This free resource is meant to be used as a worksheet for individual reflection that applies the metaphor of a pendulum to the Intercultural Development Continuum for a more robust and realistic sense of one's intercultural competence, the outside forces/events/environmental factors that pull one towards a focus on similarity and difference (magnets), and the strategies and behaviors one can employ to stay balanced (anchors). See the publication for further details and a narrative illustration of the model:
