About This Quiz

Have you ever been told that you need to act your age? If you have, the chances are high that you have an intellectual age that's different from your actual age. Once we get to know you in this quiz, we'll be able to guess if you are younger or older than your calendar years. Do you think we can get it right? 

So much of our intellectual age depends on the experiences we've had in life, the education we've had and the way we live our lives. After you answer our questions, we'll have a good idea of the age you spend your days acting like. For this quiz, you can disregard your actual age, because we're going to figure out how old your brain says you are. 

As we think our way through this quiz, the age markers you have reached and the ones you are still reaching for will become clear to us. From there, we'll analyze your responses against the traits of a number of age groups. After you've answered our questions, we'll let you know if you act older than you really are or if you will be forever young at heart. Can we get it right, or will we need to count again?
