Brain age is a relative term. Just like the age of your soul, it may not be the same as your biological age.
We invite you to take this fun test to approximate the sharpness and productivity of your brain. Your job is to time yourself as you try to answer these 7 questions as quickly as possible.
7. What is the mistake these photographs have in common?
6. How many holes does this T-shirt have?
5. How would you name this tree?
4. Can you manage this one in 5 seconds?
3. Do you see a hidden baby?
2. Which line is longer?
1. Can you spot Mike Wazowski?
7. If you still can’t figure it out, just turn the photos upside down and observe the horror. The eyes and lips of both women are upside down, but our brain does not recognize that immediately. This is because it is used to seeing these features in that exact position.
6. The question does not specify which holes, which is why the answer is 8. Those 8 holes are the neckline, sleeves, and bottom of the T-shirt, as well as the holes in the middle (which were cut through both layers of the fabric).
5. If you noticed the camouflaged bird on the tree, you completed the challenge regardless of the name you picked. If you didn’t, take a closer look to find the bird.
4. The mistake is that the word “spot” appears twice.
3. If you follow the thin branches of the tree, you can see the outline of a baby in the fetal position with its feet and toes on the right of the picture, arms in the middle, and head on the left.
2. Line A is longer, of course. Did you think it was too easy to be true? By circling B on the preview image, we wanted to test your conformity. The power of conformity can be amazing: in a similar experiment, 75% of subjects agreed with the wrong statement about line length.
1. See below.
- If it took you less than 20 seconds to answer each question, your brain is quite young and can easily switch from one setting to another, approaching tasks from various angles.
- If it took you more than 20 seconds, or if you did not manage to complete all the tasks, it means that you have the brain of a mature person. It is difficult for you to detach your mind from seeing the obvious, and you do not handle change easily.
- If you answered each question correctly in under 5 seconds, your brain is as young as that of a toddler, which is an excellent result. You notice the tiniest details right away, and you adapt to new environments easily.
