    It's a damn good question. Too often, people think their own particularly cheesy way to view things sets the standard for maturity.
    I view maturity as the ability to be real with yourself and others about your thoughts, feelings and views, to own them as your own, and to make good on your insights while thriving in this mode of living. Good judgment helps.
    Blathering on and on about your unsupported pet hunches is not maturity. Abdicating the use of reason is not maturity. Lying to yourself and placating people to the detriment of your integrity is not maturity. Nor is sycophancy.

    The ability to confront your problems (whether they be situations or people related) instead of avoiding or running away from them.

    We only reach full maturity when we die as maturity indicates full development.

    As for my thoughts on maturity,
    (1) Humour in most situations.
    (2) Balance
    (3) Some forethought
    (4) Confidence

    Someone who finds humor in everything and takes everything as it comes. And who also has the ability to do the opposite when the situation calls for it!

    "Drinking on a daily basis is not the only way to be an adult."

    "Well I tried not talking about my feelings, too."

    "Oh son, behaving like a grown up is many things. First and for most it means doing things that you hate doing. Like dealing with people who make you unhappy, being stressed about things you have no control over, working soul-numbing jobs. Then gradually as we endure these hardships and accept them as normal, that's when we finally earned the right to get drunk and be emotionally distant from our families."

    Good question. I would say someone who takes over responsibility for himself and maybe in some things for those close to him.
