How Is Your XQ?

Axiology is the study of values. XQ is short for aXiology Quotient. We each have a unique valuing pattern developed over a lifespan of experiences that interacts with our personality and our life choices and ability to make decisions and solve questions. XQ refers to the value we place on people, things or ideas. Tracking this value pattern allows psychologists and axiologists to design scientifically backed coaching, counseling and organizational solutions for individuals, leaders, groups interested in discovering a path for personal and professional development. 
XQ is based on the value theory of Robert S Hartman, founder of formal axiology.


XQ analysis

An XQ profile accurately depicts human behavior from analyzing how individuals perceive and value the people, things and ideas around them. With more than six quadrillion  possible results from one assessment, an XQ analysis provides adequate resistance against personality typing, stereotyping and generalizations.


Value profiles are routinely employed by organizational psychologists and developers to recruit, select, train and develop personnel. Some profiles target ethical conduct or leadership capacity, while others map personal strengths, weaknesses and have been used to detect various levels of clinical pathology (Pomeroy, 2005)


XQ profiles create out-of-box thinking in education, finance, sport, business, health and personal growth applications. It is perfect for coaches and counsellors and helping professionals. It is a valid and reliable instrument for designing interventions for personal and professional growth.


XQ Research in human value system has been highly predictive of behavior. From an individual’s XQ profile we can accurately judge their suitability for job prospects, where certain strengths and weaknesses lie and how they might perform in groups or teams. Researchers have uncovered distinct valuing patterns in populations such as leaders and prisoners.,  Personal  research in individual differences have discovered unique patterns that can not be projected or duplicated. Research is reported annually in the Journal of Formal Axiology: Theory and practice.
