Abstract:

The author of this study tested whether Turkish prospective teachers' levels of communication skill differed significantly according to submissive acts, self-images drawn from social comparisons, and several other personal variables. A total of 274 persons participated in this study. The Communication Skills Assessment Scale (Korkut, 1996), The Submissive Acts Scale (Gilbert & Allan, Turkish version Sahin & Sahin, 1992), The Social Comparison Scale (Gilbert & Allan, Turkish version Sahin & Sahin, 1992) and a personal information form developed by the author were used for data collection. Results showed that individuals with a positive self-image, those who perceived themselves as popular and assertive, those coming from a higher income status, and individuals with perceived democratic parental styles reported higher levels of communication skills. No significant differences were found in prospective teacher's communication skills according to submissive acts.
