Having the sense that one’s life has meaning and purpose is believed to be an outcome of having "made sense of life", also known as "meaning-making", and it has been shown to be correlated with everything in a colored circle and anti-correlated with everything in a dark circle.

Based on the latest in cognitive science.

Inqwire synthesizes well-established research from the fields of research, cognitive linguistics, neuroscience, psychology, sociology, and information science into a single platform designed to help you make sense.

What's the curriculum of the Inqwire Core Program?

The Core Training

The first part of the Inqwire Core Program is a core training around the fundamental skills for sensemaking. This training serves as a foundation for everything you will do with Inqwire.

Foundations for Clear Thinking

You’ll take the essential steps to practice and prepare for integrating a new way of thinking into your life.

You’ll learn how to switch into a productive mindset, set up a quality space for sensemaking, establish a practice plan, and reveal the important things you want to gain clarity around.

Exploring for Insights and Understanding

You’ll be introduced to the Inqwire software and learn the core steps and skills for making sense of something in your life.

You'll learn the art of clearly articulating what's on your mind, how to use questions to reveal insights, and how to tune into and follow your curiosity to reveal clear solutions that make sense for you and your life.


After completing the core training, you can move on to choose any or all of these electives to incorporate into your Core Program.

Going from Insights to Life Changes

As you gain insights and understanding through using Inqwire, you may uncover things in life that you want to change.

In this elective, you’ll learn how to use your automatically generated Life Model to identify opportunities and strategies for making these changes in your life.

You’ll learn how to increase and decrease what you want more or less of in life, reveal unexpected opportunities for making life changes, discover the largest leverage points in your life, and break negative cycles or create positive cycles in life.

Accelerating Your Path to Clarity

In this elective, you'll learn how to model your life in different ways and curate the most significant, important, and meaningful aspects of your life into your own "Life Atlas". This Life Atlas is designed to capture a more accurate understanding of your life to accelerate your ability to reach insights and clarity. This Life Atlas will also work to help increase the possibility of reaching more powerful insights by revealing larger patterns across your life.

Making Sense Together

Most of us have been steeped in a form of communication that restricts us to lower levels of cognition and leads to division and conflict. This affects the quality of our relationships with our friends, family, co-workers and community members. It turns our every day conversations into experiences that divide us and block us from increasing a shared understanding about the world around us.

More recently, this division-based communication has reached a dangerous fever-pitch with the ‘echo chamber’ effect of social media and the increase of inflammatory media messages.

In this elective, you will come away with the skills to shift yourself and others into higher levels of cognition to communicate in a way that is integration-based. This form of integration-based communication leverages different perspectives and life experiences to counter the negative effects of division-based communication, generate insights, create meaning, expand worldviews, and increase the collective wisdom needed to create a world that makes sense.

You will learn how to facilitate integration-based communication with anyone, such as friends, family, co-workers, and strangers, and explore everything from shared challenges and decisions, to interpersonal conflicts, current events and issues, all the way to the big questions of life.

Moving Forward: Make Sense Anytime, On Your Own

When you’re done with the Inqwire Core Program, you’ll have gained familiarity with the tools and skills you need to make sense and reach clarity in life. From now on, you’ll be able to continue to use Inqwire at your own pace to make sense of things in life as they come up.


What's it like to make sense of things with Inqwire?

Maybe you've been trying hard for years to make sense of something big in your life and nothing has worked. You might be feeling drained, hopeless, demoralized, and feel like maybe it's not possible to reach clarity.

More often than not, when you can't make sense of something, it's because there are pieces of the puzzle that you’re missing. These missing pieces will never be found by thinking about things in the same way you've been thinking about them, or looking harder for answers in the same places you've been looking. Instead, you need a way to look in new places and think about things in different ways.

The problem is that most products, approaches, systems, or methods out there don’t help you do this. Instead, they try to convince you that they have the missing pieces you need, and then sell them to you, even when they’re the wrong fit. We are bombarded with a menu of pre-defined solutions we can choose from, and many people get lost or stuck in painstaking analysis to try to find the right choice.

Inqwire is the only tool that’s designed to accelerate your own ability to find the pieces you’ve been missing so you can make sense of things and reach clarity about life, without prescribing anything, giving you advice, or telling you what to do.

It does this by giving you skills and tools for breaking out of the thinking patterns you've been stuck in, finding new ways to approach the problem, and systematically searching for answers where you haven't looked before.

As you find the missing pieces, you will come to reach a deeper level of understanding about things in your life. As a result of this understanding, what to do will become clear. You might reveal that you need to take a certain action, make a specific change, wait for a change to happen, or even take no action at all.

Instead of getting overwhelmed with analysis, list-making, or hard thinking to pick a pre-defined solution that may not work for you, Inqwire enables you to find your own path and reveal clear solutions that make sense for you and your life.


