This Will Surprise No One

 
COMBINED GENDER IDENTITY AND TRANSSEXUALITY INVENTORY
(COGIATI)

Did you know there is a test? I honestly had no idea.

It could go either way for me...really.

I am fairly sure if I was alone I would become female. However, I am not. I do not live or make decisions for me alone. It's my whole family. Even if I did become a woman...I would still want to be with only women.

That makes it slightly confusing and tricky since I have a great woman...the mother of my children...my wife. I can't just change overnight.

So is it really any wonder that I am probably a transexual? Nope. Does it change anything? Nope. Results of test below


Your COGIATI result value is: 155 Which means that you fall within the following category:
COGIATI classification FOUR, PROBABLE TRANSSEXUAL
What this means is that the Combined Gender Identity And Transsexuality Inventory has classified your internal gender identity to be essentially feminine, but with some masculine or androgynous traits. It is very possible that you are a candidate for a diagnosis of transsexualism. You show a strong degree of gender dysphoria. At the very least, further investigation should be undertaken. Your COGIATI score places you among the majority of those diagnosed as transsexuals, the 'late onset' tanssexual.
SUGGESTIONS FOR ACTION:
Your situation is potentially serious and indicative of a probable inborn gender conflict. It is definitely recommended that you pursue further action.
The suggestions for your circumstance are several.
It is recommended that you seek help from a sympathetic counselor or professional about your gender issues. It is very possible that over time they will become increasingly difficult to cope with. Early determination of what you really need and want is vital. You need to determine if you truly are transsexual. Keep in mind, thought, that many alternatives exist other than complete sexual transformation. Partial transformation and many other way of existing are available. While you are very possibly a transsexual, COGIATI has determined that this is not absolutely certain. While time is an issue, being certain is more important. Proceed with investigation of your possible transsexuality or transgenderism, but with caution.
Some actions may help you to define your needs more clearly. Experimenting with living full time as a woman, taking hormones for a short time under supervision, or taking testosterone suppressers to observe how you feel are all viable options. Keep in mind that while it is very likely that you might be a transsexual, it is not certain. Do not take severe or permanent actions without long thought and the help of counselors and professionals.
Your gender issues are real, and should not be ignored. Neither should you rush into acting on them, however powerful they may feel. You do not fit the full criterion for the rarest classification, classic transsexuality, and so should be cautious, and open to possibilities. You may yet end up undergoing transition, and the path of the transsexual may well be your salvation. Be very careful, but do not ignore your issues.
If you have not already, consider joining any of the thousands of groups devoted to gender expression of various kinds. There is literally a world of friends to discover who share your interests. There are also publications, vacations, and activities that would expand your gender expression.

About the scoring:<br />

So a 500-600 range is pure female with all the classic markers, Josie...me many more questions and lots of confusion and angst.<br />
<br />
Was pondering if it was off, so I just retook the test during waking hours. I am not sure what I did different but the score went up to 280 which falls in the higher end of probable but basically still the same. Still not surprising. Still changes nothing. <br />
<br />
Oh well.

I think it is safe to say that if you get my results you are not normal in your gender identity.

Sounds like you got some politician-level waffling from it. I wonder if every adult alive took it and were completely honest, if 90%+ would fall in this category? What's the web address of the test?

I've taken that test several times too. Maybe twice a year and I always score in the 500-600 range. For me I've known since I was around 5 years old.<br />

Thanks for your story and takes for your words. We need more to know and understand. <br />

Take care.

I take that test a few time.. (leave a year between the tests) My result always androgyne, but its change nothing, im a crossdresser, female minded man; even if i good in math and i like cycling, in my mind im a female, i hate mans clothes (because its look like a sack.. :S), and i love everything what is feminine.
