lol I took this test like 4 times in my life. Last time I got like a 310 but this time it dropped me to a 290, sigh my girl score went down :P curiously i just don't care anymore. once I took this test like once a week just so it would tell me I'm a ts and make me feel better XD. every time I've taken this test it's told me I was a class four transsexual lol.

Sara,

Like it told you something you didn't know.You are a TS,but you knew that in your heart of hearts all ready didn't you?The Cogiati is fun,but it is just that,fun.We know who we are,don't need a test

to prove it.(smile)

I have taken this test a couple times, once as i was starting therapy, my score then was 190, i just retook it was 220 COGIATI classification FOUR, PROBABLE TRANSSEXUAL.

Took the S.A.G.E. test recently my Raw Score was: 615, which indicates that overall you are Feminine. Says I'm a Male to Female Transsexual, either post-operative or in transition.

Also tool the Personal DNA Test, my Femininity was 78 out of 100, my Masculinity was 26 out of 100.

I been in transition almost a year now, and even though these tests are just for fun they seem pretty accurate.

255 - COGIATI classification FOUR, PROBABLE TRANSSEXUAL

some of the questions on there were so... neautral in everyway that i find it hard to understand how that would affect a score. but either way, im not surprised by my result. if i had to classify myself, i would say that same. There are no complete certaintys in my life at the moment so to say that i WAS a transexual would be jumping the gun

good test :D

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.

My test results have been around 290 every time I have done this teat . Now I am working on the courage to go farther in my life.Brenda Lee

Your COGIATI result value is: 135 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 have taken this test a few times and I always got classification four.

It's true; in essence I am female but I am not transsexual. Transgender is the right label for me. =)

This is the third time I took the test. I graded out as -20. Classification 3, Androgyne. I would be a third sex in some cultures. Though equally comfortable as both genders, I prefer the feminine. I am a transgenderist.

I think I got a "probable transsexcual" score last time I took it, I can't really remember the exact number though. I thought that was kind of wierd though because there's no "probable" about it.

LOL I wanted to take that test then I realized it was for MtF's

I did take the S.A.G.E. test though:

Your Raw Score is: -365, which indicates that overall you are Androgynous

Your appearance is Androgynous

Your brain processes are mostly that of a Androgynous person.

You appear to socialize in a masculine manner.

You believe you have major conflicts about your gender identity.

You indicated your were born Female.

ANALYSIS:

Female to Male Transsexual, either post-operative or in transition

NOTES:

Your answers indicate you have altered your physical appearance to look like the opposite sex.

Your Answers indicate your psychological state has likely prevailed since you were quite young.

I took this test and a number of others about a year ago (and maybe a few years before that!), and most the results came out as I suspected. Of course, I'm also a good test taker, and I can see through a lot of the validation type questions - like when they ask you the same thing, 2 or 3 different ways in different parts. So a lot of my results depend on how I'm feeling. And how I think my different personas would respond. I usually start by being in my male mode, but then I quickly realize that and switch to my female mode. And yes, we are slightly different.

Back in High School we all had to take this Vocational Inventory test (ex. would you rather dance on a stage or rope cattle) and a friend of mine for each page of the test (about 20-30 questions per page) chose a different occupation to concentrate on. They made him re-take the test. Today he is a successful lawyer. I 'knew' what I was going to be, so it didn't matter what I really liked, I would opt for the one closest to what I was aiming for.

Anyway, they're nice fun tests, and maybe can give you something to think about. I just don't put too much stock in something this open and generic.

Interesting test.

I didn't understand where some of the questions were going, but some were obvious.

I got a 505.

But then I came out early, transitioned early, and have been very happy with my gender for a very long time.

I like to think that the result wouldn't matter to me, but it did somehow. The results suggested I see a gender therapist. I have never seen one, but I don't think I need to since I am decades post-op and very happy.

Interesting test, and fairly well put together. Confirming questions, subtle differences in language and meaning, overall good stuff.

