There are statistically significant differences in the cognitive style (flexibility) due to residence in favor of urban residents. There are differences in the cognitive style (rigidity-flexibility) among Al-Quds Open University students, due to gender in favor of males. There are no differences in the level of information processing among Al-Quds Open University students due to either gender or residence.
