It is thought by some that as our age grows older and older,we are not emotional like we did previously in our young time. After having known more universal principles,knowledge ,others' thinking patterns and life expenience,we show our curiosity less and less.In some situation,we show our emotion even in callous and cruel manner.So my friend,do you believe that the older we are,the less emotional we are contrastively?

Yes, I believe. At least, we can say the older we are, the less emotional we look like. Usually you can see a kid cry on the road, how often an adult do that? We have better control of our emotions gradually as we grow up, we know where we can't express them. But it doesn't mean the older we are, the less emotions we have, it's only control!

Good analogy! Yes, I think self control is a major factor in how we react to situations.

I am older now and the emotion are all still there. Only now, I took time before I reacted. I would think it over and over before act. But believe me, the anger, the sadness, the nervousness, the jealousy are all still there.

I don't think that as we grow older and older we are less emotional. For me young or old we are still emotional, only that as we grow older we can already control our emotion, as older people are mature and wiser enough on showing their emotion. But there are situation in life that older and younger people feel the same. When we are in love with somebody. The older feels young when they are in love and like the younger, crazy about love. We are all emotional.

Perhaps you are right. When we grow older, we will have to think about many things. And we will be much more careful, thoughtful, reasonable and so on. We don't have so much passion to do whatever we like as before. We have experience to handle different situations. Since we have experienced a lot, and we don't have so many strong feelings like before. I love China

The most obvious sign of this is to see the child's behaviour,they cry and laugh whenever they want,no matter who are there and where they are.We have been taught what's good behaviour to act in different cites,and we wear the rules on us so it's not we become less emotional but the "standard behavior"human has set is the offender.

My friend told me he was very bad tempered when he was young, now he is in his late forties and he told me all the anger, impulse and negative emotion he felt in the past doesn't erupt anymore. I admire this friend for always being calm and rational. I think age does play a part though it's also mastery of oneself which takes training and practise.

Nope, I don't believed that as we grow older we became emotional. On my case, When I was younger, I am unattached and shows less emotions or no emotions at all. As I grew older we became more emotional BUT on the other hand due to experiences and principles that we had became MORE CONTROLLED IN OUR EMOTIONS. Angers can be controlled, confusions can be diverted into silence, tears can be hide and love can be express in different ways. The aspects of our lives changes and we adapt in it the more we learn the more we are in controlled, and emotions can be tamed or even hide, and can be expressed in different ways. Have a blessed day!

I believe physical growth is different from emotional growth. Physical growth is constant and predictable. On the other hand, emotional growth can vary from one person to another depending on our personal experiences and the different conditions around us. In some cases, elderly people became more emotional as they grow older.
