Abstract : The primary objective of this research was to demonstrate that the interface language used for man computer interactive problem solving could be varied in complexity with significant impact on the effectiveness of the problem solving effort. It was expected that the optimal interface complexity would vary depending upon psychological characteristics of individual problem solvers. (Modified author abstract)
