To collect the data, teacher sense of efficacy scale and The Keirsey Temperament Sorter-II were used. The Cronbach's Alpha coefficients were computed as 0.940 and 0.762 respectively for these scales. In addition to descriptive statistics, chi-square test and Pearson correlation coefficient were used to analyze the data. According to the results of the study, self-efficacy perceptions of student teachers were found high.