Not really sure what it means in the end though, although some of the questions I think were geared towards a more stereotypical girl. Like the walking in the woods one, or anything with an outdoor activity that didn't involve pretend. I knew many a cis girl that loved to climb trees, build forts, and play in the stream and mud. I dunno, we all take our own paths I suppose. ;)

I just did the test and got 365 "COGIATI classification FOUR, PROBABLE TRANSSEXUAL".

I have some opinions I'd like to share about the test and the result:

Over 15 pages of all-bold text is annoying and eye-tyring. I'm putting this all in bold just to illustrate the point, and it's just one or two lines.

The choices for some questions are not well-thought enough. Most obvious example, the one about parking: I do not drive, what I am supposed to answer there? Another example, the "Pick the choice that most closely represents the age at which your gender first became an issue or a concern to you." Wouldn't a text-field to type in a number be more exact? If my answer were "about age 6", should I select 5 or 7? At least a hint about whether to round up or down would have been useful.

The "Visualize the following entirely in your head" is, IMO, very badly worded. The thing starts at horitzontal position, then rotates 90º. If we repeat the same rotation three times, we get 90º + 3x90º = 360º = 1 full circle. So the thing ends horitzontal again. The choices give for granted that it ends up vertical (either of the edges is on top or on bottom). This, plus the vague "end over end" phrase, makes me assume it's taking three 180º rotations, rather than 90º each. Maybe it's just that I'm not a native English speaker, but I missed an option to answer "Do you know what are you asking?".

Another one: "It is grade school. The teacher gives you a gold star on your work for excellence. What is it for?" There were no "gold star" things on my school, but I could honestly mark any of the options. I always studied maths on my own from my brother's books (he's two years older!) and even helped him with his homework; I'm good enough with grammar and spelling (may make some mistakes on English, but I rarely miss something on my native languages); and I had won several school poetry contests. What I am supposed to pick here?

I could go on with many other questions. Now, about the results: it says that I'm probably transexual; and I guess the test is probably right. Furthermore, it says: "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." Of course I have some masculine traits: I have always been expected to act as a male, and have been treated as such, for over two decades.

Another issue with the test: it seems to be taking math and geometry skills as something inherently masculine. In my case, these skills come from a higher than average IQ (I'm not trying to show off nor anything, just clearing things up). For what I have seen, higher IQs are much more common among women than among men. So I think this part of the test is biased and probably adds more noise than precission to the final result.

Finally, I must admit that the actions recommended are good advice. I think they are mostly obvious, but the idea of trying limited hormone treatment (either short-time or only the testosterone suppressers part) is something I had never thought about: I might mention the idea to my therapist on our next session.

In general, an entertaining distraction, with some design issues, which told me almost nothing new. But still fun anyway.

    • DeeDee
      Okay, I can sort of see what you are trying to say but would have to look into it more to understand more. Thank you for taking the time to explain it to me. 😊 I don't want to hijack the thread, so I hope you find the answers you are looking for regarding pronouns.
    • Tetris
      Yes, I identify very strongly with databases. The concept of them, particularly the plaintext .csv database. So I don't necessarily identify as like... a literal table, ya know. More like the *concept* of a database. What a database stands for, what it's used in, the structure of the database. All of these... resonate with me in a way I can't describe. When I see a well formatted data file, in a way I can't help but to see myself in it. It's really hard to describe. I wish I could.  MOGAI (I forget what it stands for) genders are the spectrum of genders that are the ones 4-chan typically tries to troll. The ones that people say are "made up" and are "Tumblr genders."  For example if you search digigender on Deviant Art, you'll get a flag and a description as part of a network of other MOGAI genders. Digigender is best described to be a digital gender, one where your identity resonates deeply (or you are kin with) something digital like a file format (in my case, a .csv), email, software, or anything else digital-related. 
    • DeeDee
      I'm sorry Tetris I understand enjoying computers and programming and even being able to be more of yourself online than in real life, but I do not understand, your gender is comma separated values?  What are MOGAI-type genders? Genuinely curious as I have never heard of them. 
    • Tetris
      Hi so I made an account on here when I first came out as trans but didn't really care to continuously check this forum. I'm bigger on discords than I am forums (I think I'm on the discord too).  So I know that MOGAI-type genders are controversial but I identify as digigender. My gender is actually the .csv filetype (really, more generally, a database, as I find solace in collecting and indexing data, and find extreme peace in processing data, all the way down to my core--I really resonate with data structures). I've decided to use my own set of pronouns, file/file/files/files/fileself (File is a database. Data collection means a lot to file. It is files wishes to be seen as a data structure. One of files interest is programming. File has taken it up to fileself to learn as much about programming as file possibly could).    For others that use their own made up pronoun set, how do you get others to start using it? I'm really scared to tell people to use these pronouns else nobody would take me seriously.

