Filinkova E.B., Ph.D. in Psychology, Professor in Department of Social Psychology, Moscow Regional State University, Moscow, Russia, jane421@yandex.ru
Abstract
The paper focuses on psychological readiness of teachers at different education levels for administrative activities. The study employed a questionnaire “Psychological Readiness for Administrative Position in Workers” and 11 techniques aimed at measuring different personality traits. The sample included 744 teachers and 284 workers of other professions. It was revealed that there is a difference in psychological readiness for administrative position between workers depending on the type of their occupation. Teachers are less prepared to carry out administrative duties than workers of other professions, and their overall level of readiness is average. High levels of psychological readiness are found in teachers with a pronounced desire to succeed, positive perceptions of their abilities to manage their own emotions and those of other people, high risk readiness, low anxiety and a strong attitude towards power.
