Well i certainly want to work more now and now i have a full time job i dont know if that makes me mature lol
I do like this practical idea of it such as how well we can take care of people, starting with ourselves (bonus points for others). I think being able to take care of ourselves financially definitely adds to it, but that was sort of an easy part for me. I auto-piloted the study and career stuff. I figure we all have our maturity challenges. Mine is that I'm reckless, impulsive, and tend to not think so far into the future. Maybe your is being a bit shyness and prone to self-doubt -- almost like opposite of my thing.
Getting a job for me was very hard though. Shyness and introversion will always be me I don’t believe it should be a part of maturity it’s just how my personality is I could work more on eye contact more
It’s funny because everything you listed women still do less than men but yet everyone always says women are more mature than men.
@chris_987 You can't judge based on the few women you know. There's a lot of women who also do these things, but not everyones perfect. Nobody expects men to be super mature because sometimes immaturity makes things more interesting.
Few women? Every women I know including my mother has a hard time with forgiveness. I’ve only been blocked by women on this website and I also read a study saying that women have a hard time letting go of grudges much more than men. So you can deny reality if you want. But I’m just telling you what I’ve observed
@chris_987 I can agree with you that there are a lot of women than struggle with forgiving others. I know that I personally have learned to easily let go of grudges because at the end of the day, it only affects me. So my point is that forgiveness takes time to learn especially if trust is broken. Everyone sometimes struggles to forgive, so we have to train ourselves to make it a habit to let go. Women mostly struggle with trust, so forgiveness tends to be harder for them so they build up a wall to protect themselves. I know it sounds like an excuse but its based on personal observation and experience.
So your admitting that women are less mature than men because they struggle to forgive other. Because men find it easy to forgive which you state was a sign of maturity
@chris_987 This isn't a battle Chris. I can't speak on behalf of all women! What I can say is that I am more mature than some of the men in my life. All I can say is that the women in your life are less mature in THAT specific department. We all have flaws that make us unique :))
But women have no problem saying men are less mature. Why all of a sudden when you actual evidence based of your yardstick, you can’t admit that? Seems like girls only choose battles they can win.
@chris_987 Chris, are women calling you immature? This seems like its a personal topic for you, but I'll still answer your questions. I used personal evidence because it only seems logical to make an estimate using the people around me. Girls dont choose battle that they know they will win. I know a lot of girls who will argue knowing that they have a chance of losing and yet they go on. I just believe a lot of girls have trust issues which make it hard to forgive but it doesn't make them immature. There are many qualities that people must obtain to be considered mature and thats why people tend to believe that girls are more mature because they have MOST of the qualities. They dont have to have every single one to be considered mature. No girls perfect
But you moving the goalposts, one minute you said immature have a hard time forgiving then you say girls reason for not forgiving is not because there immature, it’s because girls have a hard time trusting people. That is a text book example of how girls argue. Why would you think you would loose when you can personally attack me to make my argument illegitimate and then include factors that have nothing to do with your original point.
@chris_987 Okay look, nobodys attacking you personally. You just seem super passionate about a topic that isn't a big deal. Okay so lemme clear up this misunderstanding. there's no such thing as a 100% mature person. There will always be some place that people will lack. A QUALITY of immaturity is not being able to forgive easily, but it doesn't mean you are considered fully immature, it just means you have a quality that is considered immature. Women are often considered mature because they have a lot of mature qualities but men have a lot of qualities that are considered immature. Also because of some science that has to do with brain connectivity. If HYPOTHETICALLY women consider you immature, dont worry about it to much. What people think of you shouldn't matter, just keep living your life. If they can't find good qualities in you and can't see your worth, then leave.
Your right but I only pose challenge you on the question because society teaches boys that girls are more mature because we don’t sit still and class and would much rather run around. I’m passionate about this subject because it actually cause harm to males overall. If we put boys on medication for not acting like girls then we can’t act like it not gonna effect them later on in life. I’m sure you might not be able to relate to what effects telling boys they have to act like girls has. But maybe you will one day.
@chris_987 Well I'm glad you found a topic that your passionate about and trying to make a change! I hope my responses was able to bring you insight on other viewpoints on this topic! :))
