Cultural Intelligence, cultural quotient or CQ, is a term used in both business and government. Although there is no official definition, cultural intelligence can be understood as the recognizing and understanding of the beliefs, values, attitudes, and behaviors of a group of people and the ability to apply that knowledge toward the achieving of specific goals. Traditionally, the term "CQ" has been used in reference to business and social models or programs while more militaristic terms such as the abbreviation "CULTINT" are used in government and military operations.
