• "Keep me away from the wisdom which does not cry, the philosophy which does not laugh, and the greatness which does not bow before children." - Kahlil Gibran

    Adulthood has a nice benefits package: freedom, sex, umm... power of attorney. However, many psychologists believe that the key to emotional health is to regain our inner child.

    It is clear that everyone must learn responsibility, respect, and the finer points of morality, but it is equally clear that some aspects of childhood need never be lost and are actually very healthy: emotional honesty, existential awe, umm... the will to live.

    So why do we give it all away?

    Simply put: Teenage girls always want to seem older than they are and teenage guys want... well, teenage girls. Thus begins the rewarding race to emotional detachment and old age...

    Whether you find childishness healthy or a turn-off, this test intends to discover how childlike you are. Many thanks to The Emperor (mine) and Sigmund (Amanda's) for inspiring this test.

    Now. Off to find a cookie...
