"?? was your assumption right, then?

I have to put prominence on the fact that I know Jacob could have accentuated his maturity levels (if there is any to begin with). However, this point [his immaturity] has been excused by the time frame which he had to work with. If that’s the case, then it’s not brain development that affected his actions, rather his act, think later trait that’s the driving force to his rather incoherent for lack of better words actions.
What leads me to think so is that Jacob is fully and coherently aware of his actions, and if he’s pleased with what he’s achieved, he’d do it again if he can.
And I have to disagree, first - what particular age group are assuming exhibit the “naïve and bratty” traits? - believe it or not, my half a$$ed 9th grade English teacher was a real brat - downright idiotic and prejudiced and strict (so I am biased but still true) whereas I know my mom sometimes can be naïve too and my cousin…so those traits are not necessarily exhibited by only one age group.
And also, lets say that just because of his age he’s was acting bratty - his actions don’t necessarily mean that they should be approved and excused. Maybe understandable. like you see those 12 year old noobs on the internet and they talk shoot about everything and anything and they are so...- they are so bratty and young - i am not going to say "you're excused cos your young" crap. personally I have more
