Some adults come across as rude. Adulthood is the time you express how you feel and put it in words. People have rated adulthood the best time of their lifes. That so much happens and you learn much more in adulthood. Later Adulthood Intellectual changes in late adulthood do not always result in reduction of ability. While fluid intelligence does decline in later years, crystallized intelligence has been shown to rise slightly over the entire life span The elderly tend to lose their memerory and become more self conscious.
