Would you share your definition of maturity and the processes to become mature?

Watching people and seeing my own pathway to "grey hair", I have often thought about the question, 'what is maturity and when will we know we arrived/achieved?'

What ideals wait upon persons who seek maturity? Yes, I know; maturity varies and is not necessarily linked to body age. Given wide variances in human experiences, what could you say that defines maturity.

TED players are invited to help define maturity. Please disregard what you think others have said or will say; just dig into your experiences and ideals.

    • May 19 2013: Hi Lamar, I preferred not to add qualifiers. You have a "blank check" for your definition and processes to maturation.

      I want to wait a few days to give people ample time to think and respond.
