The Definition of a Cognitive Control Principle: A Case of Diminishing Returns.
Koff, Robert H.
The present paper presents a discussion of certain dimensions of cognitive style that are subsumed under the theoretical formulation of cognitive control theory. An overview of cognitive-control theory is presented first. Second, the cognitive control principle of tolerance for unrealistic experience is then defined and the relevant literature is reviewed. In conclusion, research findings are evaluated and theoretical relationships between cognitive control principles and relatively enduring dispositions to behave in certain ways are discussed.
