About This Quiz

Being able to respond to situations and act appropriately is a huge part of psychological maturity. Additionally, being able to take in other people's feelings and reactions and, again, act, respond and react appropriately is another factor. Psychological maturity is rated on a scale, but the scale can vary based on what is being studied. Some studies take a look at how schooling impacts people's psychological maturity. Some try to determine purely situational maturity, while others focus on emotional psychological maturity.

Emotions are big and could possibly be the foundation for all measures of maturity. This is because some people are taught that it's okay to show emotions and feel things freely, while others are taught to repress feelings and that only certain people need to hear about them. The variety in teachings will show up in almost every aspect of life. 

Everyone needs to go through periods of immaturity, and you can even go through that phase while otherwise very mature. Psychological maturity is not linear, but rather it is determined by what is going on in your life. Just get fired? You might not respond to other people's emotions and downturns well because you are going through your own. But people who are more evolved might know how to separate the two and still be able to be there for other people.
