About This Quiz

It would be hard to get through life without hearing someone say that you are as old as you feel. You've heard it so much because it's true! Some folks can have young bodies, but make more responsible decisions that people twice their age. It all depends on something called the mental age. 

Your mental age is usually different from the age your birth certificate shows. Your mental age is the age you are inside your mind. It involves the way you think, the things you say, the decisions you make, and the way you complete these common phrases. 

As we go through this quiz, we are going to access your mental age by the way you fill in the blanks we leave you. Will you choose the traditional completion of the phrases we present, or will you choose to go your own way and use a different word? There are no right and wrong answers, and you should feel free to respond the way you see most fitting for your personality. 

If you're ready to find out if you are an old soul or if you are forever young, you've come to the right place. Have some fun with these phrases, and we'll reveal your exact mental age. Let's do it!
