A model is proposed in which the learning of a physical science is related to the reception and perception of information through behaviour expressed in terms of cognitive preference and to the transformation of information which is examined in terms of judgement ability. The nature of cognitive preference and of judgement is defined, and the validity and other statistical credentials of the instruments used to measure these concepts is reported. The nature, stability and structure which is found to underlie cognitive preference supports the contention that cognitive preference may be classified correctly as a cognitive style. The relationships between cognitive preference and the usual parameters of psychological measurement are examined and the whole body of data is related to a tentative model of learning behaviour in order to determine whether deeper insight is available than is possible without the model.
