Research was conducted with physical education and sports teachers (N=230) working in Kayseri during the 2011-2012 academic year. “The Curiosity Index (CI-3)” which was developed by Ainley (1987) and adapted into Turkish by Demirel and Coşkun (2009) was used for data collection tools. In data analysis descriptive statistics, frequency (n), percentage (%), mean ( ) and standard deviation (Sd) were utilized. In order to explore the differences, non-parametrical tests Mann-Whitney U and Kruskal Wallis tests were used and SPSS 18.0 statistics package program was used to determine if there was a relationship among the data. According to the findings, women had higher curiosity level than men, singles had higher curiosity than married people and age group ≤ 30 years had higher curiosity than age group ≥ 31 years.
