Examination Of The Spiritual Intelligence Properties Of Turkish Education Students İn Terms Of Different Variables
 
Abstract
The purpose of this study is to examine the spiritual intelligence characteristics of the students of the Department of Turkish Language with respect to their gender, grade level, self-regulation skills, academic success, reading book habits and social media use habits. The relationship between the spiritual intelligence characteristics and the self-regulation skills of the students is also examined in this study. The study is a quantitative study carried out in the relational screening model. The study was carried out with the data obtained from 183 preservice teachers 59 of whom are male, and 124 of whom are female, receiving education at the Education Faculty, Department of Turkish Language, in the 2015-2016 academic year. The data necessary to carry out the research were collected by using the personal information form, “Spiritual Intelligence Characteristics Scale” and “Self-Regulatıon Scale”. The independent t-Test, single-factor ANOVA, and Pearson Product-Moment Correlation Coefficient were used in the analysis of the data. As a result of this study, it was concluded that the spiritual intelligence characteristics of the students did not vary depending on their gender and grade level. Along with this, while a significant relationship at a low level was found between the spiritual intelligence characteristics and book reading habit and self-regulation skills, no relationship was found between the academic success and social media use habits. When the study results are taken into consideration, making the students gain book reading habit may be beneficial to increase the spiritual intelligence levels. Furthermore, the spiritual intelligence data may be benefited from to make the students acquire self-regulation skill.
