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.

      Just one thing to think about which I have found with leggings Kay . I am UK size so won't quote actual sizes because of the difference but I found that I needed one size larger than my optimum waist size because of the size of my calf muscles.   Tracy

      That was going to be my next thought.   It's pretty difficult to figure out (for me) where to tweak the colours for some of the boxes on the right hand side backgrounds. I was kinda hoping that the Firefox Dark Mode option would resolve most issues.   Ah well, back to the drawing board. 😪
    • Susan R
      To some degree this probably happens to many of us transitioning with and without spouses although I never heard it referred to as a ‘pink fog‘ stage. Obviously, before coming out fully about wanting to transition to female to my wife the topic just was never brought up. Shortly after coming out though, we seemed to talk about nothing else. So much so that we talked about a [future] time when transition, gender, and all of the issues it creates would not be a part of our regular discussion throughout the day. I’m really not sure that will ever happen. Now that we have become quite accustomed to our life as two married women, we no longer worry about it like we once did.  My wife and I find enjoyment with several support groups where gender issues are the main focus. Plus, we are both involved of online trans communities that we really enjoy. It hasn’t got to a point where a ‘pink fog’ has detrimentally affected our lives. If it ever starts to interfere with our life together, I’m sure we would make some changes in our day to day although I’m not sure what those changes would entail.   My Best, Susan R🌷

      Thank you Kay!  My wife and I have been married over 30 years, and more than half of those she has known about, and supported me.  Last year I came out to her fully that there is more to this. i have mentioned to her that I want to go to therapy, but she insists that it don’t need it.  In one of our discussions she mentioned “MTF runs in the family “ (I have a cousin that transitioned many years ago), it may be that she is worried that I will end up going to a therapist and starting the transition that day? When it comes to money, she controls it, and I have learned that I need to ask before spending it or risk her anger. Kay, please let me know how things go with you and your wife and your approach for therapy.  I too don’t want to go behind my wife’s back, but I know that I need therapy.   Thank you Kay ❤️   Janae

      Youre on the right  way  and thats  great  . Just take  this  ONE day at a  time  and dont try to rusch things in the hope things will get better faster.  And whatever you do DONT for one second  think that suicide is  the right  way to go as its NOT TRUST me on this.      And above  all  if you feel bad again DONT be afraid to come back here  and  also seek  help and support from the profetinals if needed  youre NOT alone  Rosalina

      @michelle_kitten Great response and some great advice!! ...I especially like the parts in bold in your well thought out post.
    • KayC
      Wow!  this hits so close to home, its almost as I had written it myself.  Going on 2 years now since coming out to my wife (only), but not really being able to talk about it because it always gets uncomfortable.  I can dress at home (mostly in private) but similar "boundaries" about  going out or going farther .. not really sure I am ready for that yet anyway so its not a big issue so far. I received a similar threat of "leaving" if I transition, but recently she denied she ever said that (I didn't forget), so maybe that is a hopeful sign. I recently made a determination that I need to open the communication again.  Big reason is I want to start therapy, and I don't want to do it behind her back.  I am hoping she doesn't see it as a threat but an opportunity for me to get my arms around my gender identity.  Hopefully it will include her at some point too .. and I feel unless we understand and support each other, it will be difficult to continue without one or both of us being unhappy in this relationship. Thank you Janae for posting this .. I too feel I am fortunate to have found this forum. Wishing you all the best in your journey  
    • Carolyn Marie
      I'm really glad you're feeling less down these days, Rosalina.  It's rarely an easy thing to transition, what with roadblocks and family issues and self confidence issues and everything else.  Just take it one day at a time, and every day that you can stand tall is a good day.  And every day when things look bleak, don't stop trying for better, and know that you can come here and find solace with friends who understand.  Take care.   HUGS   Carolyn Marie

      I missed my morning cup cuz spent the whole night up and spent most the day trying to rest with the neighbors blasting music that was so loud, the house vibrated from the bass. Looks like I got two black eyes, I'm so tired. But need coffee otherwise I start getting a headache. Use to be terrible, drinking up to 5 cups easy. Now I can barely have 2. My gut can only take so much abuse from acid.

