Abstract


The aim of this study was to investigate the relationships between cognitive styles with entrepreneurship characteristics of bachelor’s students in Taft Payam Noor University.  This describe-correlative research was based on the data collected through field methods. The statistical sample included 2496 bachelor’s students. A sample size of 352 individuals was determined by stratified random sampling method. Following data collection and analysis, models for path analysis were designed by the software LISREL to study the relationships between Gregoric cognitive styles with entrepreneurship characteristics. Results of the the hypotheses showed that there were significant, direct, and positive relationships between three cognitive styles and entrepreneurship characteristics. The cognitive styles in order of concrete-sequential 45% (cs), abstract-sequential 29% (as), and abstract-random showed the highest and lowest significant positive relationship to the entrepreneurship characteristics. However, there was not a significantly direct correlation between the cognitive styles of objective-random 0.0% (cr) with the entrepreneurship characteristics. The results also show that the cognitive styles of objective-sequential, abstract-sequential, concrete-random, and abstract-random altogether could explain 75% of changes in the entrepreneurial characteristics.
