Relocation Readiness Assessment

This is a self-discovery assessment designed to help you gain deeper insights into crucial aspects of your current readiness for a transnational relocation, designed for young adults. 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 meeting or collaborating with individuals from varied backgrounds different from their own. It serves as the foundation for nurturing successful cross-cultural communication, establishing trust, and forging meaningful connections across geographical boundaries. 

The process of relocation 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 approach towards uncertainty can help you choose the most effective response. If you thrive in uncertainty, you might focus on developing resourcefulness and adaptability. If you prefer structure, you might create detailed plans and research extensively.

Disagreement, contestation, or conflicts are common place when we move to a new place. 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.
