Part 1IntroductionCultural intelligence (CQ) is a degree of an individual’s ability or capability to performefficiently in a multi-cultural setting. The zones of power, that I observed in my CQ will benefitme to efficiently link cross-culturally. In the paper, I analyzed my own cultural intelligencescores by shining light on my strengths and weaknesses, how I can possibly improve my culturalintelligence scoresMy cultural intelligence assessment helped me detect the strong and weak parts. Incultural intelligence drive, the degree to which I am strengthened and determined in my methodto multiethnic circumstances, my score was high. I secured high points in CQ knowledge, thisexposed my level of knowledge of how cultures are alike and diverse.
