Abstract

This study examined the relationship between perfectionism and anger states of Physical Education and Sports Teacher candidates (PESTC), and whether or not perfectionism sub-dimension scores were predictive of anger scores. A total of 130 students were participated. The Multidimensional Perfectionism Scale and The State-Trait Anger Scale were used to determine the perfectionism and anger states. Pearson Product-Moment Correlation Analysis results indicated that a positive significant relationship between socially prescribed perfectionism and the anger subscales state anger, anger-in and anger-out, while a negative significant relationship was found between socially prescribed perfectionism and anger-control. Additionally, Multi-Directional Regression Analysis results revealed that only socially prescribed perfectionism predicts anger subscale scores were at a significant level.  Self-oriented and other-oriented perfectionism were not found to be significant in the prediction of anger subscales. In conclusion, the perfectionism as a personality character for PESTC should not be result in anger behavior during physical education processes.
