Thinking styles and performance.

Cognitive style is widely recognized as an important determinant of individual behavior in the psychology literature and has been conceptualized as a "high-order heuristic that individuals employ when they approach, frame, and solve problems". However, there is conflicting evidence in the literature as to the ways in which cognitive styles facilitates or inhibit performance. This review assesses what we know about the predictive role of cognitive style on performance and suggests avenues for future research.
