‘The Consciousness Quotient’: introducing the consciousness experience as a research variable in psychological assessment

By Ovidiu Brazdau

Since 2005 I been developing the Consciousness Quotient Theory and the CQ Inventory (CQ-i ©), as a part of my PhD thesis. This process took me eight years, while trying to ascertain a way to identify and scientifically measure the so-called “aware/conscious behaviors”. CQ-i was developed through 14 studies on a population of 6,800 individuals. The CQ-i beta version was first released in 2008, and presented the following year at the Toward a Science of Consciousness conference. Since then, it has been updated many times in order to become a very reliable and valid assessment instrument that measures consciousness as a psychological variable.

The final beta version was released in autumn 2014, after a study on its content validity. We are now repeating the validation studies for this version, before publishing it.
