Cultural Intelligent Countries

Are people from certain countries on average more cultural intelligent than from others? If yes, what could be countries with a high and a low average level of cultural understanding?

Nationality and Cultural Intelligence

I think it was Hofstede who researched this, Scandinavians seem to be particularly good at adapting to the local culture, whereas for some reason, we Anglo Saxons (Yes Yanks you as well ! :-) ) have a reputation for thinking our own ways are best

Cultural Intelligence

Cultural Intelligence is the ability to respect people of all nationalities. No one culture should impose and or attempt to dominate and shape the thinking of others. We can all build a better world by respecting each others' cultural difference and similarities.

Cultural Intelligent Cultures

I'm not sure! I have worked in China for 10 years with expatriates and locals alike assisting them in adjusting to a new culture through cross cultural training programs. It seems to me that there isn't one country whose nationals adapt more quickly or are more culturally intelligent. It does seem to be a personality issue. Those who have travelled widely, are more detached, are more big picture and less concerned about time, seem to adapt better to China and Shanghai in particular (this is where I'm based). Also, those who are curious about others' history, language, traditions - Culture - may fit in more easily. those who are open to seeing themsleves in a different way and those who are willing to accept that there are other ways of doing tend to get better results. These are my observations from 20 years of working multi-culturally and 10 years of working in China. It is not the absolute truth.
