Austin, TX (PRWEB) December 19, 2007
The One Question, a website that helps people find their purpose in life, announced results of a study conducted among its users. The study looked into the demographics of people that use The One Question self-discovery test designed to help people that want to discover their purpose and passion.
The One Question, found at http://www.theonequestion.com, collected data on test takers for 5 months and got information from over 2,500 respondents. The study looked at age and gender of the test takers.
The study reveals a striking concentration of people in the age group between 19 and 30 are looking for their purpose in life. There are no significant differences when it comes gender: men and women were seeking answers to life purpose related questions relatively equally. The number of men who took the test was only slightly more than half: 52%.
"Our study suggests that quarterlife crises may really be happening. This seems to truly be the era when people are asking themselves the most about what they should do with their lives," said Peep Laja, founder of The One Question.
The second highest age group was between the ages of 31 and 40 with 27%, followed by 41 to 50 year olds with 15% and 51 to 65 year olds with 7.5%. Young people under 19 years formed just over 4% and over 65 year olds less than 1%.
"Our study clearly shows that as people get older, they stop questioning the path they have chosen for their life - whether it's because they have accepted their life as it is or they have become clear on their life purpose. At the same time very young people - 18 and less - have not started to question life yet and might have more of "one day at the time" approach to life", commented Laja.
