A new method for determining individual differences
in information processing was developed and
illustrated. The measure, Visual Selective Attention,
was constructed according to the parameters and
specifications of a standardized measure of auditory
selective attention. Emphasis was placed upon establishing
the relationship of this new measure with
traditional measures of information processing (i.e.,
perceptual style and selective attention). The results
provided initial evidence for the reliability and validity
of the new measure. Applications for Visual
Selective Attention and interpretation of the findings
are discussed in view of the current state of the
information-processing literature. Implications for
additional research focus upon the practical applications
of the new measure.
