Personality Correlates of Cultural Intelligence
The present study was designed mainly to investigate cultural intelligence in relation to personality. To realize the main objective, 250 students of XIIth grade were drawn from various Senior Secondary Schools of Sonipat District of Haryana with age ranging from 16 to 18 years with the mean age of 17 years. Selected subjects were tested with 16PF and Four Factor Cultural Intelligence Scale. Obtained data were analyzed by Pearson’s method of product moment correlations. Obtained results revealed that Cultural Intelligence-Strategy (CQ-S) correlated positively with Factors A, B, H & I of 16PF. Cultural Intelligence-knowledge (CQ-K) has marked significant negative relationship with Factors A, O, and Q4; and positively with factor C. Cultural Intelligence-Motivation (CQ-M) has marked positive relationship with factor Q4 of 16PF. Cultural Intelligence-Behavior (CQ-B) has correlated positively with Factors F,H & Q1 and negatively with factor Q4 of 16PF. These findings can’t be considered generalized and hence for it more studies are needed on larger scale.
