Take the "matchmaking" test, and see what you get!

Mine are pretty cool (except #40 "Parkinglot attendant": WTF??). My own is #15. I just wonder why ESL teacher and Language teacher came up higher than my actual job. Interesting is the fact that I do webdesign as part of the educational-technology specialty that I have in my teaching life.

Orientation? Due South

gakked from a_d_medievalist

I'm surprised how hetero-norm this is, actually...

Klein Sexual Orientation Grid


I scored an average of 1.62



01 2 3 4 5
6

HeterosexualBisexual Homosexual

Meaning

This result can also be related to the Kinsey Scale:


0 = exclusively heterosexual
1 = predominantly heterosexual, incidentally homosexual
2 = predominantly heterosexual, but more
than incidentally homosexual
3 = equally heterosexual and homosexual
4 = predominantly homosexual, but more than incidentally
heterosexual
5 = predominantly homosexual, incidentally heterosexual
6 = exclusively homosexual

Summary


The idea of this excercise is to understand exactly how dynamic a person's sexual orientation can be, as well as how fluid it can be over a person's lifespan. While a person's number of actual homo/heterosexual encounters may be easy to categorize, their actual orientation may be completely different. Simple labels like "homosexual", "heterosexual", and "bisexual" need not be the only three options available to us.
