In this study we aimed to analyze the correlation between risk decision-making and framing effect. Thus, we examined two hypotheses, namely: a) there is a significant relationship between the types of framing and the types of decisions; (B) there is a significant relationship between the need for justification of the decision and type of decision taking. This study involved a total of 173 adolescents. The average age was m=17.77 years old and the standard deviation SD=0.04. Participants were given two problems making decisions in risky situations. The data collected were processed using The Chi-square of association. The obtained results support the research hypotheses.
