Abstract

This paper is a review of research studies on disciplinary differences in specifically individual attributes: thinking and learning styles, motivational goal orientations, and epistemological beliefs. The paper begins with individual differences in learning, what is the thinking style (in term of procedural thinking), what is the learning style, the motivational goal orientation, the epistemological belief, how these factors are important, and disciplinary differences. Moreover, we point to the importance of personal attributes enhancing the students' learning performance and varying across disciplinary areas.
