Purpose: In this study, the aim was to investigate pre–service teachers’ cognitive flexibility in terms of specific variables and determine the relationship between pre–service teachers’ cognitive flexibility and interpersonal problem solving skills.
Research Methods: The study was designed in descriptive correlation model.
In addition, there was a relationship between pre–service teachers’ cognitive flexibility and interpersonal problem solving skills.
Implications for Research and Practice: It has been shown that pre–service teachers, who are cognitively flexible, are able to solve problems constructively and persistently.Contact us if you experience any difficulty logging in.(Volume 19, Number 2) Read the Full Text (PDF, HTML) In the modern world, most problems—whether they be at work, at home, or in communities—require that teams work together to find solutions.Combining idiosyncratic knowledge of people to achieve common goals is the very essence of collaborative problem solving (CPS).But education and training in CPS—both in schools and the workplace—has not kept up with the demands for those collaborative skills.Exercisers were required to maintain a 50 to 75 percent maximum heart rate during their assigned physical activity.During both the mental and physical activities and afterwards, each participant was given another set of MRI scans and tested for brain function.Data were collected via the Cognitive Flexibility Inventory and Interpersonal Problem Solving Inventory from 531 pre–service teachers who studied in the Primary Teacher Training Departments during the fall semester of the 2017–2018 academic years.Findings: The findings indicated that there were significant differences according to gender and maternal education status, while there were no significant differences according to class level, department, and fathers’ education status, socio–economic and socio–cultural status.Hesse (Leibniz-Institut fur Wissensmedien, Tübingen, Germany and Department for Applied Cognitive and Media Psychology, University of Tübingen).The authors argue that the complexity of most problems in the modern world makes them unsolvable by a single individual; instead, a team is required to solve them.
