The authors’ indigenous, cross-cultural, and cultural psychology studies in the area of culture and personality are reviewed. Indigenous studies include the authors’ efforts to identify and measure Filipino personality dimensions, drawing on both cultural informant and lexical approaches, and to relate these dimensions to hypothesized universal dimensions such as the Five-Factor Model. The authors’ cross-cultural studies address the generalizability of personality structure as measured by the NEO personality inventories and the measurement invariance of these inventories, with implications for the validity of mean profile comparisons across cultures. The authors then describe their studies testing an integrated trait and cultural psychology perspective. Finally, theoretical and applied implications and directions for future research are noted. The authors conclude that indigenous, cross-cultural, and cultural psychology perspectives provide complementary approaches and that integrating them will lead to a more comprehensive understanding of the relationship between culture and personality.

Keywords:   culture, traits, personality structure, measurement invariance, indigenous psychology, cross-cultural psychology, cultural psychology
