    I just meant that the average INTP acts this way when engaging in Fe. Ne is the most important part of maturity, but control of our inferior (often called aspiration function) Fe is a task not completed by most until later life. Control of Fe means complete maturity. Normally when we engage in Fe we seem immature.

    totally true.

    If we're not using Ne we have to use Si. TiSi is quite introverted, or else we use SiFe which is not as introverted but it is completely unnatural to us and quite fake.

    And besides all that, there's still the question as to what maturity really means.

    I believe to reach maturity, it's important to find a balance between introvert and extravert behaviour and master that balance. And for INTP's, Using Ne is our way to do so.

But around my friends, I'm more fake, immature, etc. Any thoughts?
    You seem to be relating mature to seriousness. Out of all my relatives my great aunt and uncles are the most mature i know but the least serious.

    By immature I mean college kids in large flocks. They all have a mature side, but the drama and the fakeness is contagious when they get in groups.

    I don't know what you mean.
    I mean being thoughtful and serious doesn't make you mature.

    In order to be completely mature, you must master your Fe and unfortunately if you are still young, that will be a hard task.

    When I rely more on Ti than Ne I may seem more mature to observers, but when I look at myself from the perspective of a mature person I realize how naive I really am.
