I left all my answers and what not because why not.

Instructions
Circle the points next to the correct answer to each question. At the end you will tally a net score. Be completely honest with yourself. Your age prediction is based on your lifestyle habits, should you continue those habits for life. Using this questionnaire, you will learn about factors that you can modify or implement that can add years and health to your life. The scoring system is provided at the end of the questionnaire. Please note that the questionnaire is not a precise scientific instrument, but rather an estimated life expectancy analysis according to the impact of lifestyle factors on health and longevity.

Net score for all questions: 9

II. How To Score
To estimate the total number of years that you will live, (a) determine a net score by totaling the results from all 46 questions, (b) obtain an age change score by multiplying the net score by the age correction factor given below, and (c) add or subtract this number from your base life expectancy age (73 for men and 80 for women—the current life expectancies in the United States). For example, if you are a 20-year-old male and the net score from the answers to all questions was –16, your estimated life expectancy would be 68.2 years (age change score = –16 × .3 = –4.8, life expectancy = 73 – 4.8 = 68.2).

You can also determine your real physiological age by subtracting a positive age-change score or adding a negative age-change score to your current chronological (calendar) age. For instance, in the previous example, the real physiological age would be 24.8 years (20 + 4.8). If the age change score had been +4.8, the real physiological age would have been 16.2 years. Thus, a healthy lifestyle will always make your physiological age younger than your chronological age. Your real physiological age will have much greater significance in middle and older age, when it is not uncommon to see real-age reductions of 10 to 25 years in people who lead healthy lifestyles. Thus a 50-year-old person could easily have a real physiological age of 30.


Age Correction Factor (ACF)*
Age ACF
***8804;30 .3
31–40 .4
41–50 .5
51–60 .6
61–70 .6
71–80 .5
81–90 .4
***8805;91 .3
*Adapted from: M. F. Roizen, RealAge, New York: Cliff Street Books, 1999.

Age Change Score (ACS) = 9 (net score) × .3 (ACF) = 2.7
Life expectancy
Men = 73 ± 2.7 (ACS) = 75.7 years
Women = 80 ± (ACS) = years
Real physiological age**
Men = 21.25 (your age) ± 2.7 (ACS) = 18.55 years
Women = (your age) ± (ACS) = years
