Cross-cultural analyses of psychology studies has also had implications for the way levels of intelligence are measured among populations we might believe that intelligence can be measured objectively, and in the west, the intelligence quotient (iq) test is commonly used to quantify and compare people's intelligence. Cross-cultural psychology is the scientific study of human behavior and mental processes, including both their variability and invariance, under diverse cultural conditions through expanding research methodologies to recognize cultural variance in behavior, language, and meaning it seeks to extend and develop psychology since psychology as an academic discipline was developed largely in.
The problems encountered in cross-cultural research are detailed and the way they affect the study of emotions is discussed they include: obtaining samples of subjects in developing countries that are comparable to samples studied in the west constructing tasks and writing and translating. “this cross-cultural study of gender differences in facial expression will answer a lot of questions” the study found that women show significantly more positive expressions of emotion.