      Thanks for making me notice what i left out   I forgot to mention how its a very Emotional ,Psychological and  Physical process that lasts a long period of time. They do not prepare you for that. Thats for you to understand and accept. They just give you the tools to assist in the process. You are gonna have some emotional and stressful times during your transition. The treatment will help. But not completly. You need to not only be emotionally strong but to also be very prepared for sacrifices you may have to make. Do not be fooled if its painted as all puppies and fluffy kittens. There are rough times to. Forums like this are here to help you understand all the options and what to expect. Preperation is always the best way to move forwald. However always remember the desion is ultimatly yours. The doctors will help but it is yours life to control.

      Wait a while We’ll figure out our lives  Hold your breath The wolves are in disguise  Don’t need your dirty hands  Don’t need to take a chance  Go stand in behind the fence  Can you feel that bleeding neck  Can you feel that now    Close the door  Take a walk around  Hold your breath  In these rivers you might drown  All alone you live inside  It’s alone you came and went  In the shadows the bounty rides A love that makes no sense  It makes no sense...   You could beat a cat in the rain  Losing all that you gain Working hard but you know  All things will change    The world it’ll spin and stand trial  While they spit and draw blood  from your smile  We’ll all make it back to the stars  But it’s ours for a little while    Oo oo ooo ooo ooooo Oo oo ooo ooo ooooo   Brace your heart  In this rich and colored plinth  Hold your breath  It’s a key and a killer in your hands All I want is bells and whistles  All I want is fancy dreams  And you live and learn  And soon discern Nothing’s ever what it seems  Never what it seems    Beat a cat in the rain  Losing all that you gain Working hard but you know  All things will change    The world it’ll spin and stand trial  While they spit and draw blood  from your smile  We’ll all make it back to the stars  But it’s ours for a little while    Oo oo ooo ooo ooooo Oo oo ooo ooo ooooo

      Belated good morning. The fall weather has been simply delightful all day. No rain in sight, but plenty of nice weather. I’ve been extra busy helping the parents lately. My dad is being more foolish than usual, turning down help after asking for help, I can only do so much. My mom can be even worse at times, but I guess that goes with being old. The problem is, they have been this way their entire life, and now it’s reared it’s ugly head. They didn’t make plans and didn’t listen to me decades ago, and now they are paying the price.   my kids are doing well, we played a good round of D&D Sunday, and hopefully we can play more really soon. My son is becoming a really good DM, and it’s fun playing with them and their girlfriends.

      WThe trick or treating part of Halloween will be enjoyed with two 5 year olds and their mommie. There is a neighborhood across the way that is a goo area for kids to enjoy the celebration.    I dont know what’s going on in my apartment building. I’m hoping the neighbors have something cool planned. There are a lot of parties going on in Hillcrest of course. There is always Balboa Park and downtown, and the haunted houses.    Since i I haven’t presented in public yet, I’m excited, cause I might finally have enough courage to muster to venture out in the neighborhood.

      Lots of good information here and I appreciate all of you sharing your journey. Right now I think I'm at that questioning stage and perhaps trying to find ways to show myself I'm not ttans.

