The Cogiati Test Link

Remember, its not scientific. But it does seem to be very close to some professional Psychological tests Laura took years ago. Jennifer did a nice job. Besides the test was kind of fun. The test link is also on the Fun stuff page of my site.

The recommendations made after your results are received are excellent. She should have been a psychologist. Its interesting to note that test is still talked about as widely now as when it first came out.

I came up as:

220 - COGIATI classification FOUR, PROBABLE TRANSSEXUAL

Really interesting and surprising. About 4 years back I would have scored closer to androgyne. Untill recently I would have said I was an androgyne with some conviction. But lately things have been getting increasingly more difficult to cope with and I have been leaning increasingly towards the feminine.

The world just keeps getting more interesting doesn't it ? :( *sigh*

well i took the test about a year ago, result +80 androgyn (around the time i came out to my parents)

i took it again half a year ago and it was 200 something class 4 possible ts

with both there were a lot of questions i didn't know the answer to, and just gambled

so i took it back recently and tried to answer every question where i didn't know the answer on as masculine as possible (so minus 10) en if i doubted between more answers i took the most masculine out of those

and still i scored -115 which is still in the androgyn class 3, which just makes me think i'm right about being androgyn, which i still find kind of scary... but i have supprotive parents, and my siblings are okay with it, yeay me ^_^

Consistent with my prior results... and good advice too :-)

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Your COGIATI result value is: 455 Which means that you fall within the following category:

COGIATI classification FIVE, TRANSSEXUAL

What this means is that the Combined Gender Identity and Transexuality 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 model of the classic transsexual, and you should not ignore your gender issues, they will only become more severe. You definately 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 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 suppressors to observe how you feel are all viable options. Keep in mind that while it is extemely 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 you really want. Act IMMEDIATELY to pursue solving your gender dysphoria. Seek professional help IMMEDIATELY!

4. If you have not already, consider joining any of the thousands of groups devoted to gender expression of various kinds. There are 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

No surprises for me. I wonder why I'm so confused :P

Your COGIATI result value is: 170 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.

1.

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.

2.

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.

3.

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.

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.

I found the COGIATI test interesting. It mixes (at least) two different concepts: The gender of the rational mind and feelings about your body. I never thought about the fact that I have a very "classically male" mind, mathematics, spatial relations, etc. On the other hand I liked the question about how big a party you'd throw if something fell off! FYI: I got -60.

As far as I know there isn't a test like this for FtMs, though I would still put more value on how I see myself then on any test. However, I can see how this test could help someone who is unsure of themselves.

I've taken a few joke tests, like those quiz things people plaster all over their blogs, and those normally end up saying I'm slightly femme. I already knew I was a feminine guy LOL.

Hello. I’m not really sure where to post this, so, uh… here we go. I just took the COGIATI test. Holy cow, Escher, that ice cube question completely threw me. And there was no “I don’t even know where my head is now” answer. I also didn’t know how to answer the hormone therapy question as I am to poor to do anything… In fact, I have zero money. Now, the COGIATI test results said that I was a class five… and that my situation is serious and highly indicative of an inborn gender conflict. Yeah, that played merry hell with my childhood. The results also said that it was strongly recommended that I pursue further action… and something about “IMMEDIATELY!” I know it’s not a professional test (as if there was one). You know what… I don’t know really where to post this. Okay.

Your COGIATI result value is: 110 Which means that you fall within the following category:

COGIATI classification THREE, ANDROGYNE

What this means is that the Combined Gender Identity And Transsexuality Inventory has classified your internal gender identity to be essentially androgynous, both male and female at the same time, or possibly neither. In some cultures in history, you would be considered to be a third sex, independent of the polarities of masculine or feminine. Your gender issues are intrinsic to your construction, and you will most likely find your happiness playing with expressing both genders as you feel like it.

so far i have goten this every time i take it.

I only hope no one puts too much emphasis on the COGIATI. It's not much more than a game at best. When I last did it, the result was class 4. The year before, class 3. I don't put any faith in those two results. I've always classified myself as class 5. I don't care what the quiz says.

I just think anything that classifies you as feminine or not based on whether you can parallel park or do math is baloney. By the way, I do not enjoy hugs from men who are strangers. I've never met a GG who does. If a guy tried that with me, I'd punch him out. Too bad that option wasn't on the list. (Probably worth -50.)

Question 54. A stranger is happy at meeting you. He wants to give you a hug. How do you honestly feel about this?

By the way, I happen to be very good at parallel parking and math. :P

"The

COMBINED GENDER IDENTITY AND TRANSSEXUALITY INVENTORY

(COGIATI)

Your COGIATI result value is: -290 Which means that you fall within the following category:

COGIATI classification TWO, FEMININE MALE

What this means is that the Combined Gender Identity And Transsexuality Inventory has classified your internal gender identity to be mostly masculine, and that your gender issues are primarily matters of personal expression rather than a medical problem. Any struggles you have are most likely caused by internal shame over your needs and desires, or because of curiosity over what those needs represent. There is, however, some indication of a strong feminine side to your being, and this is intrinsic to your constitution.

