ISQ – explore your patterns of communication


Your mind, emotion, instinct and intuition interact with the environment like a mind/body social antenna.  You may be surprised to find out what Vitality Type patterns you communicate. Awareness of your ISQ scores provides you with new self-knowledge about how you engage with the world around you. This information facilitates self-discovery, self-leadership and collaboration.

ISQ scores

Your highest score indicates the Vitality Type you are most inclined to lean on in your interactions with others. Catalyst and Torchbearer Vitality Types represent interactive patterns that are principally action oriented, while the Pathfinder and Pragmatist Vitality Types characteristically have interactive patterns that are more low key and process oriented.


By reading about the positive attributes and shadow aspects of all four Vitality Types you gain awareness  of other patterns you might subconsciously communicate in your interactions.

Most people have one or two Vitality Type patterns that highly influence their interactions with others.  One interactive pattern may be obvious and clearly dominant and others are more subtle.  Hence, your second and third highest scores reflect less dominant tendencies.

It is not unusual to either have one or two low scores or to score zero in one of the categories.  While everyone has all four Vitality Types as part of their inner energy resources, there is usually one that is less dominant as part of this self-assessment.
