October 5, 2018 9:27 am

The CQ-i is a composite psychological construct based on a list of traits, skills and abilities that describe the conscious experience. The test evaluates the frequency of various behaviours and the usage of conscious skills and awakeness abilities, providing a detailed description of the conscious awareness experiences. The CQ-i is composed of seven main dimensions: physical, emotional, cognitive, social-relational, self, inner growth and spiritual. An additional factor, the “perceptual presence”, is currently under development.

Some insights from the CQ-i development research

We analyzed a preliminary sample of N=1312 people who completed the CQ-i online assessment. For various reasons, we decided to remove some items from the final CQ-i version. But, the results are interesting, e.g. “I think that the world is just (fair) for everyone.” (No: 52% / Yes: 48%). This item was initially developed to explore a “western spirituality” bias. Kids who die of starvation in Africa don’t “deserve” to die, and the world is not “fair” for them.

The goal was to evaluate the comprehensiveness and representativeness of the content – whether the lists of the traits comprising the CQ adequately cover conscious experience, with no irrelevant content included. After developing the construct, the content validity was evaluated by a panel of 25 experts.

The CQ-i was revised twice in the light of the newest literature on conscious experience (Study #1) and using Willis’ cognitive interviewing methodology (1999), by conducting individual cognitive interviews, the CQ-i (Study #2) was further improved. As a result, the format and the content of all 62 of the items have been significantly improved.