SUGGESTIONS FOR ACTION:

Your situation is fairly uncomplicated, so you should be relieved.

Since your situation is almost certainly not a matter of any real physical or biological concern, the suggestions for your circumstance are relatively simple.

1.

If you have any uncomfortability about your gender expression, counseling might well prove helpful. The primary goal would be to make it possible for you to enjoy your gender expressions free from any shame or embarrassment, and to resolve any remaining questions you might have.

2.

Your gender issues and expressions are more than mere play, and are a form of personal identity expression, but this is no indication of transsexualism. Indeed, all information suggests that the path of the transsexual is not one you should take, as it would almost certainly lead to severe unhappiness. It is possible that a partial step towards greater feminine expression might lead to greater happiness, but such an undertaking should be approached with extreme caution.

3.

If you have not already, consider joining any of the thousands of groups devoted to gender play of various varieties. 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 play."

Feminine male? Ugh.

For a biased test made for MtFs that's probably about as masculine as you get. @_@

Is COGIATI Stage 1 masculine male? I should have gotten that instead - I'm a lot more masculine than feminine, but a lot of the answers were really ambiguous/strange. I agree a lot of the classifications of masculinity or femininity based off of certain traits is bologna. (Baloney, bologna...)

The last time I took it I got something like a 180, which is a class 4 probable transexxual. The previous time I took it i got below that in the class 3 range. For my early school years I basically sucked at school all around so I have a hard time answering those questions. The first time I hadn't driven a car yet so I didn't know how to answer those questions either so I guessed. It seems like it is mostly for people that are older. And the question about knowing if some one is having an affair or if some one is secretly disliking you. I don't know the answers to those questions because I am pretty sure that has never happened to me before... I think you should be able to leave some blank that you don't know and then it should take the percentage of what you got right I guess you could say and apply it to the end. Like 0-20% male, 21-40% feminine male, etc. I think that would be at least a little bit more accurate. Idk if that makes any sense to anyone else...

      I tear up at just about anything even remotely sad. Even some sad music can get the water works going. I’m okay with it though. Feels good to be stretching my emotional range.

      I freakin cry over commercials!   Movies and TV series with sad or tear jerking scenes plow me right under.  My wife laughs at me so much over this.   I admit I like the freedom to do so now.  I don’t have to hold it in or hide it anymore.   😭😢😉

      I think you are doing great with your makeup.  I’m very inexperienced but it looks really good to be.   It amazes me that there are still places that still are homophobic.   It’s a bit out of your way but the University of Vermont is extremely tolerant and supportive toward LBGTQ and the pay well too.  Vermont is a wonderful place to transition so we will take you!!!

      Well that sucks. Hopefully you can find another way forward. I don't know what the situation is in Arkansas, but here it's legal to discriminate against trans people. Our colleges are pretty tolerant though. May you find an employer that doesn't suffer from recto-cranial inversion.   Hugs!

      Well, I finally got the talk by my principal due to two calls from unidentified females voicing concerns about me wearing makeup while giving GED tests. He said he personally doesn't care how I choose to express myself. But with attendance being as low as it is, he really doesn't want to create any more variables that might threaten the school's budgetary futures by pushing away new or current students.    I knew it was coming, but I let myself think it'd be much further down the line. Yeah, it hurts, and yes, I'm doing what I've taught myself not to ruminate and spiral back into depression. But dang it...I was finally feeling happy about myself. Oh, well....just keep repeating "progress isn't always linear".

      I always tear up at the end of the movie, “Far and Away”.  The ending pulls on my heartstrings in a happy way.  But recently my wife and I watched “Boy Meets Girl” and for whatever the reason...it hit me like a ton of bricks.  I had a good cry even though it was probably not the most realistic plot line for a movie.   Susan R🌷   LOL, I noticed I had already mentioned “Far and Away” in a previous post on this same thread back in Oct.  oh well!  It’s hard to keep track of all the posts I make.

      That's one of the government's reasons for not putting an X marker on passports, but mostly "it'll cost too much to implement those changes" which is demonstrably incorrect. But personally, I would assume that's just one of the many considerations the individual should make when planning international travel. Some places are hostile, others (like Saudi Arabia) reportedly refuse entry to anyone with an X marker on their passport. So, that's kinda convenient, I guess? Incidentally, I've done some investigating since reading and posting this, and it seems that if your state's drivers license permits an X marker, then your Real ID will, too.  But I know that there are some people with a severe enough level of dysphoria or emotional triggers that having a gender marker on an ID that's different from how they identify/present will cause distress or out them as trans. So, as it stands, it's probably just a trade-off that the individual will have to make for themselves.
