I'm the only one in my age group so far. That'll be why I view most of the young fellas as immature and the old bastards as stuck-up know it alls. Or not. Maybe they just are.

14 - 16 is by far the most common age group here. Interesting.

I'm 14. Can't stand being around my age group in real life though, they're all immature little ****s. Maybe it's just my school. The 14 year olds on here seem to be a lot more mature than most others I know.
It's really difficult getting a part time casual job over the holidays though, I can't find anything suitable to fund my intended case modding next year. (planning neons, uv reactive cable sheathing, etc.)

Not quite, The poll merely demonstates that young teens are more likely to vote in a poll of this nature.

As statistical analyst Metla has already touched on, I wonder how many people here saw the poll and went "ah, no."

But don't forget 'Lies, damn lies, and statistics' & 'Statistics are like bikinis. What they reveal is suggestive, but what they conceal is vital' :badpc: :2cents:

no its not that hard, it all depends really where you live, say if you live in the country side, go down the road, find a dairy farm and ask for a job, most will take you in and give ya a job, but you got to know how to milk or they will teach you, its damn good money to be honest. :thumbs:

as ive said im 16 but i will be in the 7th form (year 13) next year and i wont be turning 17 until aug. im the youngest in my year and its actually pretty good, my mates are about a year older than me and when i talk to people the same age as me (5th formers) they are sooo different and immature :lol: :rolleyes: , ill only be 17 next year whereas every one will be 18 :dogeye:

Also 7th form next year

In Roman numerals, my age is starting to sound a bit like my nickname.

I'm LXIX now.

Next year I will be LXX :cool:

Hmm, comparing those two, it looks like I'll lose an I when I turn seventy.
Oh well, I suppose I can get away with a one-eyed outlook at that age. :stare:

Im 15 now, in the 6th form in 2005.

I definatly concur with what has been said above about the kids around your own age group seeming so much less mature, i suppose its all a product of the environment you live in, ie you grow up with the older kids, you begin to act like them.

That's a nice approach. I seem to be LXXXIV ( unless there is a neater way of expressing it).
Cheers Tony

Take a good look at all of the year level above you and you'll see the same immaturity present. They only appear more mature ;)

I would agree, but in my case my friends are like me in maturity, even though they are the same age. So it's not a problem for me.

That would explain a lot in my case. I've been accelerated a year, I'm in Year 11 next year instead of Year 10. All my friends except 2 are older than me by a year or two. My younger friends I have known since I was 5.

My mother alternated between two replies to this question from curious kids.
She was either 21 or 100.
My grandmother's version was :" The same age as my tongue - and a little older than my teeth."
I've decided to be 30 again (even if it does lay Mr Laura open to some serious charges over the age of his child bride...)

The poll is hardly fair seeing as there is a 20yr group for the first and only a 10yr group for the rest.......

Im under the age of ten, hence my asking for it ;-)

I don't see the reason for the poll in any case.

Growly

Because our school refuses to move people up levels (no, joining in a higher level class of six people, that no one else likes does NOT count), I can't say we have much age difference within our classes. The only cases are those that were moved up in their primary schools (that, if I may add for grudge's sake, weren't racist). For this reason you would not expect any difference in maturity between them.

I however find that completely different. I am a hypocrite I'll say that now, but I find people commenting that others of their age are immature slightly arrogant. The truth that I have found is that no one can escape maturity, for it only comes with wisdom and life experience. You try and tell me that you are, say, 14 and are as mature as your 15 year old peers, but I beg to differ.

I believe that what you are infact referring to is not maturity but more a dampened down version of it - you are, as lagbort touched on, surrounded (perhaps) by those older than you, and so are forced (in order to fit in) to act like them, think like them, and discuss like them. In my opinion you are still the youngin' bursting with energy and the desire to break rules and annoy people inside, but you suffocate that need. Unfortunately I have never seen this suffocation successfully. There are many occassions that I have seen the "maturer" younger person do things completely differently, in a somewhat more childish manner than an older person faced with the same problem.

Now I'm not trying to define maturity, I'm just saying that from what I know, the act-as-your-peers-would is exactly that. Sure, the higher end of your attitude spectrum (i.e. the part that tells you to shut up to keep quiet in church) is more founded, but the lower end still doesn't know how to not act.

To top my entire misworded, horribly phrased, and negligible opinion, I find that when people say that they are more mature than others their age they are infact referring to the fact that others do not take life as seriously. Sure this lack of seriousness extends occassionally into blatant rudeness but when it comes down to it, these "immature" "brats" (as some may say) are the same as others there age.

(By the way, I have taken the liberty of making a huge generalisation, and the first person to disagree with me gets coal for Christmas, 'cause I'm immature and I'll cry to my mummy).

You know what? Scratch everything I just said. I'm not one to delete paragraphs so I won't do it for you. What I'm trying to say is that especially untill you've finished high school, you're not mature enough to determine how mature you yourself are, and you are even less able to determine your maturity compared to others. Why? Because a) you can't possibly b) no one will believe you and c) the second you say something everyone will bring you down and call you a hypocrite (just watch).

like this
typing every second word
on a new line
pretty much
at the interval
an asthmatic

And it's really boring...
