>Cognitive sharpness peaks at 18-19 stagnates for a couple years then begins to decline around 23. Same for physical peak. This is why there's no such thing as chess grandmasters still competing at 35 and most Olympians retire before they even hit mid 20s.
>All antiaging practices are recommending to begin at 25 because of how rapidly everyone begins to age. In reality you should have begun this practice well before any of the signs start to show. You are officially old at this point in every scientifically measurable way as you have begun your physical and mental decline.

    >”At any given age, you’re getting better at some things, you’re getting worse at some other things, and you’re at a plateau at some other things. There’s probably not one age at which you’re peak on most things, much less all of them,” says Joshua Hartshorne, a postdoc in MIT’s Department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences and one of the paper’s authors.

      This, frontal cortex fully develops around the age of 30.

      I used to be a "gifted child" and was three years ahead of my grade level. I would help my friends with their college level homework after I dropped out of high school. I was also miserable as fuck during those years and ended up on disability for mental health problems straight out of school. 13 years of doing nothing but pursuing mindless entertainment since then has caused such degree of brain rot I now have an IQ of 97 and can't learn now things - I must have looked up the words 'histrionic' and 'axiomatic' in a dictionary 20 times by now, but still can't remember their meaning. And I feel happier than ever before despite everything about my life being objectively worse than when I was 20.

      Take the retard pill, anons. It's simple: If you don't use it, lose it - be it your muscles, your stamina or your brain.

      Bit this is also true, so the age is just about potential.

    Cope, if you had a 135 IQ at 20, then having a 130 IQ at 40 (AND more life experience) won't stop you from success. If you had a room temp IQ to begin with then it never began

    Think about what you're saying, anon.

    I know what the literature says, but, like, so what? You know what they do to measure this stuff, right? It's all just dumb parlour tricks, you need experience as well.

    The 30s, 40s, and 50s genuinely are the peak in terms of doing productive work.

      Also, researchers are important, but also unreliable, you need to know how to read the research they produce.

      Instead of relying on your own interpretation of the research, try to find someone who has a stake in what's actually true or false and go by their assumptions. In this case, look into health insurance companies.

      Yeah.

      But, just for the record, Einstein peaked at the start of the 20th century, at least, that's when he did his most important work; his twenties and thirties.
