How Dominant Are You Quiz
In every relationship, there is a person who is dominant and a person who is submissive. Most people don’t even realize which role they are in if they don’t sit down to truly think about it. Dominant partners tend to be more of the decision-makers. However, their traits can cause one or the other partner to lose interest or can even result in the dominant person creating more of a dictatorship that could become borderline abusive in some cases.
