The results of non-parametric testing give proof that there is a statistically significant dependence between the type of decision problem and decision-making style, "Intuitive" and "Sensing".

The results gave proof of a strong statistically significant difference in score of decision-making style, "Intuitive" and "Sensing" between groups of current leading position. The difference in scoring for "Thinking" and "Feeling" as decision-making styles was confirmed to be statistically significant even in functional areas of control. Subsequently, the size of this difference was calculated.