Is Inqwire for me?

Inqwire Is for Anyone Who Wants to Reach Clarity in Life but Is Struggling to Make Sense of Things

When you're struggling to make sense of things, you may feel stuck, you may feel disoriented, you may feel frustrated. You may notice that it’s affecting important parts of your life. You may notice it affecting your personal life, making your relationships more strained, combative, or tiring. You may notice it affecting your attention, making it harder to stay focused. You may notice it draining your energy, making it harder to get excited about things, or spend time on what matters.

You want to feel clear, feel normal again, and truly move forward in your life, but nothing seems to be getting you anywhere. You may try to talk to others, and while it can be helpful, their advice rarely fits your situation. You may have invested a lot of time and energy into thinking about things on your own, only to find yourself going in circles or coming up empty. Or, you may have had experiences that gave you powerful insights, only to find you can’t integrate them into your life, leaving things unchanged. After all this, you might be feeling demoralized or even hopeless.

You may have been told that there is nothing you can do to make sense of things, that this is just how you are, or how the world is, or how life is, so you should just move on. You may have even been told that science has shown that humans simply aren’t smart enough to comprehend the complexities of life, that our thinking is irrational and distorted, and that we cannot trust ourselves to think about our lives and the world clearly.

We now know that these messages are wrong.

In the 21st century, our fundamental understanding of how the mind works has been flipped on its head, leading to a new understanding and new principles that reverse the messages of hopelessness.

These new principles tell us that there is something you can do to make sense of things, that what you’re feeling is important to pay attention to, and that your brain is not fundamentally flawed or broken. They tell us that not only are you smart enough to make sense of things in your life, but that you are the only one who can.

Inqwire is the only solution based on these new principles designed to help you overcome the barriers of making sense of things on your own.


How much time should I plan to spend?

In order to accelerate your ability to make sense and gain clarity in life, you need to learn essential cognitive skills and get confident with the Inqwire software. The objective of the Inqwire Core Program is to train you in these skills as fast as possible.

If you plan to spend 1 hour every 1-2 days, you should be able to complete all the exercises, become confident with the process of making sense, and make progress on what you want to gain clarity around within 1 month. If you need more time or you want to go at a slower place, you can always extend your access to the program and the software.

However, if you can spend more time than this, you should.

The more time you spend with Inqwire, the more you will be exposing your mind to how it feels and how it works to think about your life in a new way. Over time, your mind will recognize how this way of thinking is more effective and it will naturally choose it more and more over dead-end, lower-level ways of thinking - even when you are away from Inqwire. This adds another level of acceleration to your ability to make sense.

In parallel, the more time you spend learning and practicing this new way of thinking, the less you will be affected by the lower-level ways of thinking that we are constantly exposed to in the world through social media, the news, and the people around us, allowing you to stop losing valuable time and energy and further add a level of acceleration to your ability to make sense.

Because of this, to get the most out of the Inqwire Core Program and the most acceleration to your ability to make sense and gain clarity in life, you should plan on spending as much time as you can on the program.


Is there an instructor or a guide?

The Inqwire Core Program is intended to give you the ability to navigate the process of making sense of things on your own, in a self-guided way.

To do this, Inqwire comes with integrated training and guidance delivered by an automated Inqwire Guide that walks you through the training exercises and the steps of making sense of things. You have control over each step of the process, but the Guide is always there to support you along the way. This ensures that your actual experiences with making sense of things are solitary, self-guided, and private.

In addition, Inqwire support is only an email away if you get stuck, don't understand something.


What kinds of results should I expect?

Stronger Wise Reasoning Skills

First and foremost, the entire time you are using Inqwire, you are automatically practicing and strengthening skills related to wise reasoning, such as: seeing things from different perspectives, seeing the forest for the trees, getting the full 360 around life scenarios, making sense out of nuanced and complex situations, having a more nuanced understanding of life and the world, and asking yourself and others better questions.

More Clarity about Your Life

If you are working on topics that are ripe for insights, you should expect to reach insights that increase your clarity around things you're trying to make sense of in life. The amount of progress you make will depend on what you're trying to make sense of and the quality of time you spend with Inqwire.

Other Potential Positive Effects on Your Life

Researchers who study meaning-making find that the ability to make sense of life and the resulting feeling that one's life has meaning correlates with just about every measure of well-being and anti-correlates with a variety of illnesses, diseases, and disorders.

The more you develop this sense that your life has meaning through gaining clarity about your life, and the more you practice wise reasoning, the more likely you are to experience positive effects.

