Abstract：This article reviews and synthesizes differing aspects of the psychology of globalization, including the developmental trajectories, core issues, individual responses, reflections and future prospects, with special emphasis on the folk theories of globalization, the double-edged sword effects of multicultural experiences, identifications with global culture and all humanity, psychological responses to globalization, and the moral reflections on globalization. This article also attempts to provide cultural psychological interpretations of the globalization paradox and summarizes the contributions and limitations of previous work. It is our hope that our current work would promote more research to further explore how the macro-process of globalization and the micro-process of human thoughts, feelings, and behaviors dynamically (re)shape each other.
