ABSTRACT
This study analyzed the proactive and reactive personality traits in teachers and students. These traits were interpreted with the help of the ideas and images revealed through metaphors. With the help of these metaphors, the certain imaginative categories and statements of student teachers about the teacher, the student and teacher-student relationship were associated with both reactive and proactive personality models. The sampling of the study involved 330 Biology, Physics and Chemistry track students at Hacettepe University, Faculty of Education. As the metaphors of student teachers were examined in terms of the teacher-student relationship, “teacher is proactive and student is reactive” was found to be the common dominant view.
