A scientifically based test to judge your cognitive age. Don’t worry it’s only fifteen quick questions.
“Age is just a number”, we coined that term but what does it mean? I always thought it was a way for older people to justify being with younger people.
When using the phrase in an appropriate form, it mostly is just a number. The couple are not chronologically the same age but mental energy and maturity are on the same frequency. We all learn different things and have different lives.
Chronological age is simply the number of years you’ve existed on this planet. In some countries, it’s the day you are an embryo and in others, it’s after labor. Nonetheless, it’s still the same digit. It’s summed up by subtracting the current year from the year that you were born.
A persons cognitive age can signify your level of maturity and intellectual behaviors and knowledge. The concept of mental age was first introduced by Alfred Binet who developed the first mental age test in 1905. Binet’s theory laid the foundation for the intelligence quotient (IQ) tests that are widely used today.
It’s not unusual for somebody to have a different cognitive age versus their chronological age. It was initially thought that the average mental age of adults was sixteen!— but was later found to be about thirteen and a half years old.
Here’s an example; a person who’s forty years old may have a cognitive age of fewer than that of a thirty year old. Reversely, someone who’s thirty may have a mental age of sixty years old.
We’re all unique. Maybe now you’re a 25-year-old who likes to go to bed at 8:00 pm and rise with the dawn. It doesn’t mean you won’t ever change up your style. Or a 56-year-old who likes the nightlife, partying until dawn and sleeping until noon. It’s not to say people can’t learn. We can all learn. We can make ourselves younger and older whenever we please.
No matter your age — chronological or mental — embrace it, manipulate it, experience it, and love who you are.
Now a few Q&A and the link to the the quiz we’ve all been waiting for. Thank you psychcentral.com Gina Ryder January 2022 article

This online screening is not a diagnosis or an official evaluation of your cognitive age.
It’s a fun tool to help you discover whether or not your mental age is the same as your documented age.
Your score doesn’t necessarily reflect your mood, intelligence, or behavior.
Maintaining a younger cognitive age doesn’t mean that you’re childish or immature. Likewise, if you have an old mental age, it doesn’t mean that you’re too uptight or aged.
In general, most people young adults- mature adults will have a a score of fewer than thirty years old. If you’re concerned or have questions, consider talking more tests or speaking to your doctor.
