Executive Skills Questionnaire (ESQ)

36 questions

Executive function skills are the mental processes that enable us to plan, focus attention, remember instructions, juggle multiple tasks successfully, and self-regulate. Executive skills are highly correlated with success in life. Knowing our skills, identifying our challenges, and finding coping strategies are key. The ESQ was developed to help you understand your executive skills, and identify or verify potential problem areas, rather than as an objective measure of problem areas. The most important thing the ESQ attempts to clarify is whether your pattern of strengths and weaknesses enable you to be (reasonably) successful in managing your responsibilities and challenges.

What you get:
  • Strengths and weaknesses across the following 12 factors of executive function: response inhibition, working memory, emotional control, sustained attention, task initiation, planning/prioritization, organization, time management, cognitive flexibility, metacognition, goal-directed persistence, stress tolerance.
