How old are you?

In our parallel text Bible study on Sunday, I mentioned feeling younger than my chronological age. Johanna's response about accepting one's age triggered a realization in me: However I feel at X age is how a person of X age feels. I think perhaps we experience age dissonance because we have built an idea in our mind that people of a certain age should have attained to a high level of wisdom and maturity. Then we arrive at that age and ... .

What age do you feel? Why? How do you think a person of your real age "should" feel? And why?
