Who Is More Mature, Men Or Women

A Study has revealed that Men mature later than Women.

The term Maturity is relative and is subjective.

Men and Women ,Maturity
Maturity is measured differently from one Ethnic Group to another.

Taking relative parameters to arrive at a conclusion, to me, seems incorrect.


UK comic series called Wendell & Vinnie, which features a 30-year-old bachelor who suddenly becomes the legal guardian of his mature 12-year-old nephew.

“As a man, especially one who works for a children’s channel, the question if men ever reach maturity is one I am well accustomed to,” Tim Patterson, Nickelodeon’s programming director, said.

The study confirmed the suspicions that men mature later than women. In fact, men were almost twice as likely to describe themselves as immature than women were, and one in four men believe they are actively immature. Three out of ten women ended a relationship because they lost patience with their man’s immaturity.

The male and female perceptions of themselves and each other were alarming. Eight out of ten women believe that men will “never stop being childish.” Women defined the childish acts that bother them most as, passing gas, burping, eating fast food in the last hours of the night, and playing videogames.

Women were twice as likely to experience the feeling that they were the grownup one in their current relationship. Forty-six percent of the female participants studied have had a relationship in which they felt they had to mother their male counterpart. Women claimed they actually had to tell their man to, “act his age” on an average of 14 times a year, more than once a month.

Besides maturity, women yearned for communication. One quarter of women wished their partners would talk about themselves and what they felt more often. Women also felt they were the ones that made all the important decisions in their relationships.

The study also exposed ” Men’s Top 30 Maturity Failings — As Experienced By Women” The top ten are listed as the following:

  1. Finding their own passing of gas and burps amusing
  2. Eating fast food at 2:00 AM
  3. Playing videogames
  4. Driving too fast
  5. Finding rude words amusing
  6. Driving with loud music
  7. Playing practical jokes
  8. Trying to beat children at games and sports
  9. Staying silent during an argument
  10. Not being able to cook simple meals



Women, generally, are good decision makers.

Their decision-making is instinctive.
Sometimes they deliberate over the’gut feeling ‘ and take a Deliberate decision:only then the decision goes awry.
Women are wise spenders, not withstanding th jibes at their perceived preferences to Dress and jewelry.
They normally are more empathetic than men.
Their problem solving skills are intuitive.
They are mentally tougher than men.
They ,at times, place themselves and their families over any thing else.
These are the traits I have observed and there are always exceptions.

  1. Well the article is almost true. But for sure majority of the Men are Lateral thinkers, which promotes certain situations to improve. While very few women are lateral thinkers. Most womens solutions to a problem are simple & straight forward while mens are twisted and indirect. or more complicated. Still it works.
