How Old Are You?

I was asked to play this game by a friend and despite my cynicism, I did and got this message at the end of the game.


You really act like a seventy-five year old! You’ve lived long enough to want to continue the routine as is. The joy you feel in knowing that you love and can take pleasure in almost every aspect of your life is overwhelming. You may have faced adversity at some point, and are only alive because you’ve overcome it. Health is a top priority for you. Everyday you do what you can to keep yourself like a well-oiled machine. Your motto is probably something like: “I’m gonna keep on keepin’ on!”

I am 72. Close enough but I had a head start in terms of being independent and that should account for the three years difference. I am impressed with this method.

Try it. You may find it as interesting as I did!

    I don’t “find it as interesting” as you did, my dear Ramana. Whilst your 75 reading made me smile my own leaves a lot to be desired. According to the test I am fifty. Where I went wrong I don’t know.

    I then resat the test and this time – being much harder on myself digging the depth of my soul and aspirations – I am 13. That’s more like it. THIRTEEN, Ramana! I qualify as a child bride.

    Hugs and hisses,

  4. Took the test. Said I behave like a 98 year old, even though I am physically 55! Made me feel great! Loved the test. Shared it with a few friends..

    like raj. i’m also 98.
    the number seemed a little disconcerting at first glance. NINETYeight!!!
    then i read it.
    and it pretty well nailed me.

    Apparently I’m a 13 year old. No idea what produced that result. Maybe something to do with preferring world peace to lots of money.

    Well, until I read the comments I thought everyone would be 75. Not a bad description…but I’m 73. Super mature, right? Cautious, too, because I got so many pop-ups on the site that I immediately went into my preferences and cleared all the recent cookies. I’m old enough…

  8. OK, tammy convinced me to take it and it was a waste of time. 🙂 I’m still 75 and have the same description as Ramana.

    Hi Rummy,

    Oh my G-d….I did the test and here’s the result:

    “You really act like a fifty year old! One of the things you pride yourself on is your knowledge of yourself. With absolute certainty, you know your likes and dislikes, what floats your boat and what doesn’t. However, be cautious that you don’t try to avoid new things because they change your routine. Career-wise, you’re a complete pro, the best of the best. You know the in’s and out’s of your business so well, you may own it!”

    I’m 38, at least physically cause mentally I appear to be much older.
    Your test result is superb, my friend.

    I turned out a bit younger than my real age and had fun with the test. Another good suggestion from you! And I am reading Missing Out. Am I getting more clever? I am not sure, but I enjoy the book and its philosophical wisdom.

    • Missing Out certainly is a very interesting book and opens one’s mind to its own peccadilloes! I am glad that you find it so too. One of these days, I intend sitting quietly somewhere to compile a whole lot of quotes from it to use in my blog posts.
