About This Quiz

Age is just a number; however, there are certain traits and behaviors associated with different ages. At different points in your life, you are expected to behave in a socially acceptable way, whatever that means. Kids are given more leeway when it comes to matters of maturity, so their pranks are more likely to get written off as mostly harmless as long as no one gets hurt. 

People in their teens and 20s are expected to prepare themselves for the job market and still find time to have a social life. After a person's 20s, society expects them to find a way to successfully juggle a career and family, while at the same time acknowledging that it is nearly impossible to do everything well. Once someone reaches their 70s, it's assumed that they are preparing for retirement and are thinking about that trip they hope they've saved enough to afford. 

Does your mental age match your physical age? Is it time to reassess your outlook on life? Will you discover that mentally you're not as old as you thought you were? Scroll down to take this quiz, so that you can know once and for all how others perceive your mental age!
