Cognitive Styles as Determinants of Success in Professional Activity

1211

Abstract

The paper presents outcomes of a research on the efficiency of working with electronic documents in individuals depending on the specifics of their cognitive styles and on the ways in which text is displayed on a computer screen. A correlation was found between the criteria of success in activity and such cognitive styles as 'field dependence/ filed independence', 'narrow/wide range of equivalence', impulsivity/reflectivity. The research employed a specially developed program module that imitated work of office staff. Cognitive styles were measured with the Embedded Figures Test (Witkin), the Free Sorting Test (Gardner, Kolga) and the Matching Familiar Figures Test (Kagan).
