  • Professor. Dr. Kadhum Muhsin Ghuwaitea Al-Ka'by


 The aim of the current research is to identify the relationship of holistic thinking to the cognitive style (absorptive - receptive) among university students, and what is the relationship between them. From (30) paragraphs, the psychometric characteristics of the research sample (400) male and female students from the university who were chosen randomly were calculated.

After collecting the information and processing it statistically, the researcher reached the following results:

  1. 1. Holistic thinking is inherent in the basic activities of the cognitive processes of the individual, and they represent conscious processes.
  2. 2. University students, in general, enjoy a cognitive method (absorptive - receptive), whether it is for males or females, or for scientific or human specialization, as it appears that the arithmetic mean of the sample scores is greater than the hypothetical average of the scale, which indicates that the sample students use the processes of Cognitive processes in their learning process and achieving success at the cognitive level.
  3. 3. There is a positive significant correlation between holistic thinking and the cognitive style (absorptive - receptive) for the research sample and for both sexes (males - females) and specialization (scientific - human). Based on the results of the current research, some recommendations and future proposals were reached.
