摘要:  认知闭合需要反应了个体在不确定情景中的认知动机, 在信息爆炸不断加重认知负荷的今天具有重要研究意义。研究梳理了认知闭合需要的概念结构与测量工具, 总结了近30年来相关研究在人格特质、信息加工、决策偏好、态度信念和精神健康等领域的研究结果, 最终指出区分“能力”和“动机”是未来研究的正确走向。此外, 未来的研究还应深入探讨认知闭合需要的概念与结构, 正确使用和合理开发相关测量工具, 并且丰富对其前因变量的实证研究。

关键词: 认知闭合需要, 朴素认知论, 实证研究

Abstract:  Need for cognitive closure is referred to describe an individual’s epistemic motivation to form a firm answer to a question under uncertain circumstances. In the era of information explosion, the cognitive load of individuals has been rapidly increasing. Therefore, in-depth research of NFCC is of great importance in modern times. Diving into the conceptual structure and measurements of NFCC, along with related research over the past thirty years in areas including personality, information processing, decision making, attitudes, beliefs, and mental health, this article proposes that distinguishing ability from motivation is of necessity. Furthermore, this article urges future researchers to conduct empirical study on NFCC in terms of the in-depth discussion of its concept, dimension, measurements and antecedents.

Key words: need for cognitive closure, lay epistemology, empirical study
