What's Your Mental Age?


You know how many candles were on your last birthday cake, but does your actual age match your mental age? For some of us, we reach a certain point in life, and we stay the same age. Although our bodies might show signs of aging, our minds can remain forever young. If you've ever been told that you're an old soul, you're probably mentally younger than most people your age. On the other hand, being told that you're young at heart might mean that your mind is preserved in a different decade than your body. After you take this quiz, we'll be able to let you know how old you are mentally. Are you as old and wise as you think you are, or does your brain have a little catching up to do? Answer each question honestly, and we'll tell you how old you are according to your mental age. Let's get started!

Did you know?

18 doesn't mean adulthood

If you think about it, it's rather strange that 18 is considered the legal adult age. Why? Well, it's because our brains don't stop developing until years later. In fact, experts have shown that the human brain doesn't stop forming or growing until you're well into your 20s. While it can vary from person to person and gender to gender, brain development happens slower than society seems to believe. While your brain will never develop as much later in life than it does when you're born, constant changes are always taking place. Of course, your environment and experiences factor into the picture, too. The more you experience, the more your brain changes. Although people mature emotionally at different rates, your life experience can stifle or encourage your brain's development. Brains are fascinating organs, and they are responsible for everything in your world — including your personality and your mental age!

How to Play?

Our personality quizzes are set up a little differently than your basic trivia quiz, but you’ve probably seen their kind around. Rather than having to choose the right answer from a list of multiple choice options, in this case, there is no “right answer”! (Two plus two will always be four, but every Golden Girls character is equally awesome.)

So, stop stressing. Just click on the answer that suits you best, and enjoy the ride. These quizzes are just for fun but who knows – you might just learn something about yourself along the way!
