This paper reports on a study that compares the problem-solving style, in terms of adaption and innovation, of Information Systems and Computer Science majors. The adaption/innovation characterization of problem-solving styles was developed by Kirton and is measured by Kirton’s Adaption-Innovation inventory. This is a well-validated instrument that measures the respondent’s preferred approach to problem-solving.
