in the education sector, it is stated that toxic leadership has four dimensions including self-interest, selfishness, inappreciativeness and negative spiritual state; on the other hand, in Schmidt's study (2003), while it is stated that it has been formed of five dimensions including self-promotion, abusive supervision, unpredictability, narcissism and authoritarian leadership.
In the scale developed via a practice in the education sector, there are 30 statements and 4 sub-dimensions which are inappreciativeness (11 statements), self-interest (9 statements), selfishness (5 statements) and negative spiritual state (5 statements).
As a result of the analysis conducted, it was found that this structure with four factors explained 86% of total variance and in the next stage the scale was included to the analyses in this structure with four factors as "inappreciativeness," "self-interest," "selfishness," and "negative spiritual state".
When the results of ANOVA test which compared the participants' means regarding toxic leadership sub-dimensions with their ages are examined, the means regarding inappreciativeness (F=10.267; p<0.001), self-interest (F=7.350; p<0.001), selfishness (F=9.356; p<0.001) and negative spiritual state (F=10.033; p<0.001) sub-dimensions showed statistically significant differences according to the ages of employees.
