Title
Cognitive Styles and Word Versus Spirit Orientations Among Christians
Abstract

Christian college students classified as either Word or Spirit-oriented through a questionnaire were tested with the Rod and Frame Apparatus. Word-oriented subjects were found to be field-independent and Spirit-oriented subjects to be field-dependent in their perceptual style. No sex difference on field dependence or independence was found within either the Word-oriented or the Spirit-oriented groups, but a significant difference in sex distribution of Word or Spirit-orientation was found. Socialization and sex expectation effects in the churches and implications for these findings and further studies were discussed.
