The Athletic Intelligence Quotient (AIQ) is a mental analytics tool currently being used by MLB teams (including World Series winners), NFL teams (including Super Bowl winners), NBA teams, NHL teams, MLS teams, Division 1 teams (including FBS Bowl Winners and a no. 1 ranked basketball team), Olympic training facilities, and training academies.
The AIQ measures the intellectual abilities most used in attaining, enhancing, and applying athletic skills. Just as a stopwatch measures speed, the AIQ provides valuable information about an athlete’s performance-specific intellectual abilities.
