If you could be one age for the rest of your life, what would it be? Maybe you flashed back to childhood, when your only responsibilities were on a playground. Or maybe you’re thinking 20s. Early 20s. Clubs. Friends. Travel. But also, Ramen. The most popular answer in this study was… 36. 36? 36. Seems random at first. But maybe it makes sense. Like the senior year of adulting. Or, as the research team calls it, established adulthood. No need to idealize youth. Phew.
