At What Age Do We Peak?

May 29, 2023

Of course, this is a very general question. In the U.S., we tend to answer based on our body or physical health and usually revolving around our age.

But, as this graphic shows, peaking happens throughout our entire life. And good for us that a lot of it happens at 50 or after—arithmetic skills (50), understanding people’s emotions (51), life satisfaction (69 and also 23), vocabulary (71), happiness with your body (74), and psychological well-being (82). This last point is particularly true during the pandemic (see the second graphic below).

I need to remind my Spanish teacher that my “learning a new language” skills peaked at age 7. And the next time I see you and don’t seem to remember your name, just remember that peaked at 22.
