Professor Berry's research on cross-cultural psychology is responsible for criticizing the cultural blindness and cultural limitations of wasp (Western academic science pretestant), and believes that cross-cultural psychology can solve such problems. As for the goal of cross-cultural psychology research, he said: we can transmit and test the application of relevant psychological theories in different cultural fields, and we can also explore the expression modes and values of other cultures and behaviors from the perspective of thematic strategy (cultural particularity strategy), and through the integration of the above two steps, we can establish a new human commonness Global and universal psychology. He proposed three positions in cultural studies: absolutist, relativist and universalist. He believes that wasp and minority psychology belong to the study of absolutism, local psychology and cultural psychology belong to the study of relativism, while cross-cultural psychology is a study within the scope of universalism.

Professor John berry put forward the ecological culture framework, which holds that culture is shared in deep level and changeable in explicit level, which provides the possibility for cross-cultural psychology research. This possibility is based on the similarities of culture, and its evaluation method is rooted in the performance of specific culture. Among them. On the premise of this possibility, he analyzed the basic process / capacity, competence and performance / behavior. He believed that the basic process and function of psychology are common in human culture, and competence is the result of growing up in different cultures. Performance and behavior are expressed in appropriate cultural background and rooted Behavior in the basic process and function of psychology.
