To achieve the aims of the study, need for cognition and identity styles scales were used. Results showed high level of need for cognition among subjects. However, no statistically significant differences were found in need for cognition, due to student›s gender or grade level. There were statistically significant differences due to the interaction between student›s gender and grade level in the favor of males in 10th basic grade. As for identity styles, results showed that students identity styles were ascendingly ordered as follows: the informational style, the normative style and the diffuse-avoidant style. Furthermore, results showed no statistically significant differences in identity styles due to students’ gender; whereas such differences were found in informational identity style due to grade level in favor of 10th basic grade, as well as in both informational and normative identity styles due to variables interaction.
