This study examined the performance of one’s cognitive abilities during various different mental cognitive load tasks. A stress-inducing task was administered during the course of performing three different kinds of cognitive load tasks. The three types of cognitive load demands included attention, memory and processing change. Participants in this study performed two tasks for each demand. Error rates, number of completed trials, and response times of all three types of cognitive load demand tasks were measured. The results suggest that for attention demand task, the response time decreased as time increased whereas no difference was found in memory demand task. In processing change demand task, the number of completed trials increased as the response time increased. This study shows a change in the performance of cognitive tasks depending on the type of cognitive load, which in turn suggests the importance of implementing different kind of methods and measuring tools when assessing cognitive abilities in individuals.
