Abstract  Based on the review of the development of self-construal theories, the methods for measuring chronic self-construal and activating situational self-construal are introduced. Cultural differences and gender differences in self-construal, the relationships between self-construal and relevant variables, such as cognitive styles, social comparison, interpersonal interaction, personal autonomous and self-regulatory are also reviewed. Further researches in this field depend on the perfection in basic ideas of self-construal theory, the improvement of self-construal measurement, and researchers applying a dialectical perspective on the relationships among variables. In addition, further effort is needed to study the mechanisms of how chronic self-construal affect one’s stable personality characters and social adjustment, and the influencing factors of chronic self-construal’s individual differences.
Keywords self-construal      cognitive style      social comparison      interpersonal interaction      personal autonomous      self-regulatory
