What is this?

Most comprehensive personality tests treat sexuality as a side note. Then there are the fun quickie quizzes about sex — but those are mere flirtations. SexType.Me is the first research-based personality test, and it aspires to uncover your complete (and complex) sexual self.

By taking part in SexType.Me, you’re learning about your sexual self, and you’re also participating in an ambitious interactive investigation. As more people take the test, our researchers’ analyses grow in precision.

Why Are We Doing It?

We think it’s important to possess a deeper understanding of your sexual nature. The more you know about yourself, the more authentically you can lead your life. Similarly, your interactions with others will improve once you understand how you operate in the context of sex and relationships.

How does the analysis work?

In simple terms, your answers inform our researchers about behavioral trends and unique personality traits. We have identified six sexual personality dimensions that we will refine as we move forward and develop a final version of the test.

Why Should I Participate?

Three good reasons:
  • Learn more about yourself.
  • Be part of our big plans. (You want to be part of something big, don’t you?)
  • Do it for science!

Who’s involved?

Our research team is led by an internationally renowned molecular biologist, Dr. Lee Silver. We are also working with Kristen Mark, PhD, MPH, a behavioral health scientist and tenured professor at the Institute for Sexual and Gender Health in the University of Minnesota Medical School — plus a group of very talented research assistants.
