Toplak, Maggie E.; Stanovich, Keith E.
Journal of Educational Psychology, v94 n1 p197-209 Mar 2002
The domain specificity and generality of an important critical thinking skill was examined by administering nine reasoning and decision-making tasks to 125 adults. Performance across tasks displayed considerable domain specificity, but five tasks displayed moderate convergence. Performance on tasks that displayed domain generality was more associated with thinking styles than cognitive ability in regression analyses. (Author)
