighbors that are in elementary there too up tight there probably 10 and im 19.

January 9th, 2009, 9:51 PM
I'm only mature when I need to be.

When it's not that time, I could be a complete idiot.

January 9th, 2009, 9:55 PM
yes, sometimes I'm called stuck up by some^^

January 9th, 2009, 9:55 PM

ya I'm a scorpio and people tell me I'm really mature. (One of my friends thinks mature means being uptight so he considers me a bit uptight) but while most people may think I'm very mature, they havent seen my wild side. (Yes I have one) I can go really hyper and crazy. (If I'm in the right mood)

Compared to others of my age, I'm rather mature. I simply know how to behave in public. The only time I'm immature at all is with my friends, in which even that depends on the situation and who I'm with. For example, a prime example of my immature side: urinating all over a car on the side of a street to send a message: stop parking in the street. Honestly: they have a clear driveway, a roomy garage, and they make it difficult for the newspaper delivery staff and the mailman to get things inside of their mailbox.

But I digress.

Xbox Live is contradictorily a place where I'm more mature than most places. I'd prefer to politely congratulate somebody on their amazing face-stick on Halo 3 than spout something homophobic which countless people (no offense intended, but usually players age 13 and under) seem to do.

In short, immature around your friends: OK. Immature in public: BAD.

January 9th, 2009, 10:20 PM
Only Xbox live alot of people are annoying and I dont even have an Xbox too know that.I just turn the volume off its better then hearing some stupid kid say he is going to do things with your mom not that he would want to if he knew how old she was.

January 10th, 2009, 12:11 AM
I am very young at heart, but I can argue the pants off a lawyer if I am defending my case.

January 10th, 2009, 12:16 AM
I don't think I am but some of my friends on this forum say I am so honestly I don't know what to think!

January 10th, 2009, 3:37 AM
I think one way of telling if someone is mature or not is how they handle conflict. Those of greater maturity will not take conflicts personally, will conduct arguments with reason, and will be open for counter arguments. They will also be willing to seek reasonable compromise and will be willing to admit when they are wrong.

Maturity is realising you are not the center of the universe, it's knowing the difference between when it is time to 'work' and when it is time to 'play. Granted many aspects of maturity tie in with responsibility.

In contrast, those that are unwilling to compromise when it is reasonable, unwilling to admit their mistakes, and refuse to see anything beyond their own beliefs or opinions are signs of those that lack maturity.

Likeing pokemon and video games and other 'childish' things has nothing to do with maturity, you can be enjoy these things and still be mature.

January 10th, 2009, 3:45 AM
I'm mature when i want to be. Which is most of the time. But it's fun to act childish some times. And you have to admit that =P

i've had people tell me that i have maturity beyond my age, and i have had people say i am very immature. i think it really depends on my environment, but on average, i would say mature beyond my age.

January 10th, 2009, 1:10 PM
Lol. I can be soo immature. But at the right times I can be a totally different person and be as mature as any 15 year old. I'd say I am mature, but not all the time.

January 10th, 2009, 1:25 PM
Most of the time, but obviously you can't be mature and still make your friends laugh at the same time. Try it, it doesn't work.

But yeah, I would say I am "mature beyond my years" or however they say it in the movies.

January 10th, 2009, 1:35 PM
Definatly, for my age Yes. I compare myself to friends at school and I noticed quite a difference.

January 10th, 2009, 1:36 PM
See, I took this quiz on Facebook telling you your "real" age. I got like, age 50+. DDDD8

But whatever.. Other times, I'll squeal and giggle and hop around like a fairy.

It depends on the situation; I'm very mature and prudish in public but I'll have my giddy moments and kid around with friends.

January 10th, 2009, 1:36 PM

whenver I see an opportunity for a stupid joke I usually take it...

...Which sort of goes against my Starsign [Scorpio]..

But I'm sort of mature in different ways...Like....uh....

I need to think :3

January 10th, 2009, 2:56 PM
I like to think so, but I know I have my moments where maturity is lax.

January 10th, 2009, 3:00 PM
Oh yes I'm very mature. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oHg5SJYRHA0)
I live on the Interwebs, not much you can expect from me.

Edit: Uh... If anyone doesn't mind, I could reply to you one by one (mostly negatively)... Or would you hate that?
Not at all; people in this world are too nice to one another so go ahead.

January 10th, 2009, 3:50 PM
Yes. 'Nuff said. I wouldn't have been able to have as much respect at my school as I do if not for my maturity.

Virtual Chatot
January 10th, 2009, 3:52 PM
Most of the time, but I slip up sometimes ( usually in front of friends... )

January 10th, 2009, 4:09 PM
I'd say i'm mature. I would say a person that is mature can tell when to have fun and when to act serious. I also think that a person has to be responsible.

January 10th, 2009, 6:48 PM
I think that being mature is when you know how to have a fun (safely, of course), but when the time comes for you to be serious about something, you can be. You also have to be responsible and be able to tell what is right from wrong, obviously.

January 11th, 2009, 10:53 AM
I'd like to tell myself I am but if I did, I'd be lying to myself.

the bitter end.
January 11th, 2009, 11:31 AM
I, for the most part, act maturely and have received several comments from teachers and the like about how mature I am. I do have occasional lapses though, mostly when people are saying amusing things in succession

January 11th, 2009, 11:59 AM
My definition for mature is someone who can think, imagine and accept the results of his acts, and I consider myself one, if well I think I still have room for improvement.

Playing videogames has nothing to do, I know a lot of people who have never looked at one and the last thing you can say about them is that they are mature.

January 11th, 2009, 12:32 PM
I am probably so mature, people hate me and I don't even know about it.

Although, if you consider my level of maturity a few years ago, I'd be like a 5 year old.

January 11th, 2009, 4:52 PM
I consider myself mature to a level. Honestly it depends on my mood of course.

January 12th, 2009, 4:08 AM
When necessary, I can act mature. But usually I like to have fun and make jokes and stuff. ;3

Black Omega Zero
January 12th, 2009, 9:44 PM
I am mature, way beyond my age, but only when necessary, it depends on the situation...
