And apparently those of us over 26 don’t think so good (I’m 31).
A seven-year study at the University of Virginia found that our mental abilities peak at 22. And by the time we’re 27, brain speed, reasoning and visual puzzle-solving ability are all in decline. Fortunately, memory doesn’t decline until 37 so I can still find my keys… to my Ford Model T.
As you can probably tell I don’t put a lot of stock in this study, and not just because it affects me. Even this so-called study found that accumulated knowledge like vocabulary & general information increased until age 60.
Did these geniuses ever think that maybe declines in memory and brain speed could be from having that much more information to sift through?
Now stop wasting my time scientists and get to work on a brain defragger.
