About This Quiz

Growing up isn't the easiest thing in the world. The older you get, the more things you are expected to intrinsically know how to do to be considered a real adult. We're not saying it wasn't a bummer when you were still young enough that people told you what to do all of the time, but at least you weren't expected to have a lot of life skills. 

When you're young, you can count on the fact that someone is probably going to make your dinner and do your laundry (at least most of the time.) If you get a flat tire, a family member might be the one changing it. The point is, you aren't going to have the same life skills when you are 18 as you will when you reach the ripe old age of 50. Learning those skills is part of growing up.

You might learn a lot in school, but there are certain things you only learn through lived experience.  Answer a few relatively painless questions in this quiz, and we'll be able to tell by the number of life skills that you have whether you're still a rookie at the game of life or a grizzled veteran. If you do well, you might even be able to put this on your resume!
