Testing of the scale of assertiveness as a predictor of willingness for teamwork Regression analysis Regression analyses tried to determine whether, based on the respondents scoring on the Scale of Assertiveness, their responses towards teamwork could be anticipated using the obtained attitude factors - Inability to Identify the Team Dynamics and Orientation Towards Individuality. The independent, predictor variable in both analyses was the scoring on the Scale of Assertiveness, while the criterion, the dependent variable was the respondents scoring on the factors Inability to Identify the Team Dynamics and Orientation Towards Individuality. Based on the conducted regression analysis, it can be concluded that the respondents scoring on the…show more content…
In other words, respondents with lower scores on the applied scale of assertiveness have difficulties to compromise and they express a different opinion from the other team members more often. Also, it is difficult for them to wait for others to do their part of the task. However, this correlation is low and on the verge of statistical significance; accordingly, individuality orientation in a teamwork can be anticipated in a small percentage of respondents assertiveness. The results suggest that assertiveness can predict how the respondents perceive the team dynamics. Assertive respondents are more likely to recognize and value the atmosphere and communication of teamwork. The orientation towards individuality and independence in problem solving are lower significantly associated with assertiveness.…show more content…

Moreover, the respondents with higher scores on the scale of assertiveness tend to collaborate with other team members sometimes, if necessary, abandon their individual ideas and make compromises that improve team efficiency to carry on its goal. The respondents with lower levels of assertiveness more often express willingness to independently perform the task and accept compromise solutions more difficultly. However, the relationship between the degree of assertiveness and this kind of behaviour is not clearly confirmed in the study (statistical significance is .05). It can therefore be
