Last week, a friend asked for my opinion on a dress she wanted to buy online. After looking at what she chose, I told her: “Wow, it’s totally your style! You are going to look so 知性 (“zhī xìnɡ” Intellectual and Beautiful) in this dress.” Of course, 知性 refers to more than just her style of clothing. It refers to her lifestyle, her preferences, and even to her personality. In China today, “知性” is just one of many new internet lingos used to describe a particular kind of Chinese girl. Take this quiz to find out what kind of Chinese girl you are!