      Hello Gabby!  (is that a new name?)  As you have read the recent thread concerning porn, etc. you can see that it is a diversion and "red herring" related to gender issues.   Also don't be drawn in by the "I like women or I like men" thing.  Gender and Sexuality are two different things.  Flip flopping is normal.  Our feelings on any given issue will change regularly given enough time involved in it.      Ok you know self medicating is bad.  Even getting regular check ups is not enough as I don't imagine you know what to look for, and there can be complications from certain levels in your body that you don't understand.  Start to get clean!  See your doctor and tell them what is happening.  They won't bite.  Ask them to legally prescribe and monitor your lab work.     As to not seeing the woman in the mirror?  This takes time.  I was two years into this journey before I consistently saw her.  There is certainly a mental element to this.  Once I started thinking like a woman it was easier to see me.  You are still on the outside looking in.  Faceapp and the like are fun but can drive you crazy.    Jani

      So after reading a ton I find that I’m not not ok with where I am.  Like most I have no clue why I feel like I do and do I understand what I am. Neither physically mentally or sexually.   The community is so vast and has so many descriptors that it’s hard to pick just one you may fit in.  Just trying to understand them all is a chore.   I have read of those who want to be a women. I do too.  Badly. If given enough money and time I have little doubt I would be there.  I know what I want but not what I am.  Why I am the way I am.  Feel sexuality towards a variety of women.  Sometimes men.   I’ve read of those who question this being a fetish or a dysphoria    I too have questioned this.  I have had strong desires to be nothing but a women then after “release” I feel dirty ashamed.  I say this on cue from another forum member being brave enough to mention her attraction to certain porn.  I am too.  All sorts.   I find myself extremely attracted to women and more so to trans women pre surgery.  I don’t feel gay still being in a male body living mostly as a male but sometimes I am more then curious.   ive been labeled bisexual in the stupid little online tests.  Maybe I am.  I don’t know.   I flip flop from day to day.  One day I’m ok with being a male.  Living as a husband and a man with all my male straight friends.   The next Day I cry all day not being the women I know I am.  I hate to say the women inside but I don’t know how else to say it.  It’s me either way.   im lucky that I have not gone through depression or worse. Hurting myself.  I have always just dealt with it.  It is what it is attitude.  The deep desires still inside aching to get out but the fear keeping them in.The fear. It’s the worse.   I will admit for the first time ever,to anyone, to self medicating HRT over the years.  Stopping and starting over and over.  Admittedly due to lack of money.  Secretly seeking doctors appointments, as a guy, but “checking” on my health and blood work for any signs of danger.  I know.  I know.  It’s not safe or right.  I’ve read so much on the dangers that I’m afraid to cross the street or eat sugar.   But it’s my only release to be myself.  I feel better knowing I am doing something,anything, for “her”.  Maybe subconsciously I hope to be caught or questioned. Having no choice but to admit my inner self is there.  I both dread and look forward to being given no choice.  Though I’m so careful to not screw up.  I have small breasts, definitely an A but pushing a strong B in certain bras.  However easily hidden with compression tanks to look more like pecks then breast. Also luckily small genitalia so hiding my bit n pieces is very easy.   My biggest depressor if I was to name just one is I just don’t see the women in the mirror.   That is the one thing that hits me hard.  I can’t find myself when I stare into the mirror.  Cry?  Definitely.   However, just today I tried a fun little app that can convert a selfie to many things.  Older different hair etc.  Of coarse my goal was to see a gender conversion.  I was blown away.  I even tried it with several pics.  The amazing thing was I looked exactly like older versions of two of my natural daughters.  I’d post a pic of the app conversation but don’t know how yet.   but these pics gave me a glimpse of the women inside.  She is beautiful and I look forward to her being out one day.   ok. I’ve run on n on.  Sorry.   im so gabby.  
    • Jani
      What an intense process @Maid In Bedlam.  Don't get depressed about this @Blackpulse as it is a defined process and it is paid for by NHS.  We don't have this in the US.  We're on our own to find care and unless we have insurance (and they cover TG care) we pay for it too.     I imagine you could use some support about now so please join in the discussion here.  You'll find a group of caring people to converse with.    Cheers, Jani
