Abstract:

This study specifically aimed to find out the consciousness quotient and intrapersonal and interpersonal relationship skills of participants prior to and after exposure to transformative consciousness exercises (for the experimental group) and the self-awareness sessions (for the comparison group). Further, the study determined significant differences between scores of the pre and post intervention in both conditions. This randomized pretest and posttest control group design utilized the Consciousness Quotient Inventory (CQi-Ver 2013) by Brazdau (2013) and the validated researcher made Intrapersonal and Interpersonal Relationship Skills Scale (IIRSS). There research instruments were administered to 23 students in the experimental group and 21 students in the comparison group before and after the sessions. Results showed that the consciousness quotient of both in the experimental and comparison group prior to and after the sessions was high. However, prior to and after the interventions, the intrapersonal and interpersonal relationship skills of the experimental group were high, while that of the comparison group were average. Results further revealed that there were no significant differences between the experimental and comparison groups' conscious quotient and intrapersonal and interpersonal skills prior to the intervention. Similarly, no significant difference was noted between the two group's consciousness quotients after the intervention, but a significant difference was found between their intrapersonal and interpersonal relationship skills. On the other hand, significant differences were noted between the prior to and after interventions consciousness quotient and intrapersonal and interpersonal skills of the experimental group. Likewise, significant difference was found between the prior to and after interventions consciousness quotient of the comparison group but no significant difference existed between the prior to and after interventions intrapersonal and interpersonal skills of the same group. Thus, it could be constructed that compared to the self-awareness sessions, the transformative consciousness exercises may have been instrumental in increasing the participants' intrapersonal and interpersonal relationship skills.
