Three-factor structure of theoretical model and Scale was confirmed by results of Exploratory Factor Analysis and Confirmatory Factor Analysis. Structural equation modeling fit indexes (RMSEA=.024; GFI=.978; AGFI=.956; CFI=.991), Reliability: (Cronbach’s α=.80). The research results indicate that Globalization Experience Scale (SDG) is a useful scale for studying the impact of globalization on the human personality.
