100 Humans: What's the Best Age to be Alive?

16 52


Most people debate on what's the best generation or year to live in, the 70s, 80s, 90s, or 20s? People will answer this question based on what year they were born.

Remember the article I posted last month, 100 Humans: What makes us attractive? That's the first episode and now the 2nd episode gets more interesting.

Let's see...


The 100 humans were grouped by the age of 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s, and 60s then each group will perform a series of tests that will answer the question, what is the best age to be alive?

First test - Which age group is best at teamwork and communication?

Each group is asked to assemble a piece of furniture. One will read instructions via walkie-talkie at a distance without looking at their teammates, one will interpret to the other members by listening to the reader and blindfolded, while the remaining members will assemble the furniture.

Results - the 60s are the winners and the last place is the 40s.

2nd test - Which age group has the best short-term memory?

Each participant will be given a list of grocery items to memorize, starting with 3 items and adding more items for the next rounds but there will be distractions.

Results - winners are 20s and 50s/40s are the losers

3rd test - Which age group excels in technology and dexterity?

There will be a representative for each age group. They will be untangling wired earphones and they will be timed.

Result - 60s in the first place and 50s in the last place

4th test - Which age group is best at creative thinking and problem-solving?

Each age group is asked to go to a room with 5 objects or clues. They will need to solve the clues to learn the required way to exit the room. The room will have 5 objects, one puzzle box, one whiteboard, one locked safe, one black light, and one turn table.

Result- 40s are in first place and 50s in the last place

On average, the answer to the question 'what is the best age to be alive? ' is...

Here's why?

By the way, here are some explanations from an expert they interviewed about the results of the tests conducted.

  • If you look at how happy or how satisfied people are throughout their lives, it looks like a U-shaped curve. People are happier in their 20s and begin to decline in their 30s, reached the bottom in their 40s, and begin to go back up in their 50s to 60s.

It's like literally saying that the 'Happiness is within U'

  • Some people may have Gerascophobia, the fear of aging. That's why some people are experiencing a midlife crisis.

  • Older people perform better because they get more sleep. sleep is a good factor in maintaining good memory, even napping.

How to maintain good memory?

  1. writing stuff down

  2. saying things out loud

  3. eat berries, help prevent memory loss

  • Intelligence

    Fluid intelligence is highest in the 20s and crystallized intelligence is accumulated knowledge and rises in the 50s /60s. That's why people in their 20s are smart on processing speed and people in their 60s are smart on practicality.

The 20s and 60s are living the best overall!


After watching and realizing a few things about my age. I do somehow agree with the results.

By the way, I am already 31 and struggling but I remembered a few things when I was still in my 20s.

  1. I used to have no fear about certain things that can happen to me.

  2. I lived like a responsible rebel person.

  3. I do things that I want, whenever I want.

  4. I don't care what other people say or think of me.

  5. I had a job and enjoyed working for a company with people I am comfortable with.

  6. I eat, buy things, and treat myself whenever I want as long as I have money and time.

  7. I enjoyed my life, being in and out of relationships. Spending time with my friends. Fooling around, drinking, vices, etc.

I can say that I was at the peak of my happiness at that age until I reached 30.

  • I got pregnant

  • I got married

  • I gave birth

  • Currently experiencing a crisis in different ways

  • Struggling to be a mother and a wife and away from my friends and family.

  • No salary-paying job

  • No freedom to do the things I want or at least used to do.

Hey, I am not saying that I regret having a kid and getting married. Most women fear having difficulty having a baby when they reach their 30s too. When I met my husband and got to know him a little better, that's when said to myself, 'Hey it's time. You can build a family with him, no more looking for Mr. Right because he is gonna be my Mr. Right and Wrong.'

Everything that I thought I would be once I have a family turned around and now having this whatever moment this is, it's taking me down. Literally. I can say that I was at my highest or happiest age in my 20s too. I am still riding in my early 30s, so who knows what could happen next. For sure, it's gonna be a rollercoaster ride in any aspect.

In conclusion, there are still things, people, and moments that make me happy but right now I can say that it is not the happiness I experienced when I was in my 20s. This is the kind of happiness that I am settling without experiencing literal pain in my chest.

Should I wait until I reach my 50s or 60s so I can be at the peak of my happiness again?

How can you say that you are already there?

A lot of people would say the 20s are the best to be alive, which i rather think that from the 50 above is the be alive.it’s because you would be able to experience and bond with your children,grandchildren and even great grandchildren 🤩🤩🤩. You’ll even be able to witness and share their happiness with them🥰🥰😊😊

I guess sa 20s kasi we don't have much of those responsibilities kaya happy go lucky lang tayo then as we reach 30s and #adulting na... ayy..we hustle hard so minsan wala ng tulog and all... it doesn't mean it's not a happy season... it's a different kind of level of happiness, so by the time na tapos na ang responsibilities sa mga anak around 50 or 60, dun na din tayo nagkakatime for ourselves but really, it's just a different season of our lives and I believe na these seasons have different purposes sa buhay natin... we must learn to embrace them para happy happy pa din hehehe

Gusto ko yung season of happiness. Pero totoo yan momsh, paramg pag 20s feeling natin nakaadjust na tayo sa life not expecting more of everything. Sa 30s parang na culture shock sa mga bagay bagay. While sa 50s to 60s parang na try or nagawa na natin lahat kaya live as happy as we can be na

I still prefer the twenties, the single life and the youth exuberance that comes with it.

we all have our own generation, own experience , own childhood our experience what makes our generation good , no matter what generation it could be, 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, or 2000 we all have our own version of happiness, we all think our generation is the best, so no matter what age, what generation, every age is the best as long as we are healthy.
