The role played by cognitive style upon sense of presence has been addressed in the presence literature. However, no experimental study was carried out in order to investigate this hypothesized relationship. This paper highlights the relationship between each of four bi-polar dimensions of cognitive style, such as extraversion–introversion, sensing–intuition, thinking– feeling and judging –perceiving, and the experienced level of sense of presence. Implications of these individual differences for understanding sense of presence and for designing virtual environments to address these differences are discussed.
