COGIATI (FTM edition) Test

Developed by:

Narrowly targeted to the Female-to-Male Pre-Operative, Pre-Transitional individual who is currently unsure of what they really want or who they really are.

The COGIATI is designed to help this type of individual specifically to begin to solidify a basic stance from which to seek additional assistance.

The COGIATI exists to help the unsure come to some sort of grasp of things in order to begin to solve their issues. It can also be used to confirm or question existing self definitions.


The COGIATI, as it currently stands, is an amateur attempt, and cannot be considered as medically or scientifically valid.

I took the test, got category 3, to be told I'm Androgyne which doesn't give a break down of how close I am, I took the male test, and at least I got -120 meaning I'm actually closer to male than female yet not close enough to be anything
