This graph needs a phase-shift more towards 16, with a second spike for "Most people" at 22.
how does I become happier If I become 60? well… okay, building a private library = more books = more happiness… ;D
No, you actually become Professor Emeritus
I'm 69 (till sunday) and as a NERD my books are on my PC or on my android. Takes less room and is always at hand.
"how does I become happier If I become 60?"
Spoken like a truly well-read gentleman.
At least I have something to look forward to…. eventual happiness ftw.
I'm about to turn 20 and Skyrim, BF3, MW3, Halo Anniversary, Assassins Creed Revelations, and Arkham City all come out at the same time. That's gotta be a spike, right?
I showed this to my parents (mom in her 50's, dad in his 60's) and they informed me that they must both be nerds. :)
Hell yeah, we will be LIVING IN THE FUTURE! :D
Having devoted my first few decades of my life to being very much into sports and some geek and recently almost totally given up on the sports, this certainly seems to be true. Sports started giving me very little enjoyment, but the geek stuff still gives me lots of enjoyment.
If this is true, then there are more nerds than non-nerds in the world. Studies show, and we older people can confirm, that it is easier to be happy as you get older.
I beg to differ. I am 23, in grad school, and very much a nerd and I would say I my life satisfaction is well above that of my peers.
i am eager to be 60+ so i can live out of my rent and play video games all days with my children and grand children. And for X-mas we will have a Super 2 week LAN
