Athletic Intelligence Quotient

Athletic Intelligence Quotient (AIQ)

The Athletic Intelligence Quotient (AIQ) was developed as a tool to measure cognitive abilities that determine athletic success and failure–while providing an in-depth and sport-specific analysis of each score. The four main components of the AIQ are visual processing, memory, reaction time, and processing speed. The Athletic Intelligence Quotient is a unique psychology assessment because it was designed specifically for athletes. Unlike other tools, the AIQ does not rely on self-report or reports from others; instead, the athletes must demonstrate their skills. Drs. Anderson and Wagener are trained in the AIQ and can help athletes and teams to better understand their athletic abilities through individual and/or group sessions.
