transgender personality - The gender identity terms you need to know - CBS News

Aug 18, 2017 · Gender nonconforming (GNC) is a broader term that can include people with gender dysphoria. But it can also describe people who feel that they are neither only male or only female. A transgender person is not a clone of another transgender person. He or she is different and unique, just as is every other person. Transgender people are those who transgress gender norms of society by attempting to transition into the correct gender into which they should have been born.

Definition. Adults with gender dysphoria may adopt the behavior, clothing, and mannerisms of the gender they experience. They feel uncomfortable being regarded by others as their assigned gender, and have a strong desire to be rid of the primary and sex characteristics of their assigned gender. Meanwhile, "gender identity" refers to an internal sense people have of who they are that comes from an interaction of biological traits, developmental influences, and environmental conditions. This may be male, female, somewhere in between, a combination of both or neither.
