    I've always wondered whether all people have the same 'ideal' temperature, or whether there are factors influencing this. So let's find out :wink:

    I've given a lot of options to make sure my assumptions don't interfere with the experiment. All numbers are in Celcius.

    Please tell what option you chose for, whether you are male or female and whether you are from a cold, temperate or warm country. The reason for this is that I wonder whether these two factors influence your ideal temperature, or whether all human bodies simply have a certain optimum.

    I can say one thing for sure the older you get the less you like the cold, your body does get a bit stiff and the aches and pains are worse.
    So me= male, active, getting older with temperate climate, give me the heat any time


    I meant to say 24-27 deg C

    Interesting! :-D

    My ideal temperature is between 21-24 degrees (probably 22 or 23). I'm male and I'm from a temperate climate.

    My favoured temperature is around 25C/77F or slightly cooler. I also prefer sunny weather, but I enjoy an odd downpour too.

    I don't think it is possible (for me) to answer this accurately without defining:

    a) Character of clothing
    b) Wind speed
    c) Humidity

    It will also be contingent upon time of day relative to ones biological clock; time since last meal, and nature of last meal; character of immediate environment, including presence of vegetation, colours, etc.

    In brief, I suspect our ideal temperature varies significantly over time.

    I prefer feezing cold weather where its just really snowy and cold, minus the freezing cold wind in the ears. Though I also like it when its 75 and sunny and no humidity. but Sadly I live in the weater hell of the world, and its usually 110 plus 110$ humidity or flooding.

    Still a lot of variation But I agree with Ophiolite: temperature in itself is not enough, humidity also plays a major role in creating comfort/discomfort. Although I think most people assume humidity at a non-extreme level when answering this question, making the answers reasonably comparable.

    I prefer 56 degrees Fahrenheit, which is about 13 degrees Celsius. Some would call where I live cold or wet, but we just say "temperate." Oh, and I am male.

    26 degrees Centigrade is the upper limit for me, id rather it slightly cooler than warmer, being in the UK is fine for me till we get a hot summer and im crawling for shade The humidity is also a factor, the uk gets hot and sticky rather than the better dry heat of the med, hot sticky nights aint nice

    For me a fresh spring day, with a slight nip in the air and plenty of sunshine is perfect
