Intellectual humility

Cultural intelligence requires “intellectual humility”—an openness to other viewpoints. It allows you to see disagreement as an opportunity to learn...

  • I am willing to admit it if I don't know something

  • I like to compliment others on their intellectual strengths

  • I try to reflect on my weaknesses in order to develop my intelligence 

  • I actively seek feedback on my ideas, even if it is critical 

  • I acknowledge when someone knows more than me about a certain subject
