It fluctuates too wildly. :evil:


Sometimes I'm an 8 year old who shouldn't be allowed to take responsibility. Clumsy and questionably should be left alone.

Sometimes I'm a 14 or so year old who should be doing it right, but is bad at it. Can be left alone but not entirely trustworthy.

Sometimes I'm as old if not older than my own body. More reliable and functioning than anyone tend to rely on. Competent, independent.


I wish to stick to one and climb steadily from there.
Yes, even if it's to remain a trapped as an adult child. As long as it's consistent and able to move on. :x

But I really prefer to be my own age or better than that.
With all my faculties intact, with all my buried knowledge and accumulated experience accessible... To remain that way for the rest of my life and surpass myself with time.


... Instead of waking up everyday, being confused.
Asking why regress/advance all the sudden? For no apparent reason? :skull:

It's been said that people who have AS or HFA have 2/3 the mental capacity of physical age.

So if this is the case, I may have had the capacity of a fifth grader when I joined WP back in 2006.

I became 30 back in June, so if this is the case again, I am behaving like someone
who's barely into his college years.

However, I also prefer to be my own age instead of being someone who I am not.

This actually comes close to my experience, although I'm mostly stuck in the younger mindsets.

Can really vary sometimes i act like i have the mental age of a child other times i act liek i have the mental age of someone older than me it really depends. Those mental age tests rely more on stereotypes. and are't that accurate as age means different things to differet people. When i take them I usually get like 40ish

According to this, I’m 34.

I feel most like my mental age is probably around ten, not sure exactly why, but it feels most fitting. I guess able to handle myself, but shouldn’t really be given too much responsibility, absolutely still learning the ropes. Socially I guess I’m probably younger even, maybe around 6 - only recently realizing that not everyone who isn’t outright mean is necessarily a friend, social skills not very well-developed. I absolutely have plenty more mental maturing to do, but then again, in other ways it seems like I’m far more mentally mature than most people ever are.

When you assume, it makes an a** out of u and me.

I have increasing memory issues, and a tendency to forget that I forget everything. Please don't take it personally if I forget something, it probably says absolutely nothing about how important the thing is/isn’t to me.

21 on the quiz.
I haven't gotten a job after college and I feel like I'm not progressing in life so this makes a lot of sense.

That's a surprise.
I was expecting it to be more like 52. :mrgreen:

Why?
The hell if I know. :scratch:

I am not sure how to answer that because the intangible whatever it is that makes me, me, has no sense of age, as far as it is concerned I have always been what I am.

All in the mood for me.


I also came from elsewhere;
Politics related stuff do not exist the same way.
Era related stuff (mostly media-wise) also do not exist nor is known here, let alone give opinion.



Otherwise, tests have different ideas of what a mature person looks and supposed to be like.

I'd rather push for the discrepancies of one's practical functionality and personal reliability, from one's mentality and point of views.
