With the help of CiteSpace, the relevant literature in CNKI and Web of Science was visually analyzed, and the current status and hot spots of non-cognitive ability research at home and abroad from 1964 to 2022 were understood through the knowledge graph, and the comparative analysis was carried out accordingly. The results showed that the research on non-cognitive ability at home and abroad had commonality in the development trend and the degree of cooperation between institutions and authors, but there were differences in research hotspots, stage frontiers and discipline diversification. In the future, China's non-cognitive ability research should pay attention to international exchanges and cooperation, and strengthen the subdivision and innovation of empirical research.
