The majority personal behaviors are determined by our concept or can be said that personal behavior will be appropriate with personal ways in considering and judging themselves. A basic component of individual concept is sex role identity which constitutes conceptualism of masculinity and feminism: how the person can adapt with beliefs which are approved by public deal with characteristics appropriate for man and women (Burns, 1993). Transsexual is person with the physic as man but he has desire to be woman so in his interaction with the environment, transsexual shows attitude and behavior which are not appropriate with his genital physic.

This recourse has goal to know the self-concept of transsexual and to know the factors with influence the self-concept of transsexual. The subjects here are three man who have characteristics as follows: a). who consider himself as a woman b) who is often or ever contact with transsexual c.) who is in early-middle-age (18-40 years), physic and psychology changes which accompany lack of reproductive ability (Hurlock, 1980) d.) show another sex identity continuously at least 2 years.

2. Self-judgment physically, the subject decides to show. Himself as woman consciously and available in the environment when entry the grown step of adult (16-18 years), judge themselves as woman, have awareness that transsexual have different sexual with the other.
3. Self-judgment morally, the subject considered that responsibility of his constitutes his privacy. Because life as transsexual is the choice of personal subject.
4. Self-judgment socially, judge a man can be sexual relation otherwise a woman just can be a friend, he tends to feel uncomforted interaction in environment, he likes if the environment treat him as woman.

There are factors which is influence transsexual to build their personal concept:

2. An external factor, the environment usually unaware with the strange
