Riding’s Cognitive Style Continua (McKay 2000a p.78). This Figure represents the cognitive style model described by Richard Riding and Stephen Rayner in 1998 identifying an individual’s position on both orthogonal continua. An individual’s position on one dimension is independent of their position on the other. The wholist-analytic dimension describes whether an individual tends to process information in wholes or parts, while the verbal-imager dimension describes whether an individual is inclined to represent information verbally or visually during thinking.
