Abstract: Cognitive flexibility affects one’s behavior and communication styles. Cognitively flexible people can choose appropriate behavior or verbal response from available options, depending on the situation. They also have a high level of self-efficacy in communication skills. Thirty-two preservice teachers are grouped, based on their cognitive flexibility and asked to discuss an assigned topic using a chat tool. The present study investigates how cognitive flexibility impacts group communication patterns and also overall course performance in an online learning environment.
