Conception of a 52 year old American male with MA/MS degrees who
is new to the Graves work:
mature person is:
able and willing to articulate clearly--to him/herself and
others--what s/he thinks, feels, and wants;
able and willing to listen openly as others articulate what they
think, feel, and want;
and able and willing to combine these into a new synthesis that
may include and transcend elements of both.
Conception of a 44 year old American male with graduate school
education who is somewhat familiar with the Graves' model:
the mature personality in operation. The mature personality
realizes the inter-related nature of all beings and realizes that
in the core of each being is a shared ontology or self. The mature
personality is unattached to the objects of experience, yet also
celebrates the existence of those objects. The mature personality
celebrates life while being rooted in the Stillness beyond life.
The mature personality is beyond religion, yet is spiritual.
