You're probably a sadist
You can't be named a masochist since you're so particular about yourself and your feelings. Instead, you have the qualities of a true sadist. You like to dominate, demonstrate your rightness and act selfishly giving nasty looks at people around in between. If you come across a fan of such relations, it will be real luck. However, this chance is unlikely, be careful!
You're a first-rate masochist indeed. You like to feel your weakness and vulnerability. Of course, life is not always a box of chocolates, but you shouldn't reduce it to pain and suffering.
You can't stand pain
You cannot even hear the pain word neither in a physical nor in a moral sense. You feel scared and want to close your eyes. All that sado, maso- and other "chisms" are not for you since you prefer a calm existence and a peaceful life.
