  • Sample
    1,398 subjects completed the AQ Profile and health survey questions.


Part A: Participants answer 12 self-assessment items on a range of health related factors, including depression, energy, diet, happiness, exercise, and overall health. The questions were analyzed independently and combined to form an overall Health Score.

Part B: 789 subjects successfully completed both pre-and-post measures of the AQ Profile, as well as the self-paced AQ online training program to assess related changes on their AQ and CORE (Control, Ownership, Reach, Endurance) scores.

Part A Results

Health Scores were highly correlated with AQ Profile scores. Results showed that all 12 Health Scores were significantly correlated with AQ and with each of its scales. Correlations with the total Health Scale ranged from 0.154 for Ownership to 0.305 for Control.

The AQ score was correlated 0.328 with the total Health Score.

People in the top 10% on AQ had average total Health Scores a full standard deviation higher than the people in the lowest 10% on AQ.

Part B Results

AQ Online Training resulted in significant improvements in AQ and all of its dimensions, C, O, R, and E. From pre- to post-training, on average, scores rose 24.6 points on AQ. This increase is more than a full standard deviation, a statistically significant improvement considered a “large effect.”
