    This IQ Matrix explores how to be more compassionate and accepting of people’s behavior, decisions, appearance, and actions. We all, of course, judge people to one extent or another. This is part of human nature. In fact, it’s something we do from the youngest age. However, many of these judgments are nothing more than assumptions we make about how we think people ought to be. These assumptions are based on our own personal beliefs, values, standards, and life experiences. When we judge we not only hurt the other person, we also deny ourselves the opportunity to get to know and understand them at a deep emotional level. Things may very well not be as they seem. However, unless we open ourselves to new understandings and perspectives, we will never truly free ourselves from making judgments.

Suddenly you’re not in the middle of them, you can actually see them, take a step back and see the full picture. Thank you Adam for helping us with that.

Your maps are brilliant. They are colorful, creative, clever, clear, well thought out, give great direction and allow me to reflect on things I hadn't previously thought of, thereby expanding my own perspective. They are solution focused and practical. Thank you very much for creating and sharing your gifts and talents with me via your work.

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.

"Judging a person doesn't define who they are. It defines who you are."


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.​
