“The Intercultural Development Inventory® (IDI) is a theory-based assessment of intercultural competence -the capability to shift cultural perspective and appropriately adapt behavior to cultural differences and commonalities- which allows individuals and groups to see their progression along the Intercultural Development Continuum® (IDC). 

The IDC® describes a set of knowledge/ attitude/skillsets, or orientations, toward cultural difference and commonality that are along a continuum from the more monocultural mindsets of Denial and Polarization, through the transitional orientation of Minimization, to the intercultural or global mindsets of Acceptance and Adaptation.  

The capability of deeply shifting cultural perspective and bridging behavior across cultural differences is most fully achieved when one maintains an Adaptation perspective. 

The IDI® is a 50-item questionnaire available online that can be completed in 15-20 minutes. A wide range of organizations and educational institutions use the IDI®.” – information from IDI LLC 

A Valid Assessment Tool:

The IDI® has been psychometrically tested and found to possess strong content, construct, and predictive validity, and reliability across diverse cultural groups. The IDI® has been rigorously tested and has cross­cultural generalizability, both internationally and with domestic diversity.” – information from IDI LLC 

Actionable Results:

With the IDI®, licensed IDI Qualified Administrators (QAs) can provide both group results (shared in a Group Profile Report during a Group Debrief) and individual results (shared in an Individual Profile Report during a one-on-one debrief). Individuals also receive a customized Intercultural Development Plan® (IDP) which provides a detailed blueprint for the individual to further develop their intercultural competence.” – information from IDI LLC
