Explore Your Conscious Experience
The Consciousness Quotient is a composite psychological construct, including traits, skills, and abilities that allow us to explore and optimize the conscious experience. The Consciousness Quotient Inventory (CQ-i) is an in-depth exploration of your conscious experience. It evaluates the frequency of various behaviors, attitudes, and attentional styles, as well as the usage of conscious skills, awareness, and the capacity to ‘feel awake and alive,’ providing a complex exploration of conscious experience.

The Consciousness Quotient Inventory was developed through 18 studies across 17 years (2003–2020).

Per the American Psychological Classification, the CQ-i is a Level B test. To find out more about the CQ-i validity, reliability, and psychometric properties, please visit our CQ-i Repository.
