So as we change when we grow, I do not know your meaning. A little is not a child, and a child is not an elder. A babe does not think or do as a man; none may gainsay this.

From the wises in which I did in high school I have become an unlike man. I do not seek friends or good will or do the deeds of others, and most unlike this has made me in wises. I learn, think, and do unlike things, and then I learned or thought little; and of custom and fellowship was I a thrall.

Actually, it doesn't stop at 25. The brain is a plastic organ. Just look at cases where speech has returned after brain damage, it rewires itself.

However, we are born with all the neurons we are going to get. You can't become smarter, no matter how much you age.

Did you ever saw someone who changed in personality appeaance etc. over time?


I don't think my personality changed much. When put in a similar situation I act similar to how I used to. My interests don't seem to have changed very much either.

I'm essentially the person I always have been, but much has changed as well.

I think differently and behave very differently from when I was a young adult. My personality is the same, but it's tempered by all my experiences and I manage myself much better.

I think it's called maturing.

Aren't most of you in your 20's? I'd imagine you haven't changed much as yet.

Do people often change after their 20s? My parents don't seem to have changed one bit since I was little.

Are your parents PD'ed? mental health issues? addicted?

Do they read and think broadly? give themselves new experiences and put themselves into new situations?

Do they challenge their own thinking? go over long held beliefs to see if they still believe?

Do they adapt to new/changing environments? Have they moved? changed jobs? gone back to school? got new friends?

If the answers to the first questions have a yes, and the remaining questions have mostly no's, then no wonder that there has been little change.

Something has to change to bring about a change.

^that makes sense. My parents have always been terrified of change and unwilling to listen to others.

I'm glad that I ended up becoming a jobless uni dropout with no significant other. It's better than being stuck in a job you hate, wasting time on lectures that won't actually help you (as I've recently found out), stuck in a dysfunctional relationship just because changes are scary.
