The purpose of present study was to evaluate the correlation between impulsivity, need for cognition and problem solving performance.

Results : Findings show negative correlation between problem solving performance and impulsivity and positive correlation between problem solving and need for cognition. Duration of problem solving was not correlated with need for cognition and impulsivity.

Conclusion : Pearson coefficient of correlation show that individuals with high level of need for cognition had better performance in problem solving accuracy but duration of problem solving is not related to impulsivity and need for cognition. [ZJRMS, 2012 14(1): 76-81 ]
