Turns Out There Are Things We’re the Best At, Depending on Our Age
It turns out that there is the perfect age to get married, to develop your body, to make lots of money, and even to learn a new language. People also succeed best of all with playing chess and remembering faces at a certain period in their life.
Bright Side found out what people are best at from 7 to 48 years old. This may be a good opportunity to find a hobby or business that works best for you right now.
Learning a new language — 7 years old
People who start learning their second language before 10 years old have a better chance of speaking it fluently, according to a study. It’s unknown why the human brain struggles to learn a language in adulthood. That being said, 17 or 18 years old is considered to be the last critical period for learning a new language.
Life satisfaction — 23 years old
A survey of 23,000 people in Germany found that current life satisfaction reaches its peak around ages 23 and 69. If you are already over 23 years old, then there is no reason to be sad — just wait for the second peak and everything will be OK again. Of course, we’re being cheeky here! First of all, the joy in our lives depends on our attitude toward the things that happen to us.
Women are most attractive — 23 years old
According to the book Dataclysm, men find women in their early 20s most attractive. Even as the men got older, their preference for 20-something women seemed to stay the same. Yes, tastes may vary, but this makes it possible to identify certain patterns.
Muscle strength — 25 years old
Often, people tend to justify their laziness with made up reasons. For example, people who are still young do not play sports, because “it’s too late.” But the study claims that the peak of muscle strength doesn’t even begin until 25 years old and lasts for about a decade. For older people, there is also good news. Physical activity decreases pretty slowly, and moderate exercise is considered useful at any age.
Finding a partner for marriage — 26 years old
Mathematicians say that the best time to make a decision is when you’ve looked at 37% of those options. It’s easy to caculate that if you are looking for a partner between the ages of 18 and 40, then the best decision should be made at 26 years old.
This can be an excellent argument for single people who are about 20 and upset about not having relationships — you still have a lot of time!
Playing chess — 31 years old
If you are not a grandmaster, then never play chess for money with people who are 31 years old. The study says that it’s at this age that a person has the best developed abilities for this game. But, of course, with constant training, you can defeat any opponent!
Remembering faces — 32 years old
If chess is too boring for you, don’t be sad, we have another idea: You could always work for the secret service. A study says that our best time for remembering faces is after the age of 30.
Men have awesome salaries — 48 years old
How old are you now? What do you do best of all at the moment?
