About This Quiz

It's hard to know exactly how to describe oneself in bed. The mainstreaming of kink has provided a vast lexicon on terms for every facet of intimacy, but there's a paradox. If you aren't already "in" that area of kink, then you hardly know how to use its terms to define how you are in bed. What's much easier to do is describing oneself in other terms, like using animal imagery. After all, we've been using animals to describe our behavior since we first formed words in the caves of our ancestors.

This still leaves us with the problem of perspective. Fortunately, Myers-Briggs has a personality test for that. The Myers-Briggs test produces codes describing the aspects of personality the test purports to measure, and those codes can be defined in animal-like behaviors, which have a lot of meaning when using them to describe oneself in the bedroom. After all, saying someone is like a species that eats its mates says a lot about how someone acts in the bedroom.

We have created a version of the Myers-Briggs test aimed squarely at figuring out what you're like in an intimate setting. Take it, and we will tell you what animal you are like in the bedroom.
