Take Our Picture Test To Determine Your Mental Age

As the old saying goes, "You're only as old as you feel." Some people are born into this world with an old head on their shoulders, while others still behave like kindergartners even once they've hit retirement age.  

In psychology, differentiations are made between a person's biological age and their mental age. In 1905, French psychologist Alfred Binet developed a test to determine the "intelligence age" of children. The testing involved having children take on various tasks to see which mental skills they had already developed.


As most of us don't have the time to go through the many pages of testing, we've come up with this simple picture test for you to determine your mental age.
