Abstract: Although the field of intellectual styles has a history of nearly eight decades, it has been constantly fighting for its identity due to several major challenges. In this talk, I present these challenges and the key milestones that have contributed towards meeting some of these challenges. At the same time, I shall be discussing how my own research agenda is situated within the larger context of the advancement of the field.
