Cognitive styles are persistent patterns of behaviour that determine how an individual acquires and processes information. The concept of cognitive styles is one that crosses many disciplines. Initially part of the realm of Jungian psychology, cognitive style research is now an important part of fields such as, education, computer programming, and information science. All of these fields have common goals for studying cognitive style, namely, how users process information and how systems can be better built to accommodate the diversity of the user population. The purpose of this paper is to highlight some of the research that has been done on user cognitive style and searching in virtual environments. This study which is informed by cognitive styles theories is a descriptive study that examined the interactive effects of cognitive styles and their influence on academic performance.
