Whenever their country says so. E.g. if they're a United States Citizen, at the age of 18

I guess we're adult's once we start having some responsibilities i mean, i turned 19 but i still dont see myself as an adult yet... Even tho my parents keeps saying "you're an adult now" etc... but for me i'm still just a kid. And the only thing i focus on now is school and friends, i'm moving to Japan soon also so i might become an adult once i get away from my parents and starts living by myself, alone... well, i'm gonna stop there... have a nice day :3

I don't consider anyone adults. Well not till i get to know them.

Many people I know of adult age are... to put it bluntly idiots who should never be allowed into the real world. Especially when you see those drunken yobs walking through town clearly drunk in the middle of the day.

On the other side of the coin there are people who would have been fine being left along from the age of 13 / 14. It just seems to vary by person. Even people who act like complete idiots outside can be extremely responsible so its hard to say.

To me an adult is someone who is 21, has a true mature personality, behaves like a man or woman, is not irresponsible and has a job to provide for his or her family. A person who acts like they're still in their school age years to me is not an adult just yet; welcome to the real world son or mam. lol A young adult behaving like a man or woman is almost there, yet hasn't quite reached that level just yet.

When they reach legal age. I still think I'm a kid.

The choices you make. There's always a choice and there's always a reaction.
Example:

1) There's a kid crying, and absolutely no one around, not even cameras; you...

a) Punch the kid and run away
b) Ignore it and move elsewhere
c) Whine about it


2) Your boyfriend/girlfriend dumped you; you...

a) Kill him/her
b) Forget about him/her and get a new
c) Cry me a river


3) You don't like living with your family, therefore you...

a) Become a psychopath
b) Concentrate on studies/find a job
c) Become emo

And yet the US government doesn't let people legally consume alcohol until the age of 21. So do they really consider 18-year-olds as adults? You'd think that adults by definition would be able to freely express their drinking preferences.

US government, or your state's government? Always thought that one of the advantages of living in the US was that each state's law differentiates, which means if you disagree with your government, you can move elsewhere without the need of a passport.

I don't really, it depends on them. For me I'm becoming a young adult for myself. I'm growing up and understand more about life, also between right and wrong.
