The Kindness Research Foundation

Putting Kindness to Work

Kindness is the glue that binds every human community together. But what is kindness? Are we genetically programmed to be kind? Or do we learn its importance through our upbringing?

The Kindness Research Foundation (KRF) was set up to ask this key question – is it possible to measure kindness? An eminent team of psychologists was commissioned to find out. They discovered that every human being has a measurable Kindness Quotient – or KQ.

The discovery of KQ, like its equivalent IQ, will reshape the science of human kindness. KRF will promote and fund new research to understand how KQ influences the life choices we all make.
