What maturity one has to grow to work as a manager?

- I have a doubt: is there anything which hints other (working managers) that somebody though lacks managerial degree can able to do managerial jobs? On other way, which factors can jeopardize somebody's chances to get opportunity on managerial tasks? To exemplify my doubt I would illustrate I have already five years of experiences in industry and till now I have not got any offer to work in managerial role. However, few of my colleagues who belong to same experience level or less have experienced some kind of managerial tasks (mostly associate/module handling). Even I have not got any promotion in these five years. I reckon that lacing of some quality, probably, is hampering my chances to secure positive growth. In that case I should try to change my style of working, way of interaction and tete-a-tete behavior radically. But before that I want to learn expectable parameters so that I can judge myself based on available parameters at hand. Here are few things I would like to share: - I am not very extrovert but always I try to interact with people as far as I can do. Therefore I mostly confine myself within my project vicinity (4-5 people). Possibly I do not know how to start conversation with unknown colleague or superior. - I like to read lot many journals, books and papers so, most of the time, after work, I engage myself in some kind of reading at office and hence I lack time to interact with people. - I try to complete my work diligently and never had I receive any escalation due to my work. Even I earned accolades for my technical work. - I believe I lack authoritative skills. I do not know how to drive people to do some task - When I have to be polite, when rude and when amicable. Do you think that above natures can easily be identified from somebody's trait? I would definitely ask you to provide some assistance so that I go through those guidelines and try to apply them in small scale.
