Annotation: This article examines the problem of studying anxiety and empathy within the framework of the splitting of the poles of the cognitive style of analyticity/synthetics in subjects aged 17-18. The study was carried out using the following methods – “Free sortingˮ by Riley W. Gardner modified by Voldemar Kolga, “Diagnostics of the level of empathyˮ by Il’dar Yusupov, “State-Trait Anxiety Inventoryˮ by Charles Donald Spielberger and Juri Hanin. The study involved 80 students. Using the methodology “Free sortingˮ by R.W. Gardner, modified by V.A. Kolga, the following groups were identified in the sample of subjects: synthetics/categorisers, synthetics/globalists, analysts/differentiators and analysts/detailisers. Diagnostics according to the methodology “State-Trait Anxiety Inventory” by Ch.D. Spielberger and J. Hanin made it possible to identify high, medium, and low levels of anxiety. Analysis of the research results using the methodology “Diagnostics of the level of empathyˮ by I.M. Yusupov determined the presence in the sample of students of very high, high, medium and low levels of development of empathy. The group of synthetics/categorisers and analysts/differentiators were distinguished by low and medium levels of anxiety, high and medium levels of empathy development. The group of synthetics/globalists and analysts/detailisers was characterised by a high level of anxiety, low and medium levels of development of empathy.
Keywords: cognitive style, synthetics/categorisers, synthetics/globalists, analysts/differentiators, analysts/detailing, anxiety, empathy
