The developmental stage of intercultural sensitivity that best fits me at this point in my life is the one listed as number five Adaptation I feel this way because I can evaluate others behavior from their frame of reference in most instances and can adapt my behavior to fit the norms of their culture if needed I am a very flexible person when it comes to cultural values I know what I value but I also know that the things I value are not always the same as other cultures I can easily and quickly adapt to others needs in most situations I think that being able to do this will help me tremendously in dealing with parents from different cultures I think it will show them that I have a respect for them and their way of life and will encourage them to be more respectful when dealing with me I think that respect is a big issue with almost all cultures and I want to make sure that I am always treating others with respect I also would not want parents to feel uncomfortable talking to me about any issue that they may be having The main reason I see myself in the adaptation stage is that I have grown up working with and playing with and dealing on a daily basis with people from different cultures I wouldnt say that I could integrate with any other culture completely but I am able to adapt to their ways of doing things at least for small periods of time when needed I was never really in the denial stage because I have always know that there are cultural differences in people and I am able to recognize them fairly quickly Also I have never really looked at the difference in a negative view Ive just thought that they were different and that is what makes them special Each culture is unique in their own
