Subjectivity is used in describing tone of necessity; we do it all the
time. "More mature" is indicative of something fuller, deeper, with more
fundamental and flexibility; as a man's voice is compared to a boys.
I would think that is so obvious to anyone who would reflect a bit. But
what is obvious to one is not to another. Sorry to be do vague. But just
as a request, please just ask for clarification and cut the "mumbo-jumbo"
stuff. It's not necessary.
