    I listened to that a while ago and liked it, and was surprised by some of the backlash in the comments. It seemed to me her overall point was "embrace time instead of waiting for it to pass, even if you're not doing exactly what you thought you might be". I didn't see it as a particularly threatening "hurry up and go" but more of a "don't feel like you have to wait this one out".

    How about technology and its impact on childhood experiences?

    Seems like the advent of technology has pushed kids to cramming in their study materials even more so that there's more to learn and less time for play. (Maybe from where I'm from bc all kids are now required to have access to i-pads in class)

    I think technology can rob a kid's childhood away, therefore, crippling them in adolescence, which also adds to quarterlife crisis.

    Kids need to be out, roll in mud, play with their friends, fight, laugh, hug, blow bubbles, play in their own worlds of imagination.. technology should be the last thing they touch so they can have healthier patterns of social interaction and behavior- not from a machine or behind a screen but actual real "live" people in person. They need to feel that connection!

    I feel sorry for the younger generations, as mine was probably the last to truly enjoy childhood as stated above..

    You'll always being considered a kid by those older than you. At least until you're in a rocking chair somewhere. (If you make it that far into life.)

    So I don't see how any definition outside of a legal one matters.

    To begin with I thought school's not like work but on second thoughts I think you're pretty close to the mark actually. In the last two to three years the extent to which the in and out group phenomenons, popularity contests and adolescent social game playing is still a major, major factor in adult life and adult workplaces, including professionals credited with having more insight has really, really hit home with me. I never would have thought it would be the case.

    When you're a kid you're actually much less likely to be alienated by work, or certain sorts of work, than when you are an adult, when I think about the amount of toys I possessed and games I played which were actually about what adults consider menial work or manual labour. Its still the same today, my grand parents would wonder why the hell people spend so long on farmville but have awful looking gardens or concrete over their lawns to save the hassel of keeping them.

    I used to think for a while that people liked the carefree dependency of being younger but I dont ever remember enjoying that myself and then I thought perhaps its to do with becoming disilluioned, you can only have so many first time experiences before they are all done and you know that while driving, drinking alcohol, sex, earning a living and receiving a pay check can be fun or rewarding they arent anything near as fun or rewarding as the fantasy of the same thing which you and your friends believed in back in the day.

    well, that's not happening any time soon

    All of this. Just. So. Ridiculous.


    Maybe squeeze in talking to a woman somewhere in there. They might have a bit of info on their own sexual primes. Also what is the relevance of gay men to female sexuality?

    Also if find you idea of honest amongst men ....silly.

    Development, or perceived maturity, is more type related than age related. Judgers, especially SJs, tend to strive for (or settle into) what's typically seen as maturity, whereas perceivers (especially TPs) don't, and tend to be seen as "immature" for longer.

    What the article is saying aside, "you don't shave and you say what's on your mind, so you're immature" is that talk.

    If we could actually talk about cognitive development versus all the traditional BS, then we could see what maturity is for a certain type of person. For some people, becoming what is traditionally seen as mature is actually a massive failure in their life (they've lost who they are in favor of being some other type of person) and it has come as a result of constant nagging (and worse) to grow up and to conform to the standard of what it means to be grown.

    There is something about the prefrontal cortex not completely developing until someone is around 25, so maybe there is something there.

    I think a lot of people do like that carefree dependency, though. Why, I can't fathom. People often express how much they miss childhood because it was "simpler".
