There are countless reasons why people may act or feel a certain age at any given point in their lives. Feeling a certain age is not a static thing, nor is it something that always follows a pre-determined pattern. Some people act older when they are children then have a second childhood in their retirement years. Others act like children until they become parents and then seem to click into a different mode. It can be helpful and insightful to learn which stage you're at right now, and why.
Nobody fits neatly into a given category. There are several components in your emotional age: behavior, feelings, and responsibility. In the area of behavior, you seem to fall into the "adolescent" category. This means that you're probably very focused on your immediate environment. The positive qualities of being an "adolescent" are an easy-going attitude and a willingness to try many things that "older" people shy away from. Your sense of adventure and risk-taking is probably strong. This reveals your exciting and fun sides. This may mean, however, that you find a thrill in rebelling. Doing things that you "shouldn't" can lead to trouble, so be careful! Due to the egocentric nature of adolescence, it might sometimes be difficult for you to see how your actions can affect others.
In the realm of emotions, you seem to fall into the "adult" category. This means that you are probably in control of your emotions. You can recognize your feelings and express them clearly. You are probably rational and composed, but you make sure that you do not neglect your own emotions. This healthy balance allows you to interact well with others, while staying true to yourself.
When it comes to the level of responsibility you assume, for yourself or others, you fall into the "adult" category. This means that you are probably someone who can be relied on to come through in any situation. People around you likely consider you dependable and strong. Don't let your dominant care-taking side force you to neglect your own needs. Keep a healthy balance and continue to take care of yourself too.
