IQ Matrix FAQ

Answers to questions you may have about IQ Matrix.

How do you create each IQ Matrix?

This is one of the most common questions I get asked. Based on how an IQ Matrix map is structured, it's easy to assume that I create them using a mind mapping software application. However, that's actually not the case. 


There are, of course, many mind mapping software applications out there. My favorite apps are MindManager, iMindMap, MindGenius, and Xmind. You really can't go wrong using these mind mapping software tools for creating your mind maps. However, in my case, these applications don't allow enough flexibility in design.


I do, actually, draft my mind maps using MindManager. Mind mapping software applications are fantastic tools for brainstorming ideas and organizing our thoughts. However, they aren't ideal when you want to create something that's eye catching, and that allows you with enough flexibility to design the map as you see it in your imagination. 


I personally love using mind mapping software. But, when it comes to the final design, I use another software application for creating each IQ Matrix.


At this stage only IQ Matrix Infinity Members know about this software application. It's one of the benefits of becoming a member.


Perhaps in the future, I will create a course that walks through how to create an IQ Matrix from scratch. That way I will be able to show you in details how an IQ Matrix is pieced together.

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.​
