Investigation of Relationship between Prospective Teachers’ Need for Cognition Level and Individual Innovativeness State

The aim of this study is to examine the relationship between prospective teachers’ need for cognition level and state of individual innovativeness. The correlational survey method has been used in this study and the sample of the study is comprised of 507 prospective teachers 351 (69.2 %) of whom are female and 156 (30.8 %) of whom are male. The data of the study has been collected via “Need for Cognition Scale” developed by Cacioppo, Petty & Kao, (1984), adopted to Turkish by Gülgöz & Sadowski (1995) and “Individual Innovativeness Scale” developed by Hurt, Joseph and Cook (1977) and adapted to Turkish by Kılıçer & Odabaşı (2010). The results of analysis have showed that prospective teachers have a moderate level of need for cognition while their individual innovativeness state is determined to be in category of interrogators. In addition, a positive relation has been observed between prospective teachers’ need for cognition level and their individual innovativeness state. Finally, prospective teachers' need for cognition level has been determined to be a significant predictor of their individual innovativeness state.
