Implicit in the conceptualization of listening as human information processing is the assumption that comprehension is dependent, in part, upon an individual's level of cognitive complexity. That assumption u>as tested in two separate studies. Results indicate that high-complex subjects comprehend more listening material than do their cognitively simpler counterparts.