    These effects could include:
  • Less time spent in your head, more time living life
  • Improved decision-making
  • Enhanced sense of intuition around future outcomes
  • Improved resilience in the face of challenging life circumstances
  • Increased self-awareness and deeper understanding of life
  • Greater self-reliance and self-empowerment
  • Improved outlook on life, including feeling more hopeful, connected, valuable, empowered, safe, and purposeful

You can learn more about the positive effects of sensemaking in The Key Research Behind Inqwire.


Does this work with other tools or practices?

Inqwire is complementary to and can enhance many other practices.

This is because Inqwire gives you a way to take the content of what you're exploring with your other practices, explore it deeper, and integrate it into the context of your life.

And, because Inqwire is designed to accelerate your ability to reach insights and gain clarity around what you're exploring, you are likely to make faster progress in your existing practices.

For example, after journaling, you can use Inqwire to explore the important topics that came up in your writing to reveal connections and insights.

Or, as you're meditating, you can write down things that come to mind, then later use Inqwire to address them with your full attention in a meaningful, productive way.

If you are working with a therapist, mentor, or coach, you can use Inqwire as a homework tool to take the topics you talked about in person and dive in deeper on your own time and in complete privacy.


Is everything done on the computer?

Inqwire can be used on your computer or from your phone. This means that you can use it anywhere you have phone reception, enabling you to make sense of things while in environments that are more conducive to reflecting on life, such as while out in nature, while walking around, or while sitting or reclining somewhere comfortable away from your desk.

Additionally, most of your experiences with Inqwire won’t require you to look at the screen very much at all. Once you get familiar with Inqwire, you might only spend a few minutes setting up a session for yourself to get hours of custom activities and content.

You can even choose to have Inqwire read to you. You can put headphones in and free your gaze and your mind from the screen as you listen to your own personal guided session.


How did you come up with the technology?

Unlike many systems, processes, or frameworks, the technology in Inqwire did not come out of someone’s imagination, personal life experience, or theory for what should help people think better and make sense.

Instead, the technology was developed over 9 years, starting with a systematic review of what techniques have worked to help people make sense, pulling from diverse domains such as memoir writing, wisdom traditions, collective intelligence, and a multitude of therapeutic methods.

This was followed with a painstaking search for the most complete scientific explanations from psychology, to sociology, cognitive science, and neuroscience for what makes these techniques work.

This cross field scientific survey resulted in the distillation of a set of fundamental scientific mechanisms and guiding principles that served as a blueprint for the creation of a universal model and technology for making sense. To get a sense of the largest contributions to this blueprint by field, see the key research.

The founders combine backgrounds in cognitive science and building enterprise-grade optimization software for solving the world’s hardest problems to turn this blueprint into a complete, one of a kind technology for sensemaking.


What is the science behind this?

Inqwire is based on the most current and well-established research across the cognitive sciences. More specifically, it draws on understanding from the fields of education, cognitive linguistics, neuroscience, psychology, sociology, philosophy, and information science.


Does this use AI or machine learning?

Inqwire is an intelligence amplification technology (IA), which is in many ways the complete opposite of modern Artificial Intelligence (AI).

AI attempts to solve problems and perform tasks that would normally be done by a human. IA is designed to augment and enhance humans in doing what we do best - make sense.

When it comes to sensemaking, your brain is not only vastly superior and more powerful than any AI system, your brain in particular is the only thing that is capable of making sense of and navigating your unique life.

This is because sensemaking requires higher levels of cognition that only the human brain can perform. No AI system is capable of thinking or operating at these higher levels. Even if an AI system of the future was capable of these higher levels of cognition, only your brain has access to all the information that’s needed about your life to make sense of it and navigate it successfully.

Because of this, it would be nonsensical and even dangerous to allow any AI system to solve your personal problems, make major life decisions for you, or tell you what direction to go in life.

Instead, what does make sense is to use tools that augment and enhance your brain’s natural abilities to make sense.

IA may be an unfamiliar concept, but you have likely been using tools IA for years without realizing it. IA is what computing systems and software has been predominantly designed for since the beginning of computing.

We created computers to overcome our own cognitive limitations, enabling us to amplify our intelligence for the purpose of solving some of the world’s hardest problems such as weather prediction, scheduling and planning, space travel, and now - sensemaking.


What happens with my personal data?

Nothing you enter or write about in Inqwire is stored on Inqwire servers. Instead, everything is saved directly to your computer or phone.

If you’d like to keep your data synced across multiple devices, you have the option of using a Dropbox plug-in to make this possible.

You might be wondering, “but don’t you need my data?”. Because Inqwire is Intelligence Amplification (IA) technology, not Artificial Intelligence (AI), it does not need to use big data or statistical machine learning. This means Inqwire doesn't want or need any of your personal data in order to improve. It's improved as scientific understanding progresses.


Who do I talk to if I have more questions?

You can send an email with additional questions to and someone from the team will respond.
