The main goals of stylistics are discovering individual aspects, stylistic similarities, and individualities in different works. But can these goals be reached by cognitive stylistic? This research demonstrates by logical argument and poetry examples that cognitive stylistic cannot be used to discover literary distinguished and stylization aspects. In the stylistic domain, this perspective can be used to discover general, periodic, or discourse styles. For this purpose, we showed that discovering individuality and stylistic distinctions are the basis of stylistic studies. Then we define cognitive stylistic as a branch of stylistic. In the next part of the article, it is determined that literary works are accepted generally when they place in general culture cycle which is the birthplace of repetitive cultural metaphors. After that, as a practical proof for the research claim, we analyzed some works of post-Nima mainstream leaders and classical Persian poetry. Results showed that cognitive systems manifested in these poets' works are similar. Finally, we concluded that cognitive stylistic cannot be considered as a reliable research perspective to discover cognitive individuality.
