For statistical analysis of data obtained. t-test, one way variance analysis (ANOVA) and multiple regression analysis tests were applied. It can be affirmed that assumed precursor variables of gender, marital status, type of institution, service period, status of receiving inservice training, sports playing, artiness and perceived communication styles couldn’t predict dysfunctional attitude scores of teachers at a significant level whereas gender (β=-.138) is the only and the strongest variable to predict dysfunctional attitude scores of teachers at a certain level (t=-1.984, p=.049)
