    I don't remember at the moment if I enabled or disabled it but I'm 32 and I'm pretty sure I've remarked on it in context a number of times. I'm not embarrassed by it but I don't see it as relevant in a general sense- and if it becomes relevant, I share it.

But if anyone knows your age, suddenly they know too much about you. *shrug*

    I think it's helpful to know people's ages, to help put things in context. You have a better idea of where they're coming from when they post, how to respond, etc.
    All good points by Martoon.

    I'm 21. It's a good age to be.

    The INFPs I talk to all say they not only look younger than their age but also act younger as well. My 35 year old daughter could still pass for twenty and no one ever guesses my age even close.

    Daughter used to complain about being taken for being so much younger but is beginning to see the cultural value of it. I appreciate the youthful qualities of my personality type a lot! (There's my own vestiges of ageism popping out.)

    30.

    Guess I hadn't paid attention when I set my account up and didn't know I could show just age. I didn't want my b-day displayed.

    I don't think it's a big deal - I've never made it a habit to look at peoples' profiles, actually, and have never really cared how old others are.

    Same, except I want to know who all the senile people are. kidding


    I'm sometimes curious about people's age, but I figure that if we forced everyone to display it they might just lie anyway. Ambiguity is less confusing than the increased possibility of deception.

    Hey, booya. You do know what Minnesotans think of Wisconsinites?

    People are so aged obsessed have you ever noticed how they always put famous people's ages after their name when writing a story about them. I'm somewhere between 21 and 30 ha ha I like to keep people guessing, it's amusing to me. In real life people think I'm a teenager. I'm a teacher and I wish I had a dollar for everytime parents meet me and say YOU'RE THE TEACHER? with their jaw on the floor I mean I could retire.
    Somebody has to be fabulous, it might as well be me! LOL

    When I was a teenager posting on online forums I purposely hid my age so people would take what I said seriously. I didn't want people to look down on me as an idiotic 13 year-old or base their responses to my comments based on their own preconceived notions of who I was. So my written comments stood on their own.

    Now an old woman of 25, and not ashamed of my age.

    I didn't realize it wasn't showing. It had my birth date rather than my age. *shrug*
