The understanding of dynamics of self regulation in working women who on one hand are always under divergent pressures of performances and meet diverse kind of expectations on the other hand show relatively better volitional controls over their behavior, becomes important. This study examined the links between self regulation and cognitive functions in a sample of 318 working women. Cognitive functions were assessed through problem solving and cognitive interference. Results indicated that there is highly positive and significant association between self regulation and problem solving capacity (P< .01) and the capacity to handle cognitive interference (P< .01). Additional analysis demonstrated that women with sharp cognitive functions were high on self regulation as compared to women with disrupted cognitive functions.
