Key Ideas

Multicultural people

Multicultural individuals commonly think, perceive, behave, and respond to global workplace issues in more complex ways than monocultural individuals.

Some multicultural individuals translate these differences into career success.

Multicultural minds

People can be categorized as multicultural by:

  • Having the ability to function in many cultures with ease.
  • Knowing multiple languages.
  • Having a multicultural mind, and can think in different ways.

Multiculturalism within Individuals

Multiculturalism within individuals can be defined as the degree to which they know, identify with, and internalize multiple cultures.

Identifying with a culture

  • Monocultural: Identity with one cultural group
  • Slightly multicultural: Identity primarily with one culture, and to a lesser extent with another culture
  • Moderately multicultural: Identity strongly with more than one culture
  • Highly multicultural: Identity with more than two cultures.

Mixed exposure

Multicultural people are not just confined to having parents from two different cultures. There can be other reasons like:

  • They have lived internationally.
  • They have immigrant parents or grandparents.
  • They lived in a multicultural city.

Motivation to learn

We have an impressive ability to learn, but our motivation to do so tends to decrease with age:

  • As children, we are naturally curious and free to explore the world around us. ...

Knowledge and expertise

In this digital age, knowledge and expertise have been devalued.

What you know is now less relevant than what you can learn, and employers are less interested in hiring people with particular expertise than with the general ability to develop the right expertise in the future.

Access to information

When we can all retrieve the same information, the key differentiator is not access to data, but the ability to make use of it, the capacity to translate the available information into useful knowledge.

The Right Representation

Normally, studies conducted to understand human behavior have participants representing the wider human population, which may be true in a certain geography but isn't accurate when we take into account other cultures and demographics.

More than 90% of the participants in psychological studies originate from countries that are Western, Educated, Industrialized, Rich and Democratic (W.E.I.R.D) which is neither a random sample nor a real representation of the human population.

Different Ways Of Being

People across the world have different ways of describing themselves, different mental associations and thinking styles, possessing radically diverse motivations, upbringing, and social relationships.

What may be categorized as a mental illness in a certain part of the world may be normal behavior in another. Cultural differences pervade in a wider array of human behavior and there is a need to increase the circumference and scope of these studies.

Understanding the world

Spirituality is a framework for understanding the world. It enables people to make sense of that which, for them, science and religion fail to address: religion because it's outdated and out of touch with scientific progress, science because it's incapable to answer some of life's most crucial questions (of purpose, meaning and value).

Outer Space vs. Inner Space

The Dalai Lama once joked: "While the West was busy exploring outer space, the East was busy exploring inner space". 

Regardless of the veracity of this, it does seem that for contemporary western societies, silence and stillness are an exception, not the rule.
