Abstract

Present study aimed to analyze self-confidence and cultural intelligence of physical education and science and literature education teacher candidates mutually. Quantitative cross-sectional study design was used in the study and 320 teacher candidates voluntarily participated. The participants were chosen according to convenient sampling method. To collect data, self-confidence scale (AKIN, 2007) and cultural intelligence inventory (ILHAN; CETIN, 2014) were used. In the analyses of the data independent samples t test and partial correlation test controlling for faculty variable was used. As a result, present paper showed that physical education teacher candidates had higher self-confidence and metacognitive cultural intelligence than science and literature teacher candidates. On the other hand, science and literature teacher candidates had higher levels of cognitive and behavioral cultural intelligence than physical education teacher candidates. Self-confidence and cultural intelligence correlated each other.
