About This Quiz

Just because your birth certificate labels you a certain age, it does not mean your soul matches it. If you are an old soul or a child at heart, you know this all too well. If you have a young soul, you are attracted to adventure. No matter what age you actually are, you will always remain playful, light-hearted, and goofy, taking advantage of any change you get to make a joke or take the edge off. Responsibilities are the last thing on your mind as you walk through life in wonder and awe.

Youthful souls don't age, at least on the inside, which is quite the opposite to old souls, who feel they have been on the planet for much longer than they actually have. You may be a 15-year-old or a 50-year-old and experience life in the same way. Staying up late and leading a busy life is the opposite of what you find fulfilling. Instead, you would like to spend your days drinking your favorite hot beverage, curled up on the couch with a good book, and surrounded by those you love. 

There's no right or wrong way to be! Tell us a little bit about yourself and see if we can guess the true age of your soul!
