We analyzed a sample of N=1312 people, who completed the CQ-i online assessment in the last year. For various reasons, we decided to remove these items from the final CQ-i version, to be released by the end of 2016. Although the sample is skewed toward a higher CQ (from our observations, most of the respondents are interested in personal development or already working with themselves), the results are interesting.
"In this study, we explore the relationship between ones level of consciousness and intensity of pro environmental behavior through Consciousness Quotient Inventory (CQ-i, Brazdau) and Environmental Attitudes Inventory (EAI, Milifont & Duckitt)."

An experimental group was trained one hour per session, 3 days per week for 20 weeks, with a set of yoga exercises that included a brief lecture on yoga, 7 yogasanas (Siddhasan, Sarvangasan, Bhujangasan, Paschimottanasan, Padahastasan, Ardhamatsyendrasan and Shavasan) and a meditation based on sound, as trained in the oriental philosophy of Saints (Radhasoami Faith). The results showed a significant increase in the CQ scores, after the intervention. The study was conducted by Dr. Sona Ahuja from the Dayalbagh Educational Institute, Agra, India.

The study was a non-experimental correlation study which was conducted on 150 students (75 graduates, 75 post graduates) of Faculty of Education, Dayalbagh Educational Institute, Agra, Uttar Pradesh, India. Results indicated a significant positive correlation between academic achievement and CQ of the students at the two educational levels at the university. These findings confirm a previous study in a different culture (Ecological University of Bucharest, Romania), indicating that CQ-i may have a cross-cultural predictive validity.

Executive functions including mental abilities such as, working memory, reasoning ability, problem solving, inhibitory control, task flexibility and cognitive flexibility are significant factors for students' learning and academic achievement. This empirical study underlines the correlation and causal relationship between consciousness and two important dimensions of executive functioning - cognitive flexibility and self-regulation.

The present empirical study was designed to explore the relationship between the leadership approach of teacher trainees and their level of consciousness. A descriptive survey was conducted on 100 teacher trainees (both male & female in the ratio of 1:1). The level of consciousness of teacher trainees was assessed using Consciousness Quotient Inventory (CQ-i).

This study specifically aimed to find out the consciousness quotient and intrapersonal and interpersonal relationship skills of participants prior to and after exposure to transformative consciousness exercises. The intervention was designed using the Transformative Consciousness Modules developed by Stephen Wolinsky. The sessions were conducted for 4,5 hours, once a week, for 8 weeks. The results showed that this type of intervention don't produce the necessary impact to increase the CQ of the participants.
“Life has a rhythm, it’s constantly moving. The word for rhythm (used by the Malinke tribes ) is FOLI. It is a word that encompasses so much more than drumming, dancing or sound. It’s found in every part of daily life.”
“In this Documentary, will be addressed ways of life that are parallel to society as we know it. We will closely follow the eco-village Cabrum, a recent community in northern Portugal; Cooperativa Integral Catalana, in Barcelona, which practices self-management with its own coin – the Eco; and finally, the self-sustaining community – Tamera – also located in Portugal.”

Customer experience is a continuous and conscious process that happens on multiple levels. Implementing a plan that focuses on conscious experiences can be daunting exercise because of the complexity and simultaneous demands for top priority. By focusing on consciousness and the customer experience, the organization must look at itself as a complex body of people, processes and technologies.
What people say about the experience of taking the CQ-i: "Yes yes yes! Finally, someone understands me!"; "It's something called the soul, right? Let it live unbridled"; "Every. Other. Day. I question the absolute lunacy of how can I possibly exist. .. Oh God, it's too much for me to handle"; "And this is exactly what people value and love about me most, brutal honesty and the awkwardness that comes with it ! Yay me :}"
