Measuring Cognitive Complexity in the Accounting Domain

Kung H. Chen and Steven K. Olson
This paper discusses the potential important of considering individual differences, variables such as cognitive complexity, in accounting research. An instrument for measuring cognitive complexity in an accounting domain is presented and compared with an instrument which measures cognitive complexity in the interpersonal domain. The comparison indicates that the two measures are not statistically correlated.
