All data were analyzed with descriptive and path analysis statistics.


The results showed; an environmental supports, personality characteristics, and orientations had direct effect on personal initiative (β = .23, .09 and .50 respectively), and environmental supports, knowledge skills and ability, had indirect effect on personal initiative with mediator orientations (β = .19, .44 and .27 respectively), which all variables had predicted personal initiative at 51% (R2 = .51, p < .01). The correlational model was congruent with the empirical data (P-value = .307, χ2 = 1.044, DF = 1, CMIN/DF = 1.044, GFI = .998, AGFI = .976, RMR = .060, CFI = .1.000, RMR = .000, RMSEA = .013).
