Ragan, Tillman J.; And Others
Ten prominent cognitive styles are discussed in a literature review. The review of each style includes an overview of the research literature; a review and evaluation of assessment instruments; and identification of styles which seem most relevant for application to Air Force Technical training. The cognitive styles covered are: (1) field-dependence-field independence; (2) impulsivity-reflectivity; (3) visual-haptic; (4) leveling-sharpening; (5) constricted-flexible control; (6) breadth of categorization; (7) scanning; (8) tolerance for unrealistic experiences; (9) cognitive complexity-simplicity; and (10) conceptualizing styles. Over 100 bibliographic references are appended. (MH)
