Abstract

The basic aim of the study was to check the validity of Sternberg's theory of mental self[1]government in the Pakistani context. Moreover, the study also investigated the relationship between students’ thinking styles and their academic achievement at the university level. Students’ thinking styles were assessed by using the Thinking Styles Inventory-Revised II, while students' CGPA was used as a measurement of student academic achievement. Data were collected from 86 students of Master of Education, Masters of English and Bachelors of Mathematics studying in University of Education Attock Campus. Pearson correlation and MANOVA were applied to analyze the data. Results show that students having conservative and oligarchic thinking styles perform better as compared to other thinking styles.
