pandrogynous

blending adjective
Embodying such a blend of cultures, attitudes, and styles that one's own identity becomes indecipherable. This is much more broad than androgyny, and extends past gender.
 
After he took that soul-searching trip into Eurasia, Mark became so pandrogynous that I didn't even recognize him when he returned.
Etymology : pan- (Greek prefix "all") + androgyny (Latin andro (man) + gyn (woman)) + -ous (adjective ending for nouns)
