How Psychologically Mature Are You?


Have you ever been called immature or told to act your age? Or are you an old soul in the body of a youngster, someone who's always felt a bit more grown-up than your peers? Psychological maturity is subjective and doesn't depend on how old you are.

Hallmarks of maturity include but are not limited to independence, compassion, self-discipline, emotional intelligence, and relative calm in the face of a storm. So put your introspective hat on and jump right into this very unscientific but illuminating quiz. You'll find out whether your attitudes and behaviors sync up nicely with your biological age or whether you still have some inner work to do. Your clock begins now! Just kidding. The only clock you need to worry about is the one counting down the seconds till you, erm, reach enlightenment.

Did you know?

Does maturity differ across cultures?

Across cultures, individuals moving into early adulthood change noticeably. Brain development continues until age 25, and emerging adults shift in how they relate to others and act. They become more cooperative and responsible, and they tend to be less moody. Cheers to that!

Although genes do inform personality, life experiences are just as important in the making of an adult. Research has shown that cultures that expose members to adult responsibilities slightly earlier have notably more mature young adults. In addition, social-role transitions such as marriage, parenthood, and employment are substantial contributors to changed personalities.

Numerous cultures celebrate the move from child to adult with coming of age ceremonies such as sweet 16 parties or quinceaneras. Jewish teens have bar or bat mitzvahs, religious services followed by parties. Catholic teens are confirmed and are now adults, according to the church. These rituals are of faith-based significance rather than being representative of legal adulthood.

How to Play?

Our personality quizzes are set up a little differently than your basic trivia quiz, but you’ve probably seen their kind around. Rather than having to choose the right answer from a list of multiple choice options, in this case, there is no “right answer”! (Two plus two will always be four, but every Golden Girls character is equally awesome.)

So, stop stressing. Just click on the answer that suits you best, and enjoy the ride. These quizzes are just for fun but who knows – you might just learn something about yourself along the way!
