Data were gathered by using Linda Dalberg et.al’s(1387) questionnaire of social problem solving and Kolab’s cognitive styles questionnaires. The data were analyzed by multiple regression, one way ANOVA, and Tooky tests . Results: The results showed that cognitive styles predicted changes on social problem solving up to 8 percent (p= 0/001). Cognitive Styles involved 4 types: divergent, assimilation, convergent, and accommodation cognitive styles which explained changes in social problem solving ability. Results also showed that significant differences in social problem solving are based on different cognitive styles. (p < 0/001).
