Information processing tendencies of attitudes to places were investigated. An attitude is defined as a construct that represents a person's like or dislike for an object. Preferences derived from attitudes towards places were assessed by means of a Likert-type questionnaire with four response alternatives. Participants were 23 students from the Department of Environmental Studies. Information processing tendencies were grounded in the theory of Meaning that deals with identifying sets of cognitive processes involved in the successful performance of diverse acts. Information processing tendencies were assessed by means of the meaning test. Correlation tests were used to analyze associations between attitudes towards places and information processing tendencies of meaning inputs. Preliminary results obtained from an analysis on preferences for open vs. closed spaces showed that in both cases the meaning dimensions of locational qualities and of the state of the object are high, and differ significantly from those who do not care about either. However, individuals with preferences for open places scored higher in positive emotions, and those with preferences for close places scored higher in negative emotions. Grasping the atmosphere of a place was correlated positively with emotions and locational qualities, judgments and evaluations, and metaphors. Participants concerned with matching specific behavior to specific places scored higher in the cognitive processes relating to locational qualities, judgments and evaluations, and functions. Those caring about orientation in space differed from the rest in higher scores on the dimensions of locational qualities and quantity, as well as in anxiety.
