title Cognitive Styles and Performance in Traditional Versus Digital Design Media
source Computation: The New Realm of Architectural Design [27th eCAADe Conference Proceedings / ISBN 978-0-9541183-8-9] Istanbul (Turkey) 16-19 September 2009, pp. 769-772
summary This paper investigates the interactions between cognitive styles as measured by Riding’s Cognitive Styles Analysis and performance in traditional versus digital design media. An empirical research revealed that design performance in both media correlated with being at the Imager side of the cognitive styles continuum. The Wholist-Analytic dimension was found to be independent from performance. The Bonferroni tests indicated that the digital drafting scores of the Imagers were significantly higher than that of the Verbalisers, but no other significant relation was observed. The findings suggest that drawing with computers entails specific cognitive actions that may favour visual type of individuals.
