Life Through Google's Eyes: Do You Fit Your Search Engine Age Profile? (VIDEO)

01/05/2013 08:46 BST

No one likes to imagine that Google knows more about their personality, than they do.

However, a new viral video demonstrates that when it comes to age-related profiling, the search engine giant appears to have a keen sense of what we're all up to, from years 0 to 100.

For example, if you type in 'I'm 14', then a variety of sentence endings populate the box, which include 'and pregnant' and 'my boyfriend is 18'.

According the video's creator, Marius B, these plausible, if less than ideal, potential queries are the result of user profiling by Google.

Marius B says: "Using billions of searches, Google has prototyped an anonymous profile of its users.

"This reflects the fears, inquiries, preoccupations, obsessions and fixations of the human being at a certain age and our evolution through life."

However, as the users become older, strangely, the sentences appear to continue to populate with very similar suggestions.

HuffPost UK Lifestyle can't help wondering how many 60-year-olds are googling: "I'm 60 and I'm pregnant."
