Aging and Age Perception

Getting older? Feel like the years are flying by faster than they used to? Ever wonder why?

As you age, your perception of time changes. Every year, 1-year represents a smaller and smaller piece of your life.

To a two-year-old, 1 year is half their life. To a 10 yr old, a year is 10%; to a 20 yr old, only 5%.

Thus, for a 20 yr old to experience the age increase of a 10 yr old's year, (s)he would have to age by 10% or 2 years.

Using the Generation Gap Calculator (below), you can experiment with aging yourself like someone of a different age.
