The Intercultural Sensitivity Development Model (DMIS) developed by Milton J. Bennett is a framework that explains how people live and manage cultural differences. DMIS is a grounded theory; it is based on observations made both in the academic environment and in the business environment, on how people become competent ecommunicative communicators. The model uses concepts of constructivist psychology and communication theory to organize these observations in positions along a continuum of increasing sensitivity to cultural differences. How can you understand and accept if people are not willing to express or explain their views? Do I live only in fear, fear or acceptance and tolerance of ignorance and intractable goals? Acceptance is at the forefront of many meditation beliefs and practices. For example, the first noble truth of Buddhism, “All life is suffering,” invites people to accept that suffering is a natural part of life. The term “Kabbalah” literally means acceptance.

It can be said that a majority tolerates minorities when they limit their participation to certain aspects of society, but they do not accept it. The integration of cultural differences is the state in which personal experience expands to integrate movement into and from different cultural conceptions of the world. Those involved in integration often deal with issues related to their own “cultural marginality.” This phase is not necessarily better than adaptation in most situations that require intercultural skills, but it is common to non-dominant minority groups, long-term emigrants and “global nomads”. Before any breakdown by type, it must be recognized that the acceptance of everything that happens, the actual event, which is the result of all previous events combined, is considered the best result. Acceptance generally contains the concept of approval; psycho-spiritual use of the term derives from non-judicial thinking.
Acceptance contrasts with resistance, a term that has strong political and psychoanalytic connotations that do not apply in most contexts. Groups and individuals can show acceptance of various events and conditions in the world; Individuals can accept elements of their own personal thoughts, feelings and stories.
