Özet

Determining students leadership behaviors, their multiple intelligences and the relationship between these two variables could be helpful in many ways. We initially thought that there is a correlation between some of the intelligence types and leadership behaviors. We also hypothesized that some of the intelligence types contribute to leadership behaviors of students. The aim of this study was to determine the participants' leadership behaviors and their multiple intelligences and the second aim of this study was to find the relationship between these two variables. 1199 students from 15 universities' schools of physical education and sports participated to our study and filled the questionnaires. Some gender differences were found. Moreover, Pearson's correlation analysis revealed that, most of the variables in multiple intelligences and leadership were significantly correlating with each other at very high level. Additionally, it was found that intrapersonal intelligence, logical/mathematical intelligence and bodily-kinesthetic intelligence contribute to initiation of structure and total leadership behaviors.