      Depression is indeed a beast. Debilitating, paralyzing. Coupled with the shutdown, it makes things difficult. You feel trapped, no way out. Kellysinclair101 I sort of understand. I was homeless in the Boston area, living out of my car, for over a year. You have to have faith in yourself that you can find a way through this. Keep us posted on how you're doing, okay? 《《《 Big hug 》》》 TA

      I have been having difficulty concentrating on things for the past few months. Today I was thinking about this more and it kind of felt like I was in a fog.  So I guess I have heard the term Pink Fog before I suppose, because I went ahead and googled it and came up with this post back in 2009 (oddly I could not find it here, but it looked like it was posted in this discussion group back in September 2009.   “Have many of you ever go through really bad pink fog stages where all you can think about is your gender issues? It seems like every two months or so this strikes me with a vengeance and I struggle to keep everything together. I am going through a pink fog phase at the moment and it is bitter sweet, I love the feelings and emotions I am experiencing and yet at the same time feel I am being smothered by a heavy weight of frustration.   I am struggling to keep on top of this and carry on with my daily activities, it's not so bad during the day when I have work etc to distract me but at night it is more difficult. Have you had these feelings and if so what do you do to manage them? My wife is very supportive but I can't talk to her about this as it makes her uncomfortable - I have already tried. It is so confusing and I just wished I could find a middle ground whereby I can be Rachael whenever the urge is there without being obsessed by the whole thing. Normally I am okay with being transgendered - love it in fact, but during these periods I find it a struggle as it makes me feel vulnerable and a bit lost.  “   Wow.  Yes, I couldn’t have described it better, or said it better, - same thing exactly but more frequently than every 2 months.  I have been dressing for the past 50 years. I found this forum a little over a year ago, and it has helped immensely knowing that i am not alone.  Everyone has been very supportive.   Things were going very well for me (my wife was supportive it seemed) until last October when my wife one day out of the blue told me she would leave me if I transitioned to a woman.  I was devastated as I thought things between us were going rather well.  (In retrospect- that week it was cold outside so I took advantage of that opportunity to wear a heavy coat to hide the fact I was wearing a bra and ran a few errands.  Maybe  my C cup was not so obscured) We have had some good discussion over the past couple of weeks and she told me she would have left me by now if she was unhappy.  So i am happy about that. She has some hard boundaries- no going out of the house wearing a bra, and I need to wear out some of my clothes before getting new ones.  I do love to shop, and have more bras and panties than she does.  She has a hard time wrapping her head around that, and has asked many times why i want to wear a bra when she hates it. I have tried to explain how it feels the right thing to be doing - it just feels right, (better than how I feel when I don’t have any breasts/bra) and when I look in the mirror I like what I see, but I think for a cis person they just don’t understand.     Probably way too much in this post - but if anyone has any of these feelings mentioned above how do you manage them?   Thanks for reading.   Hugs Janae

      @Rosalina101011 This is great news.😁 As you know, when starting out with your regimen it can be a little ‘up and down’ so just be on the look out for that. I periodically feel the ‘ups and downs’ but at least I’m more aware of the emotional changes now. I’ve learned when I need to change up whatever I’m doing to keep myself from being dragged down. Just changing my immediate environment is sometimes enough to help. But uplifting or relaxing music seems to help very quickly if I can’t drop what I’m doing.   Good Luck, Susan R🌷

      Odd dietary urges on estrogen? Not so much Estrogen but when I started Progesterone a year or so ago, it changed my cravings a bit. I find I have to fight my cravings of anything with vinegar and garlic. I used to be a very strict ‘blue cheese on my salad‘ girl but this last year I can’t get enough Caesar salad dressing on my salads now.
    • Rosalina101011
      I went back to  hormones  Pallets about three weeks ago. I seem to be doing better. I don’t have suicide thoughts like I used to. I haven’t had depression for a while. I have a very slow climb up where I used to be. I’m actually starting to like myself a little bit, not much but I would Settle for one percent. wish me luck everyone still here on this earth
