ABSTRACTIndigenous approaches to psychological investigation provide an important corrective to untested assumptions about the universal applicability of currently popular perspectives. Indeed, one could argue that all investigations should be indigenous, in the sense that they should arise from the local circumstances in which they are located and for the specific samples that were studied. This paper indulges on the effects of culture on behavior, with an in-depth analysis of the Sociocultural Premises of the Mexican (Díaz-Guerrero, 1967, 1977, 2003), their dissection into norms and believes, their relevance for different cultural regions and historical periods and their impact on predicting behavior.
