The study in Urdaneta City, Pangasinan, focused on the barangay captains, kagawads, secretaries, treasurers, and SK chairman to determine the barangay authorities' decision-making process in light of De Bono's six thinking hats. Effective decision-making will be a fundamental aspect of how public authorities address key goals. To guide the anticipated rapid expansion, an efficient decision-making process that makes use of data, expertise, and tried-and-true frameworks and processes is required. Based on the officials' age, sex, rank, and number of years of service, the barangay authorities were split into different categories. It can be used to swiftly determine the strategies used by barangay officials. Funding the significant differences in the barangay officials' decisions based on sex, age, and years of service is also essential. To acquire a clear picture of the barangay official's decision-making, a descriptive survey was used in the majority of cases. To identify the different modes of thought employed by the barangay officials, the researcher tallied up the individual responses' scores for each indicator of the six thinking caps. The statistical significance of the difference between the thinking headwear of male and female barangay council members was determined using the t-test. ANOVA was also used to determine whether there was a statistically significant difference between the places of the respondents. In this study, barangay officials tended to wear yellow hats more frequently than green, blue, green, black, or black caps. The decisions made by the barangay officials do not differ considerably based on sex. Based on age, there is a discernible difference in how they approach making decisions. Additionally, an analysis using groups based on service length reveals differences in their approaches to decision-making.
