In this study that is conducted to examine the thinking styles of vocational high school students in different situations they encountered, it was investigated whether there is a meaningful relation between their thinking styles and their major, grades, genders, types of education, and ages or not. Descriptive scanning model was used in the study. The "Thinking Styles Scale" developed by Sünbül (2004) was used to determine students' thinking styles in a study carried out on a total of 130 students from Ondokuz May?s University, Vezirköprü Vocational School.
