Abstract : Human learning consists of certain changes in the relations between a person and his environment. These changes can be as simple and individual or complex and interpersonal. Both general types of human learning, individual and interpersonal, are essential to human existence and normally not independent. The paper reports on a study of interpersonal learning. First, the nature of the study of interpersonal learning is discussed. Second, interpersonal learning is contrasted with task learning and the study of the effects of cognitive complexity on these two types of learning is considered. (Author)
