The BDSM Relationship Handbook, by Michael Makai

The Dominant Test


What Kind of Dominant Are You?



This quiz helps you to learn what kind of Dominant you are.  It assumes from the start that you are a Dominant of some sort, so anyone taking the test  who isn’t a Dom will get meaningless results. The categories of Dominant used in this test are taken from the book, “Domination & Submission: The BDSM Relationship Handbook” by Michael Makai.



Please answer the questions to the best of your ability. Do not skip any questions. If the question isn’t relevant due to your current circumstances (i.e. the question refers to your relationship dynamic, but you are not currently in a relationship) simply answer the question based on your typical circumstance or hypothetically. If, for example, you’ve never actually tied someone up, but you devoutly wish you could, then answer “Yes, I like to tie people up.” , Just choose the best answer, even if it isn’t technically the correct answer. In other words, don’t overthink the questions.

This test is for educational and entertainment purposes only, and is simply designed to get you thinking or to encourage further exploration and discussion on the subject. Don’t go out and get a tat based on these results.
