1- Presentation of the LQ–quest project
LQ-quest has been developed as an ancillary tool to facilitate and optimise the selection of human resources, although all human beings have their own, unique life path that gives them an unparalleled and therefore incomparable life experience.

The main objective in designing LQ–quest, whether to exist independently from or integrated into the 'CV’, is to provide more information about the candidate and create better conditions for the preparation and conduction of the interview in the case of pre-selection.

These objectives were always present in the drawing up and selection of the type of questions, necessarily limited, that make up the LQ–quest questionnaire.

It should be noted that the profile of the candidates at which LQ-quest is mainly directed, by its configuration and proposed objectives, is preferably the tertiary (trade and services) and quaternary (intellectual activities) sectors. Regarding the sectors by property and by sociological perspective, the allocation of the candidates to these sectors was also considered.

A questionnaire consists of a set of questions, made to generate the necessary data to verify the objectives that the project proposes. It is, however, agreed that there will be no exact procedures to ensure that a flawless quality measurement is carried out. This becomes even more relevant when a new theory is put forward, that of the measurement of life experience as a primary factor in ensuring greater propensity to the development of human intelligence.

Accordingly, the LQ–quest questionnaire comprises a sampling of indicators of the dynamics of life. Although any standard methodology may be shown to be insufficient in certain limiting conditions, naturally, the recommendations of several researchers for the scientific research process were not disregarded. As a result, the author of LQ–quest, Sérgio Lorré, chose to develop a questionnaire system with its own particularities because they necessarily have to be adapted to the singularity of the Project, although it has respected the guidance and practice of several authors as a baseline. The most relevant steps considered here are, perhaps, those of Aaker et al. (2001) for drawing up a questionnaire.
