International Journal of Higher Education, v6 n6 p170-179 2017
The aim of this study is to investigate the blind and constructive patriotism tendencies of university students in light of the demographic structure and variables. The investigation is performed by using the correlational descriptive model. The purposeful sampling technique has been used and data was collected from a total of 390 university students. 225 (57.7%) of the participants were female and 165 (42.3%) were male; the age group of participants ranged from 18 to 26 years with a mean age of 20.42 (SD = 1.88). Demographic Information Form, Patriotism Attitude Scale and Relational, Individual and Collective Self Aspects Scale have been applied to the participants. The correlation, t-test, analysis of variance and regression analysis techniques were used in the analysis of the data. The obtained results reveal that, the blind patriotism scores of the participants show a significant difference according to sex. Also it was found that, the blind patriotism scores vary according to the city in which participants live. On the other hand, we conclude that there is a relationship between the blind patriotism and relational and collective aspect of the self. In addition, it has been seen that there is a significant relationship between the constructive patriotism and the relational aspect, individual and collective aspect of the self. Additionally, the collective self-aspect is a significant predictor of constructive patriotism.
