Abstract

The objectives of this study were to study the influence of five-factor model of personality and cultural intelligence on intercultural adjustment of employees in private hospital in Bangkok. The samples of this study were 154 employees at a private hospital in Bangkok. The data were collected by questionnaire. The statistics used for data analysis were percentage, mean, standard deviation, and stepwise multiple regression analysis.


The results of this study showed that five-factor model of personality and cultural intelligence could jointly predict intercultural adjustment with both psychological adjustment and socio - cultural adjustment. (1) Neuroticism of personality and openness to experience of personality and motivational cultural intelligence could jointly predict psychological adjustment of employees in a private hospital around 30.3% at .001 level of significance. (2) Neuroticism of personality and motivational cultural intelligence and cognitive cultural intelligence could jointly predict socio - cultural adjustment of employees in a private hospital around 48.0% at .001 level of significance.
