Re: Check your mental age
I got that too! The limit operator is just an excuse for doing something you know you can't. “It's the subject that nobody knows anything about that we can all talk about!” ― Richard Feynman “Taking a new step, uttering a new word, is what people fear most.” ― Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Crime and Punishment #5 20131214 20:46:45
Re: Check your mental ageNot one 93 year old? In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #6 20131214 20:50:55
Re: Check your mental ageWhat's your mental age, bobbym? Based on their comment at the end, you should be close to being the person with highest mental age ever.

Re: Check your mental ageThe answer was 3 so I just skipped it. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.

Re: Check your mental ageWhy not check that?

Re: Check your mental ageCheck what? In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #10 20131214 21:10:46
Re: Check your mental ageCheck the fact that your mental age is 3 by doing the above test. The limit operator is just an excuse for doing something you know you can't. “It's the subject that nobody knows anything about that we can all talk about!” ― Richard Feynman “Taking a new step, uttering a new word, is what people fear most.” ― Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Crime and Punishment #11 20131214 21:12:27
Re: Check your mental ageI did that is what the test said. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #12 20131214 21:17:18
Re: Check your mental ageOh, I thought you skipped doing the test because you thought you already knew your mental age.

Re: Check your mental ageI would say so, I am much larger than any 3 year old I have ever seen, therefore it should follow that my mental age be much larger also. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.

Re: Check your mental ageThere was a link on that page to check one's EQ. They said my EQ was 20. Is it bad to have a low EQ? 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun.

Re: Check your mental agehi
If we assume that mental age is related to size of brain, then that would make you something like a hippopotamus You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him find it within himself..........Galileo Galilei #16 20131214 22:34:20
Re: Check your mental age
Why? I would rank him as 40 something 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: Check your mental age
Hmmm, they have miniature hippopotami do they not?
40 what?
I would estimate that 97.4% of the people who have made disparaging remarks concerning me have gone totally unscathed, most have even prospered. Perhaps it was just a coincidence.

Re: Check your mental ageYes, it is really very flawed. I believe I answered all the questions correctly, Still I got 120. 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun.

Re: Check your mental ageAnd I got 170, which is very impossible.
