Surprised

I am surprised that my result was this high

COMBINED GENDER IDENTITY AND TRANSSEXUALITY INVENTORY
(COGIATI)

Your COGIATI result value is: 430 Which means that you fall within the following category: COGIATI classification FIVE, TRANSSEXUAL What this means is that the Combined Gender Identity And Transsexuality Inventory has classified your internal gender identity to be female. According to COGIATI, your mind and gender identity is that of a woman. You essentially fit the the model of the classic transsexual, and you should not ignore your gender issues, they will only become more severe. You definitely need to seek treatment. SUGGESTIONS FOR ACTION: Your situation is serious and highly indicative of an inborn gender conflict. It is strongly recommended that you pursue further action. The suggestions for your circumstance are important.
  1. It is recommended that you seek help from a sympathetic counselor or professional about your gender issues. Over time they will become increasingly difficult to cope with. Early confirmation and diagnosis of your transsexuality is vital. The sooner you seriously seek help, the more likely you are to not only survive, but to be happy as well.
  2. Some actions may help you to define your condition to yourself 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 extremely likely that you are a transsexual, it is not certain. Do not take severe or permanent actions without careful thought and the help of counselors and professionals.
  3. Your gender issues are real, and should not be ignored! Neither should you rush into acting on them, however powerful they may feel. Transition to  a body with a female sex may be your salvation, but it is imperative that you be absolutely sure of what your really want. Act IMMEDIATELY to pursue solving your gender dysphoria. Seek professional assistance IMMEDIATELY!
  4. 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.
  5. You have my wishes for your happiness, my sister. Good luck.

Yes that's true. I did that too and it was only after counselling that I went to a gender specialist. I don't know how this test is weighted, but answered the questions honestly and came up with results above.

i agree,there is no point taking that test unless you are going to be honest to yourself,it is as you say only an indication,if anyone thinks their gender is wrong,then like i did go to your doctor first and then on to a gender specialist

Whatever, there is controversy over this test both ways. It can give an indication with some and not with others.

COGIATI is hardly scientifically viable... Some guys GUYS with no gender dysphoria issues scored way high just by manipulating the answers. Some people with strong sexual/ gender dysphoria can score fairly low it doesn't mean **** really...
