A Facade?

Am making a bunch of generalizations here but these are just based on my observations in life.

People who seem very mature at the outside aren't quite so in real. Its just how they want people to see them and recognize them - as mature grownups, while they are indeed not. Half their time is spent in projecting themselves to people as this perfect person. Making an impression is what matters. Being the raw you is considered uncouth. Life is spent for the society and taking pleasure in their praises.

One might argue that you become what you believe in. But there is a fine line b/w that and not recognizing ones true self. Instead people become this person whom everyone admires. Like the coach says in Rocky - you spend half your time being a gentleman rather than what you are within. Need I explain the rest?

And then these people who seem like a joker / crack pot are usually quite mature when it comes to life. These people talk non-sense, make a fool of themselves never quite bothering what others think of them. At least that (how others perceive them) doesn't take priority over being themselves. Coz most of these people don't need others to assert their worth. There are some who go to the extreme of living in their world of glory while I have predominantly seen the others live true to self.

I guess one of the above characteristics dominate in each one of us. Ever took time to wonder which one dominates in you?
