    I am usually very good at it. I however find, it is better not to say anything. Most people don't like it.

    Not really. I meet hundreds of people but really can't tell their age from their appearance.

    It  could go either way. I have found it's better not to guess people's age because they will most likely be insulted if you go over. If I want to know someones's age, I usually figure out a way so that they tell me what their age is, without really asking.

    Yes I am great at it. Estimate their age and then subtract 25 years or say 19 or 20. People do not like it when you guess higher than what they are, but they love it when you guess their age at much younger than what it is. Note that when it comes to children guess older than what you think they are.

    I am a huge failure at guessing someone's age; I can be off by a decade or more.

    I don't ask, that's too personal unless you have an official reason like for job applications or something like that. Like Lupine says, there are ways to figure out someone's age without having them say it out loud.
    Sometimes I guess correctly, sometimes not- it depends. So many people look younger or older than they are so it's definitely hard to even estimate now.

    I am pretty good at guessing ages but when it comes to people guessing my age I am always much older than they think. (Not complaining! hehe)
