Mixed reality (MR) provides exciting interaction approaches in several applications. The user experience of interacting in these visually rich environments depends highly on the way the user perceives, processes, and comprehends visual information. In this work we are investigating the differences between Field Dependent – Field Independent users towards their interaction behavior in a MR environment when they were asked to perform a specific task. A study was conducted using Microsoft HoloLens device in which participants interacted with a popular HoloLens application, modified by the authors to log user interaction data in real time. Analysis of the results demonstrates the differences in the visual processing of information, especially in visually complex environments and the impact on the user's interaction behavior.
