About This Quiz
You're only as old as you feel! Is age really just a number? Well, like most things in life there is no clear cut "correct" answer to this question. When it comes to certain things it is quite obvious that age is not just a number; it is instead a hard assertion of facts and logic. Laws apply differently to adults and children and also our bodies change as we get older. However, when it comes to your mind, the fact that "age is just a number" really does hold some weight!
You've probably seen people who are prime examples of this idea in your life. A man in his 30s who acts as if he should be heading to a retirement home any day now or an elderly woman who acts like she's in her 20s and still ready to party. How old you are mentally all comes down to how you interact with the world around you and the way that you think on a day to day basis. That's why it should be fairly easy to tell if your mind is older (or younger) than your body depending on how you answer these questions. So let's jump (or slowly wade) into this quiz right now!
