Guess Your Age ... A game

Can We Guess Your Real Age? | Playbuzz

I played... according to the game I am......18

Of course they are off by 50+years. Maybe it is just my thinking that is a teenager

Edit add:

"Just like every other teenager, you are energetic, curious and fearless. So, were we close? Did we get it right or wrong? tell us in the comments!" Other than the teenager part, they are right.

I'm not telling them.

I got 62. I'm actually 44. I think they assume that knowing what a Werther's Original is automatically means you're old. :P

It guessed 42. I am 53. hmmmmmm.....I think this is good LOL!


I felt there weren't enough choices for some questions. Remember the one about sleeping late versus napping? I liked the best of both answers - sleeping late and napping during the day!

I got 29... which as a woman - is what I tell people I am. (Sometimes.)

I correctly identified the werther candy... so that's not it. I think the skewing factor was the comic book selection - I chose Iron Man. I figure my choices for watching movies in a theater and preferring to eat at home cancel each other out.

It said I was 18, even though I said I would describe myself as "old".

And it didn't even uncover my video game hobby! I have NO idea how it came up with 18. In real life, I am 68 and 3/4.

They guessed that I was 54 and wise, mature and calm. They think I know what I want from life, and that I've probably already achieved my goals, and now, I'm helping others in their paths.

Wrong. However I was 54 about 10 years ago
Right (well sort of) - I think I'm wise (although many would say wise ass) Mature, and I have the birth certificate to prove it. Calm, well most of the time.
Right. I have pretty much achieved my goals and I do know what I want from life.
Wrong. I have found that very few folks really want help in their paths.
