Cilliers, C. D.; Sternberg, R. J.
South African Journal of Higher Education, v15 n1 p13-24 2001
Measured thinking styles of first-year South African university students using the Sternberg Mental Self-government Thinking Styles Inventory. Found that the preferred thinking styles were executive, legislative, hierarchic, internal, and conservative. Major and language were differentiating factors in thinking style preferences; gender was not. However, gender was a differentiating factor within majors and the Afrikaans-speaking group. (EV)
