A STUDY OF THE FIELD DEPENDENCEINDEPENDENCE COGNITIVE STYLE OF COLLEGE STUDENTS
Zhang Weidong (Psychology Department, East China Normal University)
undergraduates from 21 majors were investigated on their field dependence-independence(FD-FI), and arecent nerm was obtained.The results demonstrated that the individua differences in FD-FI were normally distributed,with the average scores 13.7 and the standard deviation(SD) 4.6 derived from the Cognitive Style Figure Test. On the basis of the above analysis, further study was made on the two factors which reportedly could influence the development of FD-FI. The present study showed that the difference of FD-FI among male and female undergraduates had almost but not yet reached the significant Ievel.whereas the speciality differentiation was the main factor which could independently lead to the significantly different distribution of field dependence-independence individuals.
