This study has two purposes: (1) to investigate direct relationships between individual differences namely age, gender, education level, psychological capital, risk propensity, affective orientation and executives’ use of intuitive decision-making style and (2) to reveal whether there exists moderating role of Covid-19 Anxiety Syndrome on existent relationships. Based on these purposes, an online survey is conducted and data is obtained by snowball sampling from executives in Turkey (N= 327). As a result, findings illustrate that whereas risk propensity and affective orientation are positively associated with intuitive decision-making style; age, gender, education level and psychological capital do not have significant relationships with this style of decision-making. Lastly, Covid-19 Anxiety Syndrome weakens the relationship between psychological capital and intuitive decision-making style.
