Abstract: The aim of the paper is to present the results of an analysis of assessments of the indicators of prediction of cognitive distortions in managerial work (PCD methodology) from the perspective of gender, managerial position, age and length of experience of managers. Based on the sample of 130 managers it was specified that female managers tend to take into account those facts which support their decisions; male managers tend to express their opinions on the topic they do not have sufficient information about; top managers more often ignore the facts they are not interested in and evaluate the situation on the basis of a single event; older managers and more-experienced managers tend to take into account all facts, not only those which support their decisions. Results acquired from the conducted research support the meaningfulness of studying the issue of cognitive distortions, primarily in the context of managerial decision-making.
