Intercultural Collaborator Test

This is a self-discovery test designed to help you gain deeper insights into crucial aspects of your intercultural collaboration style and potentials. It consists of 24 questions and assesses you on the following 3 grounds: Intercultural Openness, Uncertainty Avoidance and Conflict Style.

This result signifies an individual’s propensity and ease in pursuing comprehension while collaborating with individuals from varied backgrounds. It serves as the foundation for nurturing successful cross-cultural communication, establishing trust, and forging meaningful connections across geographical boundaries.

The process of innovation and intercultural collaboration is one filled with uncertainty. How comfortable are you with not-knowing? Result indicates one’s relation to initiative, experiment, instructions and rules. Recognizing your personal tendency towards uncertainty avoidance can empower you to better work in an innovative team. 

Innovation does not exit outside of disagreement, contestation, or conflicts. Conflict style encompasses your preferred approach to managing interpersonal friction. Being aware of your own conflict style can help you effectively manage and resolve difference, and ripe the fruits of disagreement.
