Limitations to Intercultural Communication

Caroline Garner
Limitations to Intercultural Communication

Everyone has a unique perspective that they bring to the table, their own backgrounds, and even
their own biases.  I am not immune to this fact.  I personally have certain ideas and expectations
that I am familiar with and I naturally gravitate towards people with the same ideas and
values.  One of these is the fact that I am a Christian.  I feel more at home with people that I
know are believers and have similar morals and belief systems, and I feel like I can be more
myself around these people.  This is a preferred cultural value for me.  It is a challenge for me to
truly invest and have a deep relationship with someone who is not a believer in Christ.  There
can also be some limitations based on where I am from, even just in the United States.  I am
from the south, so someone from a very northern or western part of the United States is harder
for me to relate to.  I have best friends from all over the country and even the world, but there are
times we do not understand each other just because of how and where we were raised.  I am also
somewhere between Generation Z and Millennial, and especially in America, this is a very
narcissistic generation.  We have grown up able to post our entire life on Instagram, and this has
affected our cultural interactions.  On the plus side, information has bever been able to move
faster, and we have a lot more cultural knowledge than previous generations, but I do not think
we have as much CQ Action.
Based on my CQ assessment, my weakest points in intercultural communication include socio-
linguistic knowledge, and self-efficacy.  This means that I have limited knowledge and my self-
confidence is not the highest when it comes to culturally diverse situations.  I have a high level
of drive.  I am excited to learn and grow in culturally diverse scenarios, but my own self-
confidence gets in the way.  This has to do with my natural tendency to stay in my own comfort
zone and not stray from what I know.  This is not an acceptable method of gaining
CQ.  Livermore says, “we have to move beyond artificial approaches in which we pretend to be
respectful and move toward becoming leaders who genuinely respect and value people from
different cultural backgrounds.” I have to take the first step to do my own personal research to
gain knowledge and take a leap of faith out of my comfort zone.
