Cognitive styles particularly refer to the individual’s preference to think and perceive the world whereas problem-solving styles refers to the preference of an individual’s method and approaches to solve a particular problem, both of this constitute the basic cognitive processing of human mind. The current study aims to explore the relationship between cognitive styles and problem-solving styles. Data was collected from young adults (n=190) studying social sciences and technical backgrounds. To analyze the data Pearson coefficient correlation was used along with descriptive statistics. The results suggested a statistically significant correlation of systematic cognitive style with sensing problem solving style (r = .184, p<0.05), and feeling problem solving style (r =.174, p<0.05) while a negative correlation was found between systematic cognitive and thinking problem solving style (r = -.103). These results propose crucial insights on how human cognition works when confronting a problem.
