This study investigates the impact of Metacognitive, Cognitive, and Motivational Cultural Intelligence (CQ) on Behavioral Cultural Intelligence (CQ). In particular, we examine whether cognitive capabilities influence actions and behavior. The results show that 28.4% of the variability in behavioral CQ is explained by metacognitive CQ, cognitive CQ and motivational CQ. Further analysis was done to determine how each of these three dimensions impacts on behavioral CQ. Results show that only metacognitive and motivational CQ influence behavioral CQ.
