About This Quiz

You might have heard about that 69-year-old Dutch man who petitioned to the government to knock 20 years off his legal age. Emile Ratelband claimed to possess the body of a younger man and argued that he should be recognized as such. Spoiler alert: it didn't work. The court ruled against his case in 2018 and Ratelband remained 69, both legally and on Tinder, where he says he is disadvantaged due to ageism. 

While most of us wouldn't go so far as to petition to change our ages, most people walk around feeling at least a little older or younger than their birth certificate states. Different life experiences and personalities make each individual's inner world completely unique, which means we all develop at our own rate. Some people skip straight to adulthood during childhood and then circle back later on. Others are simply born with the spirit of wise, elderly folks. 

Regardless of what you see in the mirror or on your ID card, right now you could be in any psychological stage of life. You're only as young as you feel, as the saying goes. So, where are you? How young or old are you, deep inside? Grab a popsicle or a cup of coffee, and let's get started!
