Being able to identify Maturity in the other persons is crusial for so many reasons.

It helps you make sure you choose:

the right partner for your company

The right spouse for your marriage

The right friend in your life

The right parent to have children with

And the right mentor to have advice from

Below  is what I believe the criteria of a Mature Person, and since we’re talking about a human being, just keep in mind that it’s done “as much as possible” not “Always”.
