In no way have I read or fact checked this photo-image:
HOW FASCINATING. As I said, I have no ability to PROVE this is true. Let’s trust the good folks at http://www.IFLSCIENCE.com (http://www.iflscience.com/editors-blog/here-are-the-ages-you-peak-at-everything-throughout-lifes/)
What I appreciate about this infographic, is that it makes me THINK. Does this seem accurate? Do I like what I read?
I have actually attended a few trainings, watched a few documentaries and read some articles about the fact that the US is indeed behind most other cultures in terms of when we mandate minors to learn a second language. In US schooling, it happens in high school. HIGH SCHOOL….when there is SO MUCH data to suggest that preschool and elementary school are when this is better suited to be taught. Phew…at least I don’t feel like there is something wrong with me that I didn’t retain the Spanish and American Sign Language that I studied from ages 14-20. I was fairly well versed in both…until I stopped studying and practicing.
In regards to the life satisfaction, I disagree. I was NOT nearly as satisfied at 23; whereas, today…I am fairly satisfied. I believe in the next 50 years that will continue to improve. Age brings clarity…I am well aware that I am still classified as a “young” adult, for that I am GRATEFUL…because I trust that things will only get better. I agree with the assumption that I will be more satisfied at age 69 than I am currently, and for that I am excited!
Female attractiveness to men…I say really?! Grow up…apparently men are only attracted to 23 year old females.
Muscle strength peaking at 25 sounds about right for my experience so far…
Overall, I am happy with this post. It seems the more superficial peaks happen in the 20s, and as we age…we reach the peak in more “deep” categories. I say BRING IT ON!
