"But... why are you a sub?"

"...I dunno? They're not sure if it's genetic or what."

Permalink

"It's something you're born with?"

Permalink

"Dunno, some people can tell pretty young but some figure it out when they're like already eighteen."

Permalink

"How do you figure it out? Is there a test?"

Permalink

"No. Uh, maybe? I bet there are Internet quizzes for people who are sixteen and still confused and don't wanna pick something random for their driver's license. Mostly you just know."

Permalink

"You just know?"

Permalink

"Y...yeah? It's just obvious, usually."

Permalink

"Oh."

"Do you want to take an Internet quiz to see what you are?"

"Sure?"

They find him an internet quiz: What Role Are You? A guide for questioning teens. Jackson explains how to fill it out. It asks questions like:

1) If you and some friends are going to a restaurant and need to pick one, do you:
A: announce you're all going to your favorite
B: point out that you haven't had a specific friend's favorite in a while
C: ask one of your friends what they want to eat
D: keep quiet until your friends come to a decision and go along

...

5) When doing partnered dance, do you prefer to...
A: Lead
B: Follow
C: Whichever suits my partner or the venue's role balance
D: I don't dance

...

17: Imagine yourself when you're twenty-five. How does your twenty-five-year-old self wear their hair?
A: Very short
B: Very long
C: Medium length
D: Mixed length - bangs, undercut, etc.

...and so on like that for 48 questions.

Some of the questions require context he doesn't have, but he eventually manages to answer all of them.

His answers end up being mixed, but it narrowly classifies him as a dom.

"So there you go, I guess?" says Jackson. "I mean if you decide you're actually a sub or a switch later that's, you know, fine."

Permalink

"Oh," he says again, "alright. Is this, er, something everyone does?"

Permalink

"Most people don't have to take quizzes."

Permalink

"Does anyone not do it?"

Permalink

"Not do... quizzes? I just said - or do you mean not do roles? I guess? There's, wosscalled..."

"Nondynamics," puts in Brian.

Permalink

"How common is that?"

Permalink

"...not? I don't think I've ever met one," says Jackson.

"You might have, but they might not be out, they might just pretend to be normal," Brian says.

"Yeah, I guess."

Permalink

"I don't think anyone I've ever met does this."

Permalink

"Well, you're from some weird place," Jackson says.

Permalink

"Not as weird as here."

Permalink

"Here's perfectly regular!"

Permalink

"You only have humans! No one else!"
