ABSTRACT

The main objective of this study was to compare learning styles, resiliency and problem solving skills in Iranian chess players. The approach of this study was a description of cohesion kind. The statistical population included all active chess players with an international rating under chess federation supervision of Islamic Republic of Iran. The sample was based on Morgan table, and the sampling was done by simple method and the number of 306 players was chosen who answered the learning style questionnaire of Clop in 2005, Kaner & Davidson’s Resiliency in 2003, and Kasidi & Long’s problem solving guideline in 1996. The data obtained by Chi-square Test, Kolmogorov-Smirnov Test (KS test), Kruskal-Wallis Test & Spearman correlation Test analyzed by SPSS21. The findings showed that there wasn’t a significant relationship between learning styles with the amount of resiliency and chess players’ problem solving skills. Also there was a positive and powerful relation between the amount of resiliency and chess players solving problem skills. It seems that chess players learning style doesn’t have any effect on the ability of problem-solving skill. In other word, having learning style and different thinking isn’t an advantage although the present research protects the existence of positive meaningful relation between the amount of resiliency and chess players’ problem solving skills.
