The goal was to evaluate the comprehensiveness and representativeness of the content - whether the lists of the traits comprising the CQ adequately co...

The previous validation of the CQ-i includes its administration in adults only; thus, in order to determine whether CQ-i can be administered in adolescents as well, the difficulty levels of the items were analysed using a sca...

... Between 2016 and 2019, a series of exploratory studies using the paper-pencil version of the CQ-i questionnaire were undertaken by researchers from the Dayalbagh Educational Institute and other organizations in India, providing more data for understanding the measurement (Das, 2016;Kumar and Singh, 2016;Pyari and Srivastava, 2016;Sahni and Kumar, 2016;Misra et al., 2017;Kumar and Pawar, 2018;Upadhyay et al., 2018;Nigam and Misra, 2019;Saxena et al., 2019). ...
... Owing to this in-depth meta-research on conceptual convergence of conscious experiences, the CQ construct was developed using a sample of more than 300 traits, skills, and abilities that were later translated into 287 items and situations. To establish the content validity of the CQ-i index of conscious experiences, the list was analyzed by a group of experts (Brazdau, 2015;Brazdau and Ahuja, 2016). The goal was to evaluate the comprehensiveness and representativeness of the content, whether the lists of traits that compose the inventory adequately cover conscious experience, with no irrelevant content included (Newton, 2013). ...
... Jones and Brazdau provide an overview of leader awareness as a theory that allows leaders to carry out their leadership based on patterns that occur in the environment and leadership that is carried out is able to provide solutions to the problems faced for the common good (Jones & Brazdau, 2003). Klopčič's exposure to awareness leadership is the presence of responsibility which is carried out by the leader towards members in full (Klopčič,2009). ...
... One of the concepts related to spirituality that has emerged in psychology in recent decades, and whose relationship with ME has so far not been studied, is spiritual intelligence. Searching for research in such scientific databases as Science-Direct, EBSCOhost, ProQuest, SAGE Publications, Cambridge Core, and Clinical Key, only four resources have been found with both concepts mentioned (Penn et al., 2021;Brazdau, 2015;Hunt, 2007;Levasseur, 2011). It seems important to study this relationship because the definition of spiritual intelligence already includes the same characteristics as ME. ...

... Between 2009 and 2013, a series of criterion-related researches were undertaken. The main conclusion of these exploratory studies was that conscious experience can be scientifically treated like any other psychological variable, and that it is possible to introduce conscious experience as a variable in psychological assessment (Brazdau & Opariuc, 2014). The psychological assessment framework developed during the exploratory researches was the foundation for the in-depth construct's operationalization and the items' development. ...

Timeline of the CQ-i development studies.PsiWorld 2012 Conference paper published in Procedia -Social and Behavioral Sciences: Consciousness Quotient Inventory improvement: Qualitative study using cognitive interviewing approach(Brazdau et al., 2013) All items were revised so that the statements would refer to behaviors instead of attitudes The Likert scale was modified to a six-level frequency scaleThe content validity was evaluated by a panel of 25 experts. Consequently, 40 items were excluded, and 27 items were re-worded New terminological clarifications were developed to operationalize the CQ construct better. ...
