    well, i am not too sure but age doesn't measure maturation at all......perhaps it might be, to some people; you know everyone of us is very "unique" so that brings no straight answer for that. "i will be glad for correction if i am wrong"

    Hahahahahaha ... Shu Qi ... but why?

    FYI ... I thought about it when I was about 9 ... or 10 ... but I am still thinking about it ...

    Hahahahaha ... if my memory serves me right, my mother used to call me "old man" before I was 10, and I am fairly sure I have not (mentally) aged since then ... so, "no" ...

    Hahahaha ... Fish ... being (or becoming) aware of job benefit, means that you are concerned about "what's in it for me" ...

    And somehow, I dont think it is related to "maturity", perhaps more to do with "life experience" ... or ... becoming less passionate about a job (like when we were young, we would "go go go") ...

    (continued) ... hahahaha ... you are far from old ... but when you get old, I think you might look like this ..

    Hahahahahaha ... Shu Qi ... Dayna WU is correct ... sometimes, being immature has its up side ...

    (continued) ... heehee ... and I was just about to look for this thread for update ... thanks Shu Qi ...

    It is not a big secret that I had chatted (or even met) with many people from, and off, this site, including both male and female, mostly in their twenties ...

    It just so happened that I was just chatting with one particular girl of WLIB that I have known for about two years, and I was kind of surprised (happy as well as sad) to observe her quantum leap in maturity, due to what happened over the last two years ... from a know-nothing innocent girl to an independently strong woman ...

    ... everyone travels his/her own paths, gaining different experiences and learning different lessons, so, there is no "fixed" process or formula for maturity ...

    If by maturation we mean - leave behind the childhood-,  I think no if there isn´t any kind of rites of passage by means. 

    You don't need go alone to the forest and survive during 2 weeks, you don´t need kill one lion or wolf......XD      Just things like leave your parent´s home, get your first job, even loose your virginity :P ..... and many others can be good rites of passage if you do them well.
