on the other hand it seems consistent enough that I was attracted mostly to the "same" sex then and now. I guess that makes me a homo on both ends, so to speak.
and as always I am unsure how to define "same" and "other." does same=ftm transsexual and other=everybody else? in that case I'd show up as very heterosexual and although etymologically speaking I suppose that would be true, I don't think it would spark particularly accurate images in the reader.
but so I answered the questions as though there were simply a binary and I simply jumped from one pole to the other, and got a result that makes a moderate amount of sense in that model.
Klein Sexual Orientation Grid
I scored an average of 4.38
MeaningThis 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
SummaryThe 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.
