The main aim of this research was to examine the cognitive flexibility and emotional reactivity levels of preschool teacher candidates. Within the framework of this main aim, it was investigated whether there was a significant relationship between the cognitive flexibility and emotional reactivity levels of preschool teacher candidates. In addition, it was investigated that whether the cognitive flexibility and emotional reactivity levels of the preschool teacher candidates varied significantly by age, grade level, income level, number of siblings, reasons of choosing preschool teaching program, type of place they live in, state of being interested in any type of sport and parental attitude they perceive, or not. The relational screening model was used in the research. The study group of the research consists of 143 university students studying in the preschool teaching graduate program of the education faculty of a private university in Istanbul province. ‘Personal Information Form’, ‘Cognitive Flexibility Inventory’ and ‘Emotional Reactivity Scale’ were used as data collection tools in the research. The Emotional Reactivity Scale was developed by Nock, Wedig, Holmberg and Hooley (2008) and adapted to Turkish by Seçer, Halmatov and Gençdoğan (2013). The Cognitive Flexibility Inventory was developed by Dennis and Wal (2010) and adapted to Turkish by Sapmaz and Doğan (2013). The data were analyzed using the SPSS 20.0 program. First, it was determined whether the data showed normal distribution. Then, in accordance with the normality of the distribution; Pearson Product-Moment Correlation Coefficient Analysis, Kruskal Wallis H Test, Mann Whitney-U Test, One-Way Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) and Independent Group T Test were used to analyze the data. The results obtained from the research were as follows: As the cognitive flexibility level of preschool teacher candidates increases, emotional reactivity level of preschool teacher candidates decreases. The cognitive flexibility and emotional reactivity levels of the preschool teacher candidates did not vary significantly by age, grade level, number of sibling, type of place they live in; but varied significantly by income level, reasons of choosing preschool teaching program, state of being interested in any type of sport and parental attitude they perceive.
