Are You Top or Bottom Quiz

Understanding whether you lean more towards being a top or a bottom in an intimate relationship can offer valuable insights into your personality and preferences. This fun quiz will help reveal if you align more with a top or bottom role.

What Does Top and Bottom Mean?

In the context of same-sex relationships or yaoi/slash fiction, the terms “top” and “bottom” refer to sexual preferences and broader relationship dynamics between partners. Specifically:

Tops: Also referred to as “semes”. Tops/semes tend to prefer taking the lead, being more assertive, bold, and dominant in relationships both in and out of the bedroom.

Bottoms: Also called “ukes”. Bottoms/ukes tend to be more passive, sensitive, and nurturing. They often prefer the top/seme partner to take charge.

Switching roles is also common based on mood, context, and preferences. But most people have an overall leaning. Understanding you and your partner’s alignment can help set reasonable expectations.

Discover Your Role: Seme or Uke

This simple quiz will determine whether you align more closely with a Seme/Top or Uke/Bottom role based on your personality inclinations. There are no right or wrong results, only insight to help you gain self-awareness.

The Top/Seme Personality

People who score high in the “Top” personality archetype often exhibit these key traits:

  • Assertive – Tops are usually dominant, self-assured, and able to take charge calmly but firmly. They initiate action and speak up first.
  • Bold – Tops are confident making the first move and actively pursuing their desires without hesitation or awkwardness.
  • Thrill-seeking – Typical Tops seek adventure and new experiences. Their confidence allows them to navigate uncertainty.
  • Protective – With their boldness often comes protectiveness and chivalry towards romantic partners.
  • Logical – Tops frequently identify as logical and objective thinkers who can detach from drama.

Additionally, Tops often thrive in leadership roles, initiate office romances, and take pride in providing for and guiding their partners. They relish playing the traditionally masculine pursuer and protector role.

The Bottom/Uke Personality

Meanwhile, people who score high in the “Bottom” archetype commonly share these characteristics:

  • Nurturing – Bottoms tend to be caring, empathetic partners who look out for others’ needs and emotional well-being.
  • Unselfish – Similarly, Bottoms are usually generous partners willing to compromise their own interests for loved ones.
  • Romantic – In tandem with their nurturing instincts, Bottoms often deeply value emotional intimacy and romance.
  • Playful – Despite their tendency to avoid risk, Bottoms also have a quality of lightness, humor and being up for adventure with trusted partners.

Additionally, Bottoms may thrive in traditionally feminine homemaker roles, cherish being provided for, and prefer their partner to initiate courtship, romance and intimacy. They lean into supportive follower roles in relationships.
