    In terms of your behaviour, how mature would you consider yourself to be? How do you generally handle people who are acting immaturely, and have you ever felt that you've been treated or perceived unkindly by others who have considered you be immature?

    I'm probably the most immature person on my school, but that's the reason why my friends like me. I would do everything for a good joke and most of my jokes are dirty and childish. 50% of my classmates like me cause of this and the other 50% completly hate my.

    I can be both really- like if I’m in a class of loud and obnoxious people, I’ll be the mature one and be quiet. But when I’m with friends I act silly and immature. But generally I try to be mature.

    I am very mature, especially for my age. I take things seriously when almost nobody else does, and I am totally the most mature, wise, awesome, humble person I know. And no, bragging is NOT immature... If it's true.

    Well, I still feel like a big child, and I get really anxious and upset when things don't go my way sometimes, which I guess is immature, and yet I feel like I'm more mature than not...I don't know. I get so furious when other people act immaturely when we're doing something that I take really seriously. Having fun is great, but there's a time and a place for that, and in the middle of rehearsal is not it.

    And yeah, I've definitely had a hard time with people who think I behave immaturely. I've been kicked out of group activities because the leader in charge didn't like my attitude (still haven't quite gotten over that one). And more recently I've been struggling with people who don't necessarily see me as immature, but they do see me as a kid. Like, there's a youth group (ages 12-18), and a women's group, and I've been going to the women's group for five years, but they still group me in with the youth. Then again, they still talk about another young woman who is married and has a little child of her own like she's in the youth group as well, so at least it's not just me.

    I don't think I'm very mature, but if you were someone looking at me, you'd say that I'm the most mature person you'd ever met. Ever since I was in middle school, I've heard that I was very mature and acted far beyond my years. I still think that I'm a kid on the inside and I refer to myself as such. However, I'm calm all the time and when I do get emotional, I never let my emotions control my actions. I'd rather make the best, rational decisions than pull out a half hearted emotional one.

    When I come across someone who isn't acting mature, I just patiently wait for them to stop acting mature, and I'm very patient. I'd be as polite about their behavior as I can while not giving into what ever their immature streak is demanding. I've never been treated like I'm immature, though I wasn't all that social with other either.

    Unless I’m hanging out with my friends or parents, I’m pretty serious looking. I rarely raise my voice, don’t make rude comments, and susually keep a straight face. If someone treats me poorly, I’ll just brush it off instead of being confrontational. I can be pretty immature when it comes to responsibilities. My parents might ask me for help and I’ll ask them why they can’t do it themselves. It’s a bad habit and I’m trying to work on it.

    As for tolerating immature people, it can be hard. I cannot handle loud noises well, and when other people raise their I get uncomfortable.

    Here are a couple immature things I see my classmates do that frustrate me:

    Students who make rude remarks about classmates and teachers when they're nearby. Why can’t they wait until the person they’re gossiping about is gone? It might still be rude, but at least the target doesn’t have to hear it.

    People who call others jerks or idiots while acting the same way. It’s the definition of hypocritical and immature behavior, but boy is it an effective way to get under my skin.

    Not admitting you bullied someone. If you’re in trouble, own up to it and move on instead of lying. You’re less likely to get a bad punishment.

    Only standing up for your friends. My school is a breeding ground for bullies because of how much students can get away with. You can call a kid just about anything and the teacher won’t even bat an eye. When this happens, the student just ignores them and the people around them do nothing. I get most people don’t want to be a “snitch,” but not doing anything encourages the bully to do it more. The only times I’ve seen kids stand up for other students is when their friends are being targeted. While it’s great to help out your friends when they need you, it’s also important to realize that not everyone knows someone like that.

    Depends on the day, I tend to crack and break under pressure or if I've not had enough sleep.

    I'm mature. I can proudly say that.
    Handling bad situation with calmness is surely a sign of maturity. And, studying the surrounding areas before thinking about fashion, is too.
    I also have convinced myself not to react much at any situation.

    And the thing about how I deal with immature people, well I'm mature enough to avoid them, and even ignore them if the situation asks for it. Hehe~
