I think it means not knowing how to properly deal with all of your emotions.

Uhh... I think it's when someone doesn't know how to act/behave when they are facing a situation they don't understand. I'm not sure.. i think i'm talking crap.

Yuppers. Its being out of touch with age appropriate emotional responses, or responding with a lack of emotional depth comparable to someone of the same age.

Where did you first hear the term, and do you think you are emotionally underdeveloped?

It is when your actions do not coincide with your age. When you do not understand that you should feel a certain way or that it is inappropriate to feel a certain way at a certain time. It is when you are unable to act as your maturity level tells you to.

A classmate of mine said that to me once

"you look 18 but you have a mind of a 5 year old"

There's a thing called "emotional intelligence." If you lack knowledge or understanding of emotion, then you might be considered "emotionally immature" for your age.

I have a friend (19) that has the emotional depth of a 13 year-old.

emotionally underdeveloped means, you dont know how to deal with certain situations due to lack of experience, in accordance with your age. For example, if someone who was 27 had have several boyfriends, whereas someone else never had one by that age they would be underdeveloped emotionally in that area. Maybe finding it more difficult to understand the other as they not gone through the feelings and events of a relationship.

You can be emotionally underdeveloped in many different areas though, it hasnt got anything to do with being mature or immature.

The best thing to do is not focus on this problem and think it is an issue with you. The worse thing you can do while having SA is overanalyze EVERYTHING. You will make yourself sick, driving yourself to believe you are more and more inadequate.

Personally I dont know what it means nor do I care. I dont have enough care to even bother cause I know it serves no helpful purpose.
