This book is an outcome of the research work conducted for the degree of Doctor of Philosophy from the University of Delhi, Delhi. This work joins the new paradigm in Psychology, which is governed by the study of processes rather than products. It was heralded by the Information-Processing theory. The strategies evolved by the young school-going Indian children for voyaging through their perceived cognitive 'problem-space' towards solving a problem/making a decision were delineated and also analysed in terms of their psycho-sociological variables. The ingenious construction of the 'problem series' utilising indigenous materials is a significant contribution to the field of Cognitive Psychology where the lack of testing materials is strongly felt even today. The present research work points towards utilization of the science of Computer for psychological investigations. The importance of this work was internationally recognized when the author was invited to present it at the First Asian Regional Conference of the International Association for Cross Cultural Psychology, University of Hong Kong in March 1979. Printed Pages: 196.
