It was determined that the item factor loads of the scale ranged between 0.35 and 0.82. As a result of the exploratory factor analysis, a structure with 40 items and three factors that explained 67.12% of the total variance was obtained. It was concluded that the correlation values (.191- .311) between the sub-dimensions were appropriate, and the fit indices of the scale were significant (X2=726,66 sd=408, p=.00, X2/sd=1.78).
