… and now for some fun ... tests and exams …☺
Women and men are quite similar in most categories. It’s usually only the averages that differ significantly, with a huge overlap between the genders. That’s why no test can be an infallible diagnostic tool, telling you what or who you are. In addition, things like gender expression (masculine/feminine behaviour) and brain type (organising/systemising) are not determining gender identity.
The COGIATI (Combined Gender Identity and Transsexuality Inventory)
The Doctor and Fleming Cross-Gender Questionnaire
The Bem Sex Role Inventory (BSRI)
The SAGE test (sex and gender explorer)
The Brain Gender Questionnaire from Channel 4
Simon Baron-Cohen’s tests for brain type
Some general information and test links:
So, after taking all these tests, are you transsexual? The tests can’t tell you, only you can. For some more thinking, Jennifer Reitz has some questions for you at http://www.transsexual.org/provocateur.html. The best definition of what it means to be a transsexual comes as usual from Madeline Wyndzen, which can be found here: http://www.genderpsychology.org/transsexual/meaning.html.
For some more cautious comments and warnings on gender tests, read Andrea James’ take on: http://www.tsroadmap.com/mental/gendertests.html.
 Okay … these tests have to be taken with a pinch of salt, and should not be used to compare individuals … but here are my test results anyway ☺:
 To get a useful result from any psychological test, you have to know who you are. This can be a major difficulty for transsexuals since their identity can be suppressed by living in the closet, living in the wrong gender role and by certain symptoms of gender dysphoria, such as depression. That makes it hard to know yourself, to find out who you are really are. In the end, your identity is what you are like when live openly and comfortably as yourself, free and unrestricted.
