types, meaning IxI and xII, are usually Bottoms; except for the ILI (esp. if Te subtype) who is more of a "Switch" due to their Pseudo-Aggressor nature.
Ignoring has many Bottom tendencies as well, especially SEI. With
Ignoring you can see how a Caregiver can be closer to Victim, and with that closer to stereotypical Bottom behavior.
Obviously the most Aggressor (
ego) are the most "Top" technically, though the Gamma SFs less so; especially ESI is not as Aggressor and can even have Pseudo-Victim (hello
HA) tendencies, while their Dual has got Pseudo-Aggressor ones. In that context, Gammas are generally closest to being "Switch".
Caregivers who do have the ability to act the most "Top"-like without being Aggressor are those with Demonstrative (4D)
, which are LSE and ESE, the latter being slightly less Aggressor due to their strong Caregiver attitude. LSI is sort of moving from full-on Aggressor to a less pro-active attitude from time to time (again
HA influence). EIE is similar in that regard; they oscillate between being full-on Victim and slightly less so due to their
Role types (IxE) also can have an "on/off" quality, and hence are more Switch-like too.
The most "Bottom":
IEI > EII > LII > SEI > EIE > SLI
The most "Switch":
> ILI > IEE > ILE > ESI > LIE > SEE
The most "Top":
SLE > LSE > LSI > ESE >
Following that, SLI is the most Switch-like from the Bottoms, ILI is the most Bottom-like from the Switches, SEE is the most Top-like from the Switches, ESE is the most Bottom-like from the Tops (and hence can seem Switch-like). This ranking is based on the types with no (0) subtype. Subtypes can skew the ranking, sometimes even dramatically (if it is a strong subtype). Add to that different sexual expression due to instinctual stacking and gender skewing the ranking.
