  • Living Authentically

    This IQ Matrix explores how to live a life aligned with your true authentic nature. These days we play many different roles and there are just so many expectations that people and society put upon us. Being authentic and living an authentic life is very difficult because we feel pressure from others to live and act a certain way. As a result we tend to do and say things to gain people's approval in social situations. We effectively wear masks that disguise our true selves from the world. This makes us come across as disingenuous in social situations, which undermines our efforts to build rapport with others. This map walks you through what it takes to live authentically. It provides you with a list of questions to help you tap into your true authentic nature, and explores three key areas of authenticity that you can bring forth into your social interactions with others.

    Showing Compassion

    This IQ Matrix explores the value of living with more compassion. Moreover, it describes how to use it in your daily interactions with others. Compassion, however, doesn’t always come naturally. It's especially difficult when other people leave us feeling hurt, angry or upset. But even during times like these, compassion can be of tremendous value — not only for us but also for the other person. In fact, living with more compassion typically leads to higher levels of happiness and fulfillment. This mind map explores what true compassion is about. It takes you through a six-step process for developing more compassion. And concludes by describing how to find more self-compassion. This is of particular value when you're going through periods of personal struggle, adversity, and pain.

  • The Art of the Compliment

    This IQ Matrix breaks down how to give a genuine compliment that will leave people feeling confident and inspired. Giving a compliment is somewhat of an art-form. It can, for instance, very quickly help you create incredible levels of rapport with other people. When delivered correctly it immediately wins people over. However, when incorrectly delivered it can very quickly leave people feeling deflated, confused, and suspicious. This mind map highlights what it means to give a great compliment. It breaks down a four-step process you can use to deliver a killer compliment. It presents you with further guidelines for making the most of your compliments. And concludes with some general rules and etiquette on how to receive compliments in social situations.

Your mind maps are logical, they read like a book, they are very visually orientated, compact and they stimulate thinking about a subject. I often take one with me on a coffee break to fill my mind with positive new ideas. The logic is great, the impact is more than I thought. I take time to read them through several times to get the full meaning.

Mark Deseke

I love the way I don't have to wade through pages of explanation but can get a sense at a glance. As a life coach and clinical professional, I have found the maps are a wonderful quick reference tool to help my clients see the components of the issue being faced.

More Content to be Added Over Time...

Summaries and eBooks for each IQ Matrix are made available over time. They will be added to your downloads page automatically once they have been published. At this time, no further IQ Doodles are planned for production. However, some of the 100s of mind maps that have been created do also include Visual Thinking Templates and instructions on how to use them.

"The most basic of all human needs is the need to understand and be understood."


Each IQ Matrix represents a cluster of thoughts about a single topic. It’s like a neuron network of interconnected thoughts where you meticulously explore the brain of someone who has successfully mastered the topic. You then take those thought clusters and implant them into your own brain as you use the map. Kind of like a software upgrade for your brain.


Each map effectively categorizes the most important and actionable ideas about a topic into conveniently digestible chunks. It uses keywords and questions in a sentence-like structure that’s easy to follow and understand.


Each map uses a combination of keywords, colors and images designed in an organic radial-like structure that naturally helps improve memory while encouraging photographic recall of the information you are exploring.​


Each map provides you with a comprehensive bird’s eye view of the topic. Subsequently, you gain deeper insights as you're better able to recognize how various ideas are interlinked together to form the whole topic.​
