    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.
    Well put. Every now and again, Victor, you say something people really should take note of.

    Well I just left school and I'm working in a big old coporate company for a year and I hate it!
    Because you have to ACT mature. They don't care if you are mature just as long as you act mature!

    So I choose child like!

    tbh I like being a childlike adult (just adult just) better than a childlike child, an adult child or an adult adult.

    "Intelligence is being able to hold too opposing views in the mind at the one time without going crazy" - Now all I need to figure out is if I'm intelligent or crazy!

    Hmmm, I don't believe they are mutually exclusive...

    I think what defines "maturity" is confidence, knowing yourself, being unselfish, being able to let go, being aware of the effects of your own actions and taking responsibility for them. What defines "youthfulness" is hope, optimism, not taking life too seriously, can-do attitude, ideals and energy. It's possible to have both
