Maturity Essay, Research Paper
There is a time and place for everything, and this is why people must learn to present themselves in the correct manner. Dealing with certain types of authority requires a certain amount of maturity towards the person\person’s you may come into contact with. I, for instance, have to present myself accommodatingly for the proper authority. This means that that I live in two different worlds. A world of presenting myself in the correct manner when dealing with a higher authority. Also, allowing myself to adjust to those whom are of lower authority then myself.
There is a certain way that I feel that I must adjust to, given the authority of the person that I come in contact with. When I come into contact with a person that has a higher amount of authority, such as parents, teachers, and bosses. I know that I have to adjust the way that I normally speak to a way that is more accommodating to theirs. The change that I would most likely have to make is a grammar change because I know that I can’t speak to them the same way that I would speak to a friend. That might make that person think less of me. That person may feel as if I have no respect for them, and I wouldn’t want to come across as being disrespectful.
When I come into contact with a person who is of less or the same authority as me, such as friends, associates, people I work with, and sometimes teachers. I say teachers because some teachers allow students converse with them the same way the would to a friend. Anyway, if that were the case then I would totally change the way that I act with these people to a way that is more comfortable or, more myself. I enjoy being with people who are more on my level then those who have more authority then me because, then you don’t have to be “fake”, or act in a way that is just a front to your true personality. With these people they are most likely not going to think any less of you because of the way you act because 9 times out of 10 they act in the same ways that you do.
In conclusion I would like to say that being with people who are more like you can in some ways be a bad thing and sometimes be a good thing because being around the same people all the time will give you less of a chance to grow. Where as being around people who have more authority over you, and possibly know a little more about life then you do can help you grow.
