'Cognitive component' is a socio-psychological term used to describe a person's belief or knowledge about something. It is one of the three types of 'attitudes'.

The other two are:

  • Affective component: Someone's emotions or feelings towards something.
  • Behavioral/conative component: The way someone's attitude affects the way they choose to behave or react.
