What'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.

Check the fact that your mental age is 3 by doing the above test.

Oh, I thought you skipped doing the test because you thought you already knew your mental age.

Hm, if you really got that answer, which I doubt, something is wrong with the test.

I 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.

There 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?

If we assume that mental age is related to size of brain, then that would make you something like a hippopotamus

Sorry for that but, it may interest you to know, the **gods of bobbym protection** punished me straight away. As I typed that I spilt tea over my laptop.

Hmmm, they have miniature hippopotami do they not?

Look how small this one is,

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.

Hi Agnishom

Have you tried the IQ test. It seems to be very flawed.

Yes, it is really very flawed. I believe I answered all the questions correctly, Still I got 120.

40 something is your mental age, bobbym. Or something less than 60
