Mental Maturity

Success

The Problem of Immaturity: Human beings are rational. However, they are also swayed by emotions, irrational thoughts and beliefs, unverified assumptions and logical fallacies. Companies and business organizations use many tactics to influence and motivate customers' buying choices and employees' working habits by cleverly manipulating their thinking or exploiting their beliefs. Although people are expected to mature with age, it does not uniformly happen in all. Therefore, many remain immature even after reaching adult age. In some people immaturity may remain confined to certain aspects of their behavior due to various early influences and predisposing factors. Immaturity is inherent in human nature since many memories of childhood remain within the consciousness either overtly or covertly and influence adult behavior. The problem of immaturity is not specific to individuals only. Even groups and nations suffer from it. It is a perceptible problem in many nations where people prefer to live in ignorant ways and rely upon irrational beliefs and blind faith rather than use reason and reality to guide themselves. The following essays deal with the subject of mental maturity and how to cultivate it to achieve mental stability and rational thinking.
