Cognitive Style and Adult Learning Principles.
Joughin, Gordon
International Journal of Lifelong Education, v11 n1 p3-14 Jan-Mar 1992

The cognitive style of field dependence/independence explains differences in adults' capacities for self-direction and indicates possible contradictions inherent in andragogical assumptions. (JOW)
