Hmm, did the COGIATI test, well was sort of told I just had to give it a go.

Not the sort of thing I would bother with , but gave it a go.....well the cool kids told me too & I have little free will.

Odd thing this one. Maybe not the run of the mill internet test, but still pretty thin.
I with my very narrow mind could could see this one was being steered into asking the same 5 or so similar questions over and over. Quite what is supposed to be attained by doing this I'm not sure. Maybe a verification of previous answers ?
It just seems a little odd to base a personality test, all be it a fun one on such a narrow band of questioning.

Still , I answered & as honestly as I could think to. Al low score in the scope of things.
Not sure that I can read much into it, or take it for more than the face value that it deserved.

Result below, just suggests I'm a bit grey.

Your COGIATI result value is: 95 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.

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.

Are these things worth anything to anyone ?, other than the fun of them, because if someone out there is putting some value to this kind of thing then I suppose I should find it a bit of a worry.

Well, considering how that test is used by doctors to determine transsexual status for possible SRS- I would be worried if it wasn't taken seriously. To some extent anyway.

When I took it I got 120.. which fit me perfectly because I am an actual androgyne.
