Finally, I got an opportunity to take the quiz and surprisingly without any knowledge of International Culture, my score was 6 out of 10 and stated that I was competent. It was very interesting seeing the correct answers on the different cultures that I got wrong, such as: How do you say How are you in German “Wie Geht es ihnen”, The French want you to speak loud to show you know what you are talking about, in Korea, after you offer your counterpart a gift and they refuse it, you should make another attempt, and in China, when given a business card you should place it some where safe only after admiring its details. Very Interesting.
