Here’s one. Be careful not to waste your whole afternoon.
This quick online test claims to measure the age of your brain. Is it younger than the age of your body? The same age? Older?
The instructions on the site are in Chinese, but here they are in English:
- Click Start.
- Wait for the countdown to finish. 3, 2, 1…
- Numbers will appear scattered on the screen. Memorize them.
- Blank circles will replace the numbers. Click the blank circles in numerical order, lowest to highest, based on what you’ve committed to memory.
- Repeat this sequence ten times until the game ends.
At the end of the game, the age of your brain will be calculated.
My first try put my brain at 29 years old. Then I did it again and shaved off five years. 24. I figure with a little practice, I could probably get myself to believe in Santa Claus by the weekend.
