چکیده    The purpose of the present correlational research is investigating the relationship between dimensions of reflectivity/impulsivity as cognitive styles and language proficiency in the iranian learners who are studying english as a foreign language. the participants of the study consisted of 120 undergraduate students studying efl at islamic azad university of bandar abbas who were randomly selected. two instruments were used to gather the needed data: 1) a 12-item matching familiar figures test (mfft) developed by kagan in 1964 for the purpose of distinguishing the bipolar trait of reflectivity/impulsivity; and 2) farhady's test of english as a foreign language (toefl) for the purpose of measuring the degree of the participants' language proficiency. the data collected were analyzed through a combination of descriptive and inferential statistics. the results indicated that although there is no significant relationship between the dimensions of reflectivity and language proficiency, a slight negative correlation is found between the dimensions of impulsivity and language proficiency but it is not sound significant. in addition, the findings show no meaningful and significant relationship between dimensions of reflectivity/impulsivity and student's general achievements as measured by grade pont averages (gpas). but the results show that the relationship between language proficiency and general achievements is meaningful and significant.
