There's an online test that you can fill out which will give you an indication of where you are on the transgender scale from bloke to babe, it's the Combined Gender Identity and Transsexuality Inventory (COGIATI). I completed it a while back but thought I'd do it again having been reminded of it's existence on Tranny International (TINT) by a post in the forum.

So here's the results:
Your COGIATI result value is: 70 Which means that you fall within the following category:


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.

Suggestions For Action:
Your situation is a little tricky in our current society, but not tremendously so, depending on your geographic location.
The suggestions for your circumstance are not overly complicated.

  1. If you have any comfortability about your gender expression, some slight degree of 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. As an androgynous being, both genders, and both sexes are natural to your expression. Permanent polarization in either direction might bring significant unhappiness. It is not recommended that you go through a complete transsexual transformation. You might find a partial transformation of value, if you find yourself more attracted overall to the feminine. You are more likely a transgenderist, than a transsexual. It is recommended that you recognize that your gender issues are real, but that extreme action regarding them should be viewed with great 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.
So there you have it, I'm androgynous at least in my head. Not entirely surprising, I'm a Gemini after all - hehe.

Having read a few bits and bobs about COGIATI, it's not highly regarded as being an exact science and I certainly found myself having to think about the questions with a what are they trying to achieve here perspective. It's not far off for me I don't think but some other people that tried it on TINT seemed to have mixed results.
