THE FRANCK TEST FOR GENDER IDENTITY: CORRELATION WITH OCCUPATION AND LONG-TERM STABILITY OF SCORE IN NORMAL MEN
Abstract:The projective Franck Drawing Completion Test (FDCT) is assumed to reflect the unconscious gender identity. A community sample of 42 men aged 20–34 years completed the test. A correlation was found between high (independent) occupational positions and masculine scores of she FDCT After seven years a re-test was performed by 27 men. This yielded an acceptable individual long-term stability in particular of the clinically important gender-opposite scores. The FDCT appears to relate to aspects of masculinity such as activity, expansion, and outward social commitment. As the test is truly non-obvious to the subject it is useful in the clinical investigation of for instance persons seeking sex reassignment.
