The correlation study focuses on the application of the possibility of assessment of characteristics of the cognitive style in the dimension Analytical - Intuitive (AI) to the performance of tasks of decision-making under the time pressure. Research was conducted with two groups of students with different study orientation (students of engineering, n = 75 and management, n = 96) and both men and women. It was used the questionnaire method, the Slovak version of CSI (Allinson, Hayes, 1996), to assess cognitive style (AI) and performance level of decision-making under the time pressure (Komarkova, 1993). Results showed a statistically significant relationship between the number of solved tasks and preference for intuitive cognitive style, r = - 0.18, p < 0.05 (evaluated for both groups of participants, n = 164); intuitive participants tackled more tasks under the time pressure than analytical, but this did not relate to the number of correct solutions (r = -0.13, ns) and incorrect solutions r = 0.006, ns. Also a statistically significant relationship between age of participants and number of solved tasks in the test of decision making under the time pressure (RCS) r = 0.23, p < 0.05, n = 164 (in both groups of participants) is interesting. The author considers this result only in a limited way due to the relatively same age or small difference in the age of participants.
