The cross-cultural approach a) studies observable behavior without giving much consideration to what goes on in people's mind (i.e., the "black box"). b) believes that human behavior is driven by instinctual and unconscious forces. c) focuses on biological and genetic bases for human emotions and behavior. d) focuses on what goes on inside the "black box", examining the way people process, store and use information, and the way of attention, perception and memory work. e) compares psychological similarities and differences across cultures in order to understand social and cultural, as well as biological and genetic, causes of behavior. f) focuses on human beings' free will and self-worth, which are believed to set humans apart from the animals.
