Formatted abstract
This review, which is organised according to key themes, suggests that tourism researchers can profit from contemporary developments in mainstream psychology. The themes addressed are motivation and destination choice, attitudes and  satisfaction, memory,  and personal growth. Patterned and dual processing approaches to behaviour are highlighted.  Additionally a framework for advancing the analysis of minds on the move should consider a range of dimensions including emic and etic approaches, transects across domains of inquiry, social as well as individual processes, longitudinal work, pan-cultural analysis and contextual classifications. It is argued that accessing psychology scholarship can build the capacity of tourism researchers. Keywords: psychology, motivation, attitudes, satisfaction, memory, personal growth.
