How Old Does A G@Ger Have To Be For You To Take Their Opinion Seriously?

Just a bit curious. I notice there are a lot of people on here younger the 18 but then there are also those that are in their 40's, 50's, and 60's. I just read a few questions under various topics and the age range was pretty broad. So how seriously do you take young/old G@Ger's response, question, or myTake? Does their age dictate whether or not you respect their opinion? It can be to your question or someone else's, doesn't matter.

  • I don't really consider age as relevant in what I think about someone's opinion. Perspectives change with age and experience, but that doesn't invalidate the viewpoints of young people. My ten year old nephew can be at the same time both deep and whimsical, with a fresh, long-forgotten take on things. And my views and experiences at my age are likely quite different than those of my parents at this age, as theirs likely was from those of their own parents. And a lot of young people seem to dismiss the opinions of older people, but there is a lot of wisdom to be gained from those who have seen so much of life. I have a relative who is in his 90's but still drives, is sharp and witty, and keeps up on current events. He still has a keen interest in science and nature - he worked part time until just a few years ago and has several patents.

    I think those who dismiss the thoughts of others because they are "too young/old" are doing themselves a disservice, missing out on the benefit of the perspective of others.

  • I don't care who is advising. Some teens know that they're talking about. It's the questions from older users that I don't take seriously. Either some of the users are lying about their age, or they are just really stupid. On another site, I saw a user claim she was 25 and she asked if you had to have sex to be able to wear tampons. Either she was trolling, she was underage, or she was just really stupid. She claimed she was still a virgin, but she could never insert tampons, and she thought that maybe sex would loosen things up a bit. LMAO. Questions like that I can't seriously, so I trolled her back.

  • Age doesn't matter, I appreciate honest, valid opinions. It just so happens that most under-18s come up with really juvenile, immature stuff but I suppose I was the same at that age!

    There are exceptions to this though, most notably @SweetHomicidalQueen, who is among the very few teens who is really sensible and mature!

  • I really REALLY do my best to take everyone's perspective seriously regardless of age.

    The thing about being younger than the person reading and interpreting your opinion, is that the life experience is limited, so my opinion to a 50yr old may seem misguided because I don't have as much life experience.

    The key to keeping an objective mind about everyone's opinion regardless of age, is to understand a theory-sourced opinion vs a life-experienced-sourced opinion, and to interpret them accordingly.

  • Doesn't matter to me, its what they say. Some of the 16/17 year olds on here can put up a better argument than many 30+. Even if i don't agree with them sometimes, i respect them.

  • An opinion is an opinion regardless of age. Some are well founded, but most are garbage... Some people have streaks of well founded opinions followed by nonsense and emotional blurbs. Real people shift all over the place on here day to day. They have their good days and their bad days. I can respect certain people's opinions over time even if I think they are wrong, because after a while I have a sense of who they are...

      I noticed that too actually, but some of them are pretty helpful on the Health and Fitness topic.

    • 3mo

      haha even on the health and fitness, they say stupid nonsense. I honestly can't even repeat what they wrote cause it made no sense.

  • Age doesn't matter, I don't take anyone here seriously.

  • Honestly, I don't even look at the age I look at the opinion.
    There are people much younger than me that have provided me with amazing answers and people who are much older that have given shitty answers.
    It's all about life experience, not age.
