The Awareness Quotient™ is a measure of your Dynamic Intelligence, which is Intention, Awareness, Choice and Response™. It is based on the PhD research of Dr Darren Stevens and it measures how you emotionally and cognitively react in the moment from either a position of habit or awareness. The more self-aware you are, the greater your capacity to think and respond in the moment, and thus the greater range in your capability. In the future, it is hoped that "competence" will be known by another name: Dynamic Intelligence!
Constructed Development Theory is about how aware we are of how and why we think in a particular way, not what we think. It measures our “epistemic stance”, which is to say that it brings to awareness those unconscious patterns we do not know are directing our thinking and behaving. To map this to existing psychological theories, we are effectively creating the links between meta-cognition, personal construct psychology and stage development. This creates a measure for what could be considered Adult Meta-Cognition, which has not been done before.
However, by invoking the four pillars of CDT (IACR) we ground this new theory in psychology, and move it beyond the theories mentioned by virtue of the capacity of the Awareness Quotient to be the measure of self-awareness for the client. As you consider these points now, think about how useful it will be to be more aware of how you construct "You" in the moment, and how important it is to be able to choose to construct yourself differently.
