So I guess it's some fact that human brains aren't fully mature until age 25?
Dr Phil said it as fact, and no one seemed to argue it as fact so I'm assuming it proven or something.
Ok, so I'm 22, does that mean I'm not a capable adult yet?
Why can we drive at 16, and at 18 we are deemed 'adults', and then at 21 we can drink...if we aren't even fully matured in the brain til 25.
Did you all who are older then 25 notice some sort of brain capacity at your 25th birthday?
Do you think you were somehow less capable in decisions prior to your 25th birthday?
I know plenty of adults under 25 who sure appear to have great decision making skills and I know many many adults over 25 who make one bad choice after another....
Maybe it's not as proven as they think. Idk kinds pisses me off tho :)
