About This Quiz

Humans may share many similarities with each other, but one thing that tends to define us would be our age. The old saying of "age is just a number" may be true in some cases, but this number showcases someone's knowledge, growth and life experiences. But if we look beyond the outward physical age, we'll find that there's another number that defines our inner emotional spirit.

This is known as the emotional age, and in most cases, it doesn't match your physical age. For instance, someone who is 80 years old may have the emotional age of a 10-year-old, which means that they're carefree and happy about life. But on the other hand, someone who is 20 years old could have the emotional number of a 70-year-old person, which means that they're wiser than most people. So what kinds of factors shape our emotional age? Well, it has to do with how we live our lives and who we surround ourselves with. All of us are presented with similar circumstances and paths in life, but how we use those moments ultimately shapes who we become as people. So, if you're curious about how responsible and wise you really are, then it's time to take our aging quiz now!
