Differences in Thinking Styles of Artists and Engineers
Gridley, Mark C.
Career Development Quarterly, v56 n2 p177-182 Dec 2007
Seventy-one professional fine artists and 147 engineers completed Sternberg's Intellectual Styles Questionnaire (R. J. Sternberg & R. K. Wagner, 1991). Artists preferred less external input in their work than engineers preferred, and engineers were more inclined to prioritize their thinking. Artists preferred devising their own plans significantly more than did engineers. (Contains 3 tables.)
