When do you call yourself an adult? Is it when you’re 18? 25? 35?
A recent study is saying although you’re legally an adult at 18, your brain still has more than a decade to go to develop to an adult level.
Professors at Oxford put adulthood into a magic number: 30 years old. Some people in northeast Kansas aren’t convinced by the numbers, like Leticia Bell and Mayree Gracia.
“How they grew up, and when they think they become adults, I think that’s what makes them adults. You can’t really put an age on it,” Bell said.
“There’s a lot of different factors to consider you an adult, there’s no number, just depends on your situation,” Gracia said.
There’s a quiz designed by a psychologist that tests where you fall on the “adulting” scale of 14 different areas. You can take it here.
