One Hundred and Ninety Seventh Question

Which would you choose:
To have the wisdom of adulthood at a young age,
or to have the energy and mindset of a child at an elderly age?

    I'd much prefer the latter (energy/youthful mind at an older age).

    I think having adult-like wisdom at a young age would kill the purpose of childhood.

    Can I say right where I'm at....OLD definitely in body but not in spirit you know what maybe not even that OLD...more inquisitive now than ever.

    But to answer your question the latter energy/youthful mind at an older age..

    I'd take energy in my old age. In fact, I'd take energy right now at 33. Damn, I'm tired!

    The second...have the energy and mindset of a child at an elderly age. Learning through life is how you become the person you are today, so I wouldn't want the wisdom at a young age.

    the latter...
    not knowing while young makes being young so much fun...and helps develop character

    The latter. I would probably be a very jaded and cynical child if the former applied.

    Energy and mindset forever. I'll never grow up!

    i'll take the latter...i grew up way too fast and knew way too much at a young age...although all that insight will come in handy in my old age...

    peace...

    Energy and mindset of a child at an older age, as long as it wasn't the mindset due to Alzheimer's! :)

    definately the latter...

    You've lured me out of lurkdom with this one. Definitely, absolutely the latter. But I'm kinda assuming that the wisdom would ALSO come with the age. Like Sassy said - I wouldn't necessarily want the energy & youthful mind that comes with alzheimers.

    I'd go for wisdom at an early age.
    Because then school would have been a lot more fun. It's one of those things you think back on... in a given situation, if you knew what you do now, you could have totally handled the situation.... I mean in a humorous way :D
    Have a nice one.

    2nd, too!

    Yeah, the latter. But I think I already possess the mindset of a child already! hahaha!

    I wouldn't have minded having a little more wisdom during my earlier years, to save wincing at memories of those times. However, energy in my old age would probably make a huge difference and so I'll go for that.

    yeah the energy.

    I'd rather have the wisdom. I'm all about working smart and not hard. :)
