From A Notion Adulthood To A Bombshell

706 words - 3 pages

Adulthood is a period of time in the life that follows the adolescence. Actually, the age at which a person is considered an “adult” varies significantly according to the reference based on; there are countless deviations from this benchmark. Being genuine, deliberate and thoughtful is actually being an adult. Law-makers, philosophers and biologists, for instance, differ in identifying the age at which adolescence ceases and adulthood begins. Disregarding all of them, people should be considered adults by the age of 21.
First of all, the degree of maturity depends directly on the way one interacts and deals with others. A “mature” person is realistic and has high attitudes and appropriate behaviors towards the others. Usually, people at the age of 18 aren’t mature enough to take responsibility or to deal properly with their society as people at the age of 21 do. For instance, taking an 18 year-old friend and a 21 year-old one, one can notice the huge differences both share. The first one always tries to get himself younger through his teen behaviors. For example, he finds himself more comfortable with 15-18 year-old friends than with 18-21 year-old ones while discussing, sharing ideas, etc. Unlike him, the other 21 year-old friend doesn’t find difficulties by mingling with others who are older than him or by taking responsibility. To illustrate, he seems always serious and more comfortable whenever he’s talking with others, especially old ones. In addition, the boss of the company he works for is used to trust his fruitful work after giving him any responsibility, even a big one.
In addition to maturity, another characteristic has to be noticed on an adult: the ability to manage feelings and throw teen habits away. Usually, this characteristic is rather found on people at the age of 21 than on people at the age of 18. To be specific, a Japanese survey done in 2012 shows that 53% of people who are able to manage personal emotions such as fears,...
