We're certain you've heard the phrase "you are as old as you feel." For the purposes of the emotional age quiz, it's absolutely true. We're going to examine your behaviors and your preferences. By the time we're done, we'll be able to tell you what your emotional or mental age is in actual human years!

Our personalities develop through our nurturing and through our individual experiences. The way you handle yourself throughout your life leaves an impression on you and leads you to develop at your own pace. You could be 80 years old, but handling life with a light heart, and a lot of laughter could make you have the emotional age of someone in their 20s. Life really is how you look at it, and your emotions age along with your body. But for some of us, remaining young at heart is the most natural thing we can do. 

Throughout the quiz, we'll get to know you the very best we can. We pride ourselves on being accurate and giving very personal insights to your life. In this case, we want to know how old you really feel! Tell us if you are a big kid trapped in a grownup's body!
