As one important kind of positive emotions, awe has been overlooked by psychologists in the past. In recent years, researchers proposed a prototypical model of awe and have started to investigate the psychological benefits of awe empirically. Awe has been found closely related to time perception, prosocial behaviors, spiritous delight, self-consciousness and information processing. Future research shall focus on clarifying the definition of awe, overcoming negative influence of awe, and cultivating people’s feelings of awe in life, etc.

Keywords positive emotion      awe      prototypical model of awe      accommodation
