Abstract   Culture mixing denotes the phenomenon that “different cultures coexist in the same time and same place”. Culture mixing is an important new research direction of psychology in the era of globalization. It represents the paradigm of polycultural psychology, the fourth generation of culture and psychology research after cross cultural psychology, cultural psychology and multicultural psychology, and extends previous multicultural research in a few ways. Culture mixing affects perceptions of culture differences, creativity and multi-cultural competence. People demonstrate either inclusive or exclusive responses to culture mixing. Different psychological mechanisms underlie these reactions, and individuals’ reactions are moderated by their psychological factors and features of culture mixing. Future research should further clarify the basic concepts, examine important dimensions, reconcile inconsistent research findings, highlight the specialty of cultural information, and adopt multiple methods from various disciplines.
