This is a very typical and strange part 3 question – does anyone really think about these things? Nevertheless, it’s quite easy to answer. Follow the 3 stage approach.
(1) Well..I suppose.. (give yourself thinking time)
(2) ..especially these days there is much more variety so it is more difficult to say what is “typical” (reflect on the question – which is always very vaguely worded)
(3) but an average person is probably thinking about education in their teens, getting a job in their 20s and getting married in their 30s … (answer the question – you could go on to give much more here and an example – but I prefer to challenge the premise of the question)
… but so many peple are different that it is difficult to call this “typical” – I know many people who are getting married and remarried in their 40s – changing their careers and even going back to university in their 50s – when this is happening I think it is just untrue to create an “average” and then call it “typical”.
