Some of the questions were "shades of gray" type of questions... (asked slightly differently to see if the responses were different..)

Oh baby.. I'm waaaaay too adult

Your Total "Adultness" Competency Score is 97%


The closer you are to 100 percent, the better. You needn't have mastered all of the separate skill areas in order to be considered an adult, but if your scores are low in one or more areas, people might question your adultness or consider you immature. Your scores in each of the 14 different skill areas are as follows:

Love: 100%
Adults are supposed to know the difference between sex and love. They’re supposed to have experienced love, or at least to have some idea about what it means to experience love. They’re supposed to know the difference between parental and romantic love, and to know that there are many different ways of expressing love.

Sex: 89%
In theory, adults know a great deal about contraception, homosexuality, how to please a partner, and how to make babies. They’re supposed to know that condoms often fail, for example, and that masturbation is common among both males and females (somewhat less so among females).

Leadership: 100%
Adults are supposed to know about leaders and, to some extent, to be able to act as leaders—as leaders of other adults, of children, or at least of pets. They’re supposed to know that leaders must sometimes make tough decisions, that leaders are in some sense servants of their followers, and that leaders almost always must report to other leaders higher up a chain of command. Adults are also supposed to be somewhat brave—at least in defending their loved ones or in killing harmless insects—and they’re supposed to be able to defend their rights.

Problem Solving: 89%
Adults are supposed to be able to solve a wide variety of problems—financial, work-related, plumbing-related, and personal—and they’re supposed to know where to go for help when they need it. They’re also supposed to know the difference between right and wrong and to be cognizant of the consequences of their actions. They’re supposed to be able to think independently and even to be aware of their own faulty beliefs.

Physical Abilities: 100%
Adults, or at least healthy adults, are supposed to be physically self-sufficient. We make allowances when people are sick or injured. The infirmities of old age are handled variously: when elderly people become weak, incontinent, or otherwise impaired, we often revert to treating them like children, even though, in some sense, we still recognize the elderly as “adults.” In general, adults are supposed to be physically strong, to have intact senses, to be able to climb stairs without assistance, and so on. We expect far less of children.

Verbal and Math Skills: 100%
Adults in our society are supposed to have mastered the proverbial Three R’s (reading, ‘riting, and ‘rithmetic), and they’re supposed to know basic things like the days of the week, the number of days of the year, the number of days in February (even in leap years), the number of hours in a day, and so on.

Interpersonal Skills: 100%
Adults are supposed to know how to converse with, show respect for, forgive, apologize to, get along with, and assist other people. With children, we give basic reminders like “Remember to share,” but adults are supposed to have mastered such lessons in basic civility. Adults are also supposed to be honest in their dealings with other people, and they’re supposed to have the good sense to follow the instructions of police officers—in other words to recognize that people play different roles in society.

Handling Responsibility: 100%
Adults are supposed to be able to accept blame for their wrongdoing. They’re supposed to be able to make commitments and then honor them. When they begin tasks worthy of completion, they’re supposed to persist in completing them.

Managing High-Risk Behaviors: 100%
We try to keep children away from cigarettes, drugs, alcohol, guns, and cars, because, presumably, they’ll damage themselves or others if they have access to such things. Adults, on the other hand, are supposed to be ready to handle risky items and activities responsibly. Among other things, they’re supposed to know that driving under the influence of alcohol is extremely dangerous, that the heavier one is the more alcohol one can tolerate without ill effect, that mixing alcohol with certain drugs can be fatal, that smoking can ruin one’s health, that the safe use of guns involves considerable skill, that improper use of prescription medication is dangerous, and so on.

Managing Work and Money: 100%
Adults are supposed to be able to get and keep jobs. They’re supposed to know that it’s important to be on time, that “a job worth doing is worth doing well,” that we’re supposed to persevere when the going gets tough, and that it’s important to prioritize and complete the most important tasks first. Adults are supposed to know how to spend money wisely, how to save, how to invest for the future, how to plan for emergencies, how to manage debts, how to write checks, and how to balance a checkbook.

Education: 100%
Adults are supposed to have obtained at least a basic education, and they’re supposed to appreciate the value of education. They’re also supposed to know basic education laws—for example, that young people are required to attend school until at least age sixteen or so (depending on one’s state of residency).

Personal Care: 100%
Adults, unlike children, are supposed to practice basic hygiene, to comb their hair, to wear clean clothes, and so on. They’re also supposed to eat three nutritionally-balanced meals a day, to avoid between-meal snacks, to brush and floss their teeth, to get a good night’s sleep, to maintain a healthful weight, and to avoid too much salt or sugar or fat in their diets. They’re also supposed to be able to recognize a variety of medical and psychological problems—signs of cancer, asthma, sleep apnea, depression, bipolar disorder, and so on—and to know when and where to get help if they or their loved ones need it.

Self Management: 100%
Adults are supposed to be able to manage their own behavior—to use an alarm clock to make sure they awaken on time, to keep an appointment book to make sure they know why they set their alarm clock, to keep a list of things to do so they know what they’re supposed to pick up on the way back from the appointment, and so on. They’re also supposed to know basic techniques of “self-control”—counting to ten, for example, as a way of preventing their anger from getting out of hand.

Citizenship: 78%
Finally, adults are supposed to know some basic things about government and about how to be good citizens. They’re supposed to register to vote and to participate in elections, to pay taxes, to serve on juries, and so on, and they’re supposed to know most basic laws and to obey them.
