multicultural settings. Most people find it beneficial to read the feedback report now and then re-read it in a few

days. This will allow you to think deeply about the feedback and how you can use this information.

CQ DRIVE Your level of interest, persistence, and confidence during multicultural interactions.

CQ KNOWLEDGE Your understanding about how cultures are similar and different.

CQ ACTION Your ability to adapt when relating and working in multicultural contexts.

CQ STRATEGY Your awareness and ability to plan for multicultural interactions.

What is CQ? Cultural Intelligence (CQ) is a person's capability to function effectively in a variety of cultural contexts - both

internationally and domestically.

In our own cultures, we usually have an idea of what's going on around us because we have a wealth of

information, most of which is subconscious, that helps us make sense of what we experience and observe.

When we interact with individuals who have a different cultural background, the same cues may mean

something entirely different.

CQ CAPABILITIES There are four primary CQ capabilities.

CQ Profile This page summarizes your scores for the four primary CQ capabilities. The graphs indicate the worldwide

norms and show typical differences in the scores across the four capabilities. Note your self-ratings (in the

squares).

Development Plan Your CQ is not fixed. With some simple but intentional goals and strategies, you can enhance your CQ. The

next few pages give you a chance to reflect on your CQ capabilities, your multicultural challenges and

opportunities, and your CQ feedback. Then you will have a chance to develop an action plan.

Research Basis of CQ THE RESEARCH BASIS FOR ASSESSING CULTURAL INTELLIGENCE

Cultural Intelligence is conceptualized as a multi-dimensional construct based on application of Robert

Sternberg's integrative theoretical framework of different "loci" of intelligence. The dimensions of Cultural

Intelligence represent qualitatively different aspects of the overall capability to function and manage

effectively in culturally diverse settings.

CULTURAL INTELLIGENCE IS ...

Cultural Intelligence is a malleable capability that can be enhanced by multicultural experiences, training and

self-awareness programs, travel and education.

Cultural Intelligence is distinct from stable individual differences such as personality, which describe

what a person typically does across time and across situations.

Cultural Intelligence is also different from emotional intelligence because it focuses specifically on

capabilities in multicultural contexts.

Cultural Intelligence has predictive validity over and above demographic characteristics, personality, general

mental ability, emotional intelligence, cross-cultural adaptability inventory, rhetorical sensitivity, cross-cultural

experience, and social desirability.

The Cultural Intelligence Scale has excellent psychometric properties.

Published scholarly research demonstrates the factor structure of the scale is stable across samples,

across time, and across cultures.

In addition, self-rated scores are positively correlated with observer-rated scores, and multi-trait multi-

method analysis supports the convergent and discriminant validity of the scale.

Reliabilities of the four factors and sub-dimensions exceed the standard cut-off of .70.

Most important, research demonstrates that cultural intelligence predicts adjustment, well-being, cultural

judgment and decision-making, and task performance in culturally diverse settings.

Cultural Values

CULTURAL VALUE ORIENTATIONS

Individuals have personal preferences or individual cultural value orientations. Sometimes individual

orientations reflect one's nationality or ethnicity but not always. In this section of the report, you’ll see your

personal orientation on ten cultural value dimensions (defined above) compared to the tendencies of ten

cultural clusters (defined below).

CULTURAL CLUSTERS

The cultural value orientations defined above can be grouped into cultural clusters where you're likely to find

a significant presence of a specific cluster of cultural values. These clusters represent the 10 largest cultural

groupings in the world.

Anglo Australia, Canada, New Zealand, U.K., U.S., etc.

Arab Bahrain, Egypt, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Morocco, Saudi Arabia, U.A.E., etc.

Confucian Asia China, Hong Kong, Japan, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, etc.

Eastern Europe Albania, Czech Republic, Greece, Hungary, Mongolia, Poland, Russia, etc.

Germanic Europe Austria, Belgium, Germany, Netherlands, etc.

Latin America Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Mexico, etc.

Latin Europe France, French-speaking Canada, Italy, Portugal, Spain, etc.

Nordic Europe Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, Sweden, etc.

Sub-Saharan Africa Ghana, Kenya, Namibia, Nigeria, Zambia, Zimbabwe, etc.

Southern Asia India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand, etc.

NOTE: The countries are NOT the clusters themselves. They are simply places where you're likely to find a

significant presence of the cultural clusters.
