A new quiz has taken over TikTok which claims to reveal what your mental age is and it's going viral as people share their answers. Here is how to participate in the quiz yourself.

Scrolling on your For You page, you may have recently noticed people sharing their real age, alongside their mental age which they have discovered.

Much like previous viral quizzes such as the human feeling test, this mental age quiz is multiple-choice with people answering what kind of characteristics they portray and the sort of decisions they make and it supposedly uses artificial intelligence to calculate this answer.
