    What age do you mature into an adult?

    Or is it more of a case-by-case, ongoing progression?

    Adulthood isn't tied to chronology. I've known old men who weren't, and children who were. For some, it is a progression-unto-death. For others, it stops one day, and they remain stuck at that level of maturity.

    You mature into an adult whether you like it or not.
    An emotionally mature person is one who is able to handle his emotions well and is in control of the circumstances s/he is in.  He /she makes decisions rationally and takes responsibility for his or her life
    He is able to handle criticism or negative happenings well and is resilient.
    S/He is well adjusted an within self and with others.

    I do not think there is a chronological age to be mature, depends only on our will

    I'll have to agree with those who have already answered...it's definitely case-by-case and ongoing in many ways, it is certainly not tied to chronological age. I know people who are 50 years old who are still less mature than others I know at 20, I think it's mainly tied to your life experiences and what you choose to do with them and learn from them.

    the brain's frontal area, which is responsible for personality and decision-making, continues maturing until age 25.
