Gen Z TikTok users, known for introducing some of the most insane challenges on social media, re-introduced a mind-twisting game called the Rice Purity Test.
The Rice Purity Test is an online questionnaire that assesses one’s level of “innocence” or experience in various areas of life.
From dating to alcohol, drug use, and sexual orientations, participants are expected to tick off items on the list to track the score of their innocence.
What is the Rice Purity Test?
The Rice purity test is a questionnaire consisting of 100 questions that aim to gauge an individual’s level of “innocence” or life experience in areas such as relationships, crime, drugs, and alcohol, sexual experiences.
Participants go through the list and mark off the items that apply to them. A score of 100 suggests limited sexual or romantic encounters, while a score of zero may include more taboo experiences like “bestiality” or “criminal convictions.”
However, it is important to note that a low score should not be considered an aspiration.
Origin and Resurgence:
Originally developed during the 1980s at Rice University in Houston, Texas, the Rice purity test has experienced a resurgence on social media platforms in recent weeks.
Although some questions may seem outdated, Gen Z TikTok users have eagerly embraced the test. In response, some users have created a contemporary version called the “innocence test,” incorporating modern references like Tinder.
This modified version was created by two female best friends who sought to update the test for a more current audience.
Playing the Rice Purity Test:
To participate in the Rice purity test, one can find the complete questionnaire online and share their scores on their preferred social media platform.
It is important to remember that the test is intended to be a lighthearted activity, and no one should be made to feel judged or inferior based on their level of “purity.”
Additionally, it is worth noting that older individuals are likely to have higher scores due to their accumulated life experiences compared to younger Gen Z participants.
