"impulsiveness shows immaturity"?
My brother says "impulsiveness shows immaturity." Anyone agree?

I felt like slinging the phone against the wall quite a few times while trying (being the operative word here) to talk to my sister and brother. I finally had enough and just hung up after he said that there... then slung the phone against the bed because it was a lot less likely to break than against the wall.

Thank you, brother, for calling me immature. I'm glad to know where you stand in your opinion of me. Thank you so very much for your lack of faith in your own blood!

Re:

Yeah, that's what is so weird about this. Almost everyone I know who isn't my family says I'm mature beyond my years as well. In fact, when meeting new people they've told me they find it hard to believe I'm actually 17, or once they met me their fears of me being immature were wrong.

No. Impulsiveness shows a willingness to look at life as an adventure. A basic refusla to let fear of the unknown rule you.

Immaturity can sometiems breed a sort of impulsiveness -- ignorance of possible outcomes makes everything an adventure. But the way to tell the difference: the immature impulsive does STUPID things. Like racing trains on the tracks or playing with explosives.

Also: You're, what, 17? Tell him to cut you some slack on the whole maturity thing. You're ahead of your peers, hands down.
