EasyChair Preprint no. 6098

Abstract

We investigated the association between thinking dispositions (need for cognition and actively open-minded thinking) with two outcomes of multiple-texts comprehension: integration of conflicting information and recall of inferential information. The participants were 73 university students who completed questionnaires on control variable measures (perceived knowledge and beliefs) and thinking dispositions, read two contradictory texts, wrote an argumentative essay, and recalled the information read one month later. Argumentative essays were coded by intertextual integration, recalls by number of valid inferences. Need for cognition was indirectly associated with intertextual integration. Actively-openminded thinking was associated with inferences recalled.

Keyphrases: actively-openminded thinking, multiple text comprehension, Need for cognition, Recall, thinking dispositions
