Cognitive Styles: A Bibliography and Selected Annotations. Interim Report for Period January 1977-January 1978.
Back, Kathryn T.; And Others
A bibliography and selected annotations of research on cognitive style are presented. The citations were retrieved from computer and manual searches of the literature. Selected items, based on their significance to research efforts, are organized around subject, method, and results of each study. Ten constructs are included: (1) field dependence-independence; (2) impulsivity-reflectivity; (3) visual-haptic; (4) leveling-sharpening; (5) distractibility (constricted-flexible control); (6) breadth of categorization; (7) scanning-focusing; (8) tolerance for unrealistic experiences; (9) cognitive complexity; and (10) conceptualizing style. Approximately one-third of the document contains annotated citations. (MH)
