    Link to the Saboteur Assessment: 


    Saboteurs are the voices in your head that generate negative emotions in the way you handle life’s everyday challenges. They represent automated patterns in your mind for how to think, feel, and respond. They cause all of your stress, anxiety, self-doubt, frustration, restlessness, and unhappiness. They sabotage your performance, wellbeing, and relationships.



    Link to the PQ Score Assessment:


    Your PQ (Positive Intelligence Quotient, or Positivity Quotient for short) measures the relative strength of your positive versus negative mental muscles. PQ is the measure of your mental fitness. Take our PQ Score assessment to discover how often your mind is serving you versus sabotaging you.
