Abstract

Background : Problem solving is an axial ability of educational promotion. Impulsive individual against reflectivity has fewer tendencies to involve in solving different problems. The purpose of present study was to evaluate the correlation between impulsivity, need for cognition and problem solving performance.

Materials and Method : In this study, 72 individuals were randomly selected. Missionaries and cannibal's problem, Barrat Impulsivity Scale (BIS-11) and need for cognition scale were used for evaluation.

Results : Findings show negative correlation between problem solving performance and impulsivity and positive correlation between problem solving and need for cognition. Duration of problem solving was not correlated with need for cognition and impulsivity.

Conclusion : Pearson coefficient of correlation show that individuals with high level of need for cognition had better performance in problem solving accuracy but duration of problem solving is not related to impulsivity and need for cognition. [ZJRMS, 2012 14(1): 76-81 ]
