This study examines, via a replication study, Chen and Starosta’s Model of Intercultural Sensitivity which is developed in the USA context. Although an earlier attempt to reproduce the model in Germany has been successful, the present replication study does not reach the same result based on German and US-American sample. Consequently, the intercultural validity of Chen and Starosta’s Model becomes doubtful for the time being, and which demands more close examinations in future research.
