ItemFactors affecting british expatriates' adjustment in Thailand(Assumption University, 2013) Yanida Siamwalla ; Assumption University. Martin de Tours School of Management and EconomicsBuilding on literature relating to expatriate adjustment, this study attempted to identify factors that affect individualistic expatriate responses to cross-cultural adjustment in a collectivist culture. This study examines empirically the degree to which 387 British expatriates have adjusted themselves in terms of interaction, general/cultural and work adjustment in Thailand. It also analyzes the expatriates' adjustment antecedents which are personal factors, work related factors and cultural factors. Multiple regression analysis exhibited that expatriates' work related adjustment were affected by spouse and family adjustment, social support and role discretion. The cultural factors showed no effects on all dimensions of British expatriates' adjustment. Implications for future research and practice are dis- cussed.

The overall reliability coefficient of the scale is 0.946, which is greater than 0.8, and has good reliability as shown in table1. The findings show that the scales used to measure cultural intelligence reliable. From the results of Likert scale, metacognitive cultural intelligence has a higher score of 3.5525, and the teaching effectiveness has a relative high score of 3.326. It is clearly that the cultural intelligence has a positive relationship with teaching effectiveness.
