The research project focuses on the experimental research study of problem solving, a crucial point is internal representation that is the basis of a hypothesis considered as a potential problem solution. Problem solving is perceived as a flexible interaction of two systems – generator and evaluator of thoughts, that include situation analysis, material analysis and conflict analysis. The aim of the project is to explain the role of personality and cognitive-style components in the problem solving and decision making process. We will develop new, original experimental methods for the assessment of complex problem solving, results will be included in a monograph and partial results will be presented to scientific audience at home and abroad.
