Abstract:The following specific findings resulted from the study. There were significant, but weak correlational relationships between intention (.31), goals (.46), and cognitive risk-taking (.36) with expertise in troubleshooting. Analyses of the relationships were made using a three-predictor model and multiple regression procedures. Results showed that intention, goals, and cognitive risk-taking account for 27% (R2) of the variance in expertise (F (3, 71) = 8.56, p = .01). These findings indicate that an affective component may play a role in the development of expertise along with knowledge and skill components.
