A Social Participation and Social Control Model Based on Spiritual and Cultural Intelligence: A Comparative Study between Poland and Germany
Cristiano Trindade De Angelis
There is no consensus in the academic community on the definitions of Spiritual and Cultural Intelligence (SQ & CQ) and also few understanding of their impact on Social Participation – SP and Social Control – SC, leading to missed opportunities to develop new strategies to an effective education, the collaboration between University and Industry, and therefore the reduction of corruption in the macro level. This study explores the development and implementation of a Social Participation and Social Control Model – SPSC based on SQ and CQ and empirically tests two hypotheses:
H1. CQ is positively influenced by SQ
H2. The integration of SQ and CQ influences positively the social control and social participation and therefore reduce corruption
The main conclusion is that experience can be more important than knowledge to reduce the brain drain and corruption. This study demonstrate that the super protection of parents from Poland in regards to the teenagers is not the most reasonable one and it provokes, when they are young, the brain drain, in particular to Germany. The immaturity of young people in Poland contribute to the low capacity to open space to social participation and social control.
The nomological validity shows the evidence that the structural relationships among constructs is consistent with other studies and this work concludes that the SPSC model is useful to identify how humility, sensitivity, kindness, learn by comparison, resilience and capacity to deal with complexity improve the process of application of knowledge to flourish social participation and social control.
