12:15 pm - Definition of orientation
This seems fairly accurate:

Klein Sexual Orientation Grid


I scored an average of 1.81



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

i wish the test had other choices besides gay, lesbian and hetero. i also can't conceive of an "opposite" sex, since my self and my partner(s) aren't strictly one thing or another. i couldn't fill it out because none of the options really included the range of sexualities/genders that my life and sex practice involves.

*shrug*

the intention is good, though, and it's more inclusive than other tests often are.

Quite true. I loathe those terms on general principles, and there are also a fair a number of people I know (and some that I'm attracted to, including one of my partners) where the terminology of opposite and same sex breaks down even more than it does with me.

I did this test a while ago, and like somebody pointed out, it's a bit strange that it counts "social preference" and lifestyle part of one's sexual orientation. Especially when they define lifestyle as the sexual identity of the people I socialize with - the "heterosexual somewhat more" category would be most apporpriate for me, I think, but isn't that pretty random? It's not like I'd pick the people I socialize with according to their orientation...

Getting married has definitely changed a couple of answers, but nonetheless:
