Are you often the victim or find that nothing is your fault? Take the quiz to find out just where you rank on the emotional maturity scale.
Emotional maturity is defined by the ability to control your emotions and take full responsibility for your life along with its opportunities and dramas. A large part of being emotionally mature is having the ability to handle anger, disappointment, guilt, resentment, fear, jealousy, disappointment, grief, insecurity, and a myriad of other feelings appropriately. Emotional maturity is defined when you have the ability to experience these emotions and then quickly let them go. People who are immature seem to remain stuck in these negative emotions, unable to get past them.
When you are emotionally immature you have a hard time seeing life clearly and accurately, and how to deal with it. When things go wrong, and lets face it things will always go wrong, you often blame others. It’s never your fault. You might also be highly sensitive to things that are done to you, but oblivious to what you do or how you make others feel. You might often feel like the victim in life, yet any choices or decisions you have made play no part in your current state.
Emotionally immature people are emotionally dependent. They seek to find reasons to justify their feelings and often are skilled at manipulating others. Rather than accept what is, emotionally dependent people tend to obsess about how to get others to think like them. They will resort to unhealthy behaviors to get their way, even if it cost them what was once a loving relationship.
