CQ Stands for Culture Quotient, Communication Quotient, Cooperation Quotient, Concentration Quotient,
and Creativity Quotient.
Culture is the essence of a country or a person. Naturally it includes the arts – music, art, drama, popular culture
and the like, but it also covers all the inner workings of a society.
Communication is indispensable in today’s world. Knowledge alone is no longer effective. Being able to
communicate effectively is the key.
Cooperation is important because we cannot do it alone any longer. We must work together whether it is within
a country or among countries and the key to cooperation is understanding each other’s culture.
Concentration is a basic factor of society. Because it shows how we know ourselves, what we can do and
what we like to do.
Creativity is our competitiveness. Creativity means a habit which can make us develop ourselves and an
attitude which can enhance us.
