About This Quiz
Thomas Jefferson once said "I like the dreams of the future better than the history of the past" and it was a pretty relatable statement. History is full of disappointment, sadness, despair, and terrible fashion choices. Dreams are full of unicorns and social awkwardness with no real-world consequences. Plus things like unicorns and whatnot. It's really hard to go wrong with dreams. But do they have any consistency? Sure, you may have a recurring dream but will you always have that dream? What are your grandparents dreaming about? Or those young kids with their Instagrams and their YouTubes? Are dreams as different as clothing and musical tastes between generations? You better believe they are!
Your dreams are just a doorway to the inner workings of your mind, so there's no doubt that a dream can be very personal and reveal a lot about the dreamer. We're so confident about this that we're willing to bet we can guess exactly how old you are based on nothing more than some simple knowledge of what you dream about. Answer a few questions, let us know what dreams bubble up in your head night after night, and in no time we'll have your age pegged. Take the quiz and see!
