Cognitive style as related to emotional empathy

, : Cognitive style as related to emotional empathy. Journal of Dental Education 53(9): 538-541

This study examined relationships among two measures of FDI (the hidden figure test (HFT) and the portable rod and frame test (PRFT) and a measure of interpersonal sensitivity (the questionnaire measure of emotional empathy (QMEE] in a group of dental hygiene students. All measures were administered to 44 dental hygiene students and 42 students enrolled in an introductory psychology course. While the dental hygiene students were more field independent than a previously reported normative sample (t = 24.6 p less than 0.002), they were not characteristically different than a representative group of college students on any of the measures. For students enrolled in the psychology course, but not the dental hygiene students, the more field independent students were, the less empathic they appeared to be. These results do not entirely support previous research indicating that dental hygiene students typically are more field independent.
