Keep in mind his mental age as well as my mental age. Expierce in life, remember egyptian men are developed mentally older than western men age difference in my opinion. Plus yes definitely depends on where the both you are in your life at the time as well. With that being said. Who are we to say what is a persons true age anyway. Mental age is a concept related to intelligence. It looks at how a specific child, at a specific age—usually today, now—performs intellectually, compared to average intellectual performance for that physical age, measured in years. The physical age of the child is compared to the intellectual performance of the child, based on performance in tests and live assessments by a psychologist. Scores achieved by the child in question are compared to scores in the middle of a bell curve for children of the same age [1]

However, mental age varies according to what kind of intelligence is measured. A child's intellectual age can be average for his physical age but the same child's emotional intelligence can be immature for his physical age. In this psychologists often remark girls are more emotionally mature than boys in the tween years. Also a six-year-old child intellectually gifted in Piaget terms, can remain a three-year-old child in terms of emotional maturity.[2] Mental age was once considered a controversial concept.[3]
