Abstract: This article briefly identifies and explains the key features of the three constructs, namely thinking, learning styles, and cognition, to show the relationships among them. The constructs have been given different terms like cognitive, teaching, or leadership styles, learner analysis, and psychological types. No matter how they are labeled, these constructs involve mental processes that change insights and thought patterns. The strategies which individuals follow to perceive, think, and process information to achieve their learning goals are equally different. Keefe (1982) provided new insights into cognitive development and academic learning when he said, "Knowledge about learning styles and brain behavior is a fundamental new tool at the service of teachers and schools ... it provides a deeper and more profound view of the learner than previously perceived and is part of a basic framework upon which a sounder theory and practice of learning and instruction may be built."
