Online Submission, US-China Education Review B v5 n1 p27-34 Jan 2015
The sampling of the present study consists of 92 volunteer physical education teachers (59 male and 33 female) who work at state and private primary schools (of the Ministry of Education) in Canakkale in the academic year 2013-2014. To identify the personality traits of the participants, Personality Inventory (PERI) was utilized. PERI consists of five factors, namely, openness to experience, conscientiousness, extraversion, agreeableness, and neuroticism. The inventory was administered face-to-face. Specialities and personality traits of physical education teachers were compared for the purpose of the study. Kruskal-Wallis test and Mann-Whitney U test were utilized to analyze the obtained data. The results revealed a significant correlation between specialities and personality traits of physical education teachers only in terms of emotional stability and compatibility domains (p < 0.05), but not of other three factors. Moreover, no statistically significant difference was discovered between sports types (team or individual sports) and personality traits of physical education teachers (p > 0.05).
