The Maturity Climb

3 years, 6 months ago
The questions…
♦ Which goat are you?(u may relate with more than one)
♦ Which would you like to be?
For clarity:
Pink: Denotes the lower stratum of the climb( i admire the fact that the artist has identified the ones with "Knows everything","takes everything personally" and "has to be right" in the right place..i see some here on HE as well..haha..but thats my opinion!
White(or cream or whatever): The transition phase in maturity ladder
Green: The been there, done that ones."Knows nothing","Assumes as little as possible","Wants to help",etc fill this stratum.
This is worth some strain on ur eyes and mind i say!:)

Very cool and interesting, thanks for sharing. I can’t identify with one single goat, but definitely a combination. I’d say I’m mostly “Wants to help” “Blames self for world” “Isn’t afraid to fail” and “Grateful.”

I find it interesting that pretty much all good theories about maturity focus on three stages, and that the stages are pretty much the same throughout the various beliefs. And how it’s like a zigzag motion, the first and second stage are kind of opposites, and the third stage is back in the middle, but way above the first two stages.

Abhi that’s a very funny poster thank you for sharing! I could pin point so many people in my, co-workers, etc, to so many of those goats :)
I think I’m “wants to help” …. but I’d like to be “isn’t afraid to fail.”

I am “Obsessed with questioning” and “Understands”.
