About This Quiz

A lot of people say things like "Age is just a number" or "You're only as old as you feel." How much truth is there in these statements? Are a lot of us a different age physically than we are mentally? 

We've all seen this play out before when you sit and think about it. You might know someone who is well into their 70s, yet they act like a teenager, always having fun and clowning around. On the other hand, sometimes you'll see someone in their 40s act as though they're headed for the retirement home.

This is true when it comes to younger people, too. Have you ever met an 18-year-old who is incredibly mature, studies hard, doesn't party and is very goal-oriented? On the flip side, how many times have you seen people well into their 30s act like they're in college, playing video games at all hours of the night and partying without a care in the world?

It's easy to tell how old you are in real life. We just have to look at your driver's license for that answer. But how old are you mentally? This quiz will give you the perspective you've been looking for!
