Well it was four, but then I realized what you meant, so thirteen.


funsizedaisy

01 was the first number that popped into my head 😂 as in, someone born in 2001. But that person would be 20 years old right now so idk why my brain went there... and no, i wasn't a teen in 2001. I was 10.


BubblesHello

I was born in 01 and still consider myself a teen, I’m twenteen


Swanlafitte

You are 14 in hexidecimal.


BubblesHello

I’m not sure what that is but awesome! I feel younger every day


Swanlafitte

just in case you don't know, it is base 16. So instead of 10+10=20, it is 16+4=14. 16+16 would =20


diasporajones

I think I understand less about the world now than I did prior to reading your comment


Swanlafitte

Your parents agree.


tattooedmama3

I graduated HS in '01. Omg I'm so old 😫 lol


ConstructionLower549

2002 like what happened to time? I still feel and think I’m like 20? 22? Like I’m still shocked my friends are buying houses and getting pregnant and married ON PURPOSE. My fiends kid just turned 18. WERE NOT OLD ENOUGH TO HAVE ADULT CHILDREN


adensch82

It really sucks when your friends' kids start having their own kids😒


MoorTshn

Haha I graduated in '91. You are not old. Don't worry about it...yet.


dreamermom2

I feel old has H.S. grad date of '91 too. It's my friend's kids having kids that's getting to me


MoorTshn

Oh gods, I know! Or them getting married. Time flies so fricking fast. That's such a cliche but so true the older we get.


psmithrupert

It’s actually not a cliche at all, it’s a fact. Our perception of time changes in relation to the time we have already seen pass. The older you get the “faster” time moves. There is actual research into that. It makes sense too: when you are 10, one year is 1/10 of your life. When you are 50 one year is 1/50 of your life.

MulberryShorts

Well I read number as musical number apparently because my brain said wasteland. But 13


SexxxyWesky

For me it was "dirtbag" and realized they were asking to think of a number and not a word


MetaEsoTeric

i thought “mutant ninja turtles” then realised they meant a number then i thought “8” then i realised they meant one of the teens


regulate213

Turtle Power! Same for me. Not the 8, the rest of it.


SexxxyWesky

Lmao


lowrcase

For me it was “dream”


waitwhatchers

> For me it was "dirtbag" and realized they were asking to think of a number and not a word "Teenage Dirtbag" was number 1 in the Australian and number 2 in the British charts. I think a musical number is still a number.


Bananawamajama

For me it was "Dirtbag Baby"

Crime-Snacks

Lmao! I did the same thing but my number was 12 so I’m going to stick with that because we have “tweens” with smart phones, TikTok and DID 🙄 so it can still be relevant to the question.


Zuukal

It was "er" for me. Teenage...er. And then I suddenly understood the question and random numbers bombarded my mind :(


pompey_panda

Another turtles fan I see, would u like a slice of pizza


protossaccount

Reddit is where I realize how many of us think alike.


DiaDeLosMuertos

I didn't even see number I was like the song Teenage Color https://youtu.be/KOf6HzYjLDQ Evidently I wasn't the only one that didn't see "number"


DoctorPepster

For me it was "wasteland," but then I read it correctly, so 14.

MyUsernameIsAwful

I thought it was just free association. You hear a word and say the first thing that comes into your head. Since OP specifically asked for a number, my thought process went like this: Teenage->Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles->Well, there’s four of them, so four. But then I realized what they meant was “what age comes to mind when you see the word teenager?” … It’s not as funny when I explain it, lol.


Secret_Car

A lot of us had the same thought process

KingRoyIV

I think this is the right answer in terms of embodying stereotypical ‘teenage’ associations. Just getting old enough to stop considering themselves young, gaining some personal independence, yet still ignorant to just how young and inexperienced in the world they are.


-helpwanted

That’s probably why actually


WINDMILEYNO

"how old are you?"

nokoriin

Why's that?


hoothoot6996

hes scared of bugs


flailinks

Just flying ones


The_Steak_Guy

I agree, the flying ones are fucking scary. In the past 10 odd years, I've managed to overcome it in large strides. Flies, beetles and dragonflies mostly fine. I will still freak out if they spook me, but I can handle them if I know they're there (especially bees, they scare me but I love them). Wasps, moths and grasshoppers however, I've got quite a hard time keeping calm around those. Wasps and their kin are just mean fucks, grasshoppers look scary and can come at you in an instant. Moths, Idk what's with moths but my brain just refuses. When they're there my brain reacts as if a primordial terror has crept towards me. (I was so proud of myself when I caught one and got it outside my room). Thanks for listening to my little rant about my fear of bugs


ShaneGough

I see you've never experienced flying roaches. *insert PTSD screams*

This seems to be the popular answer


soupsticle

Not without reason. It is the first "teen" number Eleven, twelve, thir***teen***, four***teen***, ..


-helpwanted

Yeah, I figured that. For me the first number to pop in my head is always 16


traveler19395

Me too. Could be that it's exactly the middle of the teens (13-19). Could also have something to do with it being a significant age (US) for driving and new freedoms.


GChocapic

Exactly. 12 is pre-teen and 13, because of the *teen* part, is when teenager starts. Then it stops at 19 (even though they are supposedly adults at 18 - in some countries).


Scroll-Champ

13 is the number after breaking the most sensical number system i.e the 12 system It's basically the 11 of the 10 system


ItsNotThunder

Tbh, I used to tutor children and the 13yo were the worst. When I think about the word teenager, I think about all the disrespect and attitude they bring with them (no, I dont tutor anymore) and the worst were definitely 13/14. So, 13 was the first number I thought. When they get to 16/17 they already want to be treated like adults, so they behave better.

DeadonDemand

You actually spelled it correctly but Nirvana made and album called “Nevermind” as you probably know, and it is very common for younger people (meaning about under 50-55) spell it the Nirvana way.

I was trying to spell it the Nirvana way, but my phone had other plans lol. She’s just not a fan I guess

noottt

I read number as song. So I was thinking about Baba O'Riley by The Who


Atari-Dude

After thinking about that song, having no actual idea what year it came out (come to think of it I don't think I've actually listened the song either), the first number my brain went to was 1972. Only 1 calendar year off, really not too bad! Guess my brain just picked the closest year it could based on the naming being "Baba O'Riley" and was just like: "yep, 1972". '71 actually sounds even more right tho. '68-'69 could also be right too? But yeah, 1972 was the first number that popped into my head

DesertAbyss

nornalperson

when i think of a teenager i think of a 16 year old, but if we’re defining when you transition from being a child to a teenager i would say 13. i always just picture 16 as the most teenage age because you’re just old enough to think you know everything and want to make your own decisions, you get your license, maybe a first kiss or a first relationship, but still young enough to make silly decisions and maintain a lot of traits from younger childhood

69 and 420, not even kidding. Age-wise I know anyone from 13 to 19 is considered a teenager, but my first thought is 16 or 17. I think most people I know hit that stereotypical "teenager" phase around that time. (Just gonna point out, I'm 18 going on 19 in 2 months. So I'm still pretty much a teenager. Lol)
