Abstract:

As part of a long term effort to develop and verify a theory that cognitive styles differ according to differential socialization, and that they in turn affect role behavior in task-oriented decision-making groups, this study tested the hypothesis that strategists would tend to emerge as leaders in groups made up of both puzzle-solvers and strategists. The results tend to confirm the hypothesis.
