    I aim for youthful body, mature mind. Not too formal though.

    At work, I prefer being "quickly & ambitiously being mature, grown up, & professional in working world". However, in real life, I prefer a mixture of "mature when it's called for" and "child-like when I have the chance."

    I went for the middle option.

    Maturity is one of those subjective things that many people seem to think they are and everyone else isn't. I have no time what so ever for subjective labels, and why would I want to become regimented and sensible?

    To add to that, youth isn't something you can get back. To be mature, you just need to decide to be and do it. It can obviously wait.

    ...says the idealist-
    To me, "mature" & "youthful" go hand-in-hand.

    The Mature Introvert

    Maturity is most important for introverts because introverts have something to mature.

    The danger for introverts is, seeing they are not as initially successful as extroverts, that they will try to imitate an extrovert.

    This doesn't work and subverts the slow maturation into relaxed introversion.

    In fact all an introvert needs to do is to learn to relax, and in particular, learn to relax in painful situations.

    But this is easier said than done, but systematically learning to relax puts introverts onto the path to maturity.

    And there is nothing nicer than a mature introvert.

    can't I choose youthful appearance and mature personality?

    I was trying to think of a counterexample, but I can't. =/
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?
