error TS2352: Conversion of type ‘{ name: string; age: number; }‘ to type ‘Person‘ may be a mistake because neither type sufficiently overlaps with the other. If this was intentional, convert the expression to ‘unknown‘ first.

type Person = {
firstName: string;

const myObject = {

Fixed Code ✔️

Make sure all properties of your object match the properties of your declared type:

type Person = {
firstName: string;
age: number;
}

const myObject = {
firstName: 'Benny',
age: 34,
} as Person;

Alternative but not recommended: Convert your object to unknown first:

type Person = {
firstName: string;
age: number;
}

const myObject = {

age: 34,
} as unknown as Person;
