In this research, it was aimed to examine the effect of insight and cognitive flexibility on psychological hardiness. In the study group, there are a total of 390 participants, 248 women (Mean.age = 25.07, Sd = 5.48) and 142 men (Mean.age = 25.55, Sd = 5.23), aged between 18-44. Insight Scale, Cognitive Flexibility Scale and Psychological Hardiness Scale were used to collect data. Pearson Correlation Analysis and Multiple Linear Regression analysis were used to analyze the data. It was found that there is a positive and statistically significant relationship between Insight Scale scores and the Cognitive Flexibility Scale scores (r =.499, p <.01). It was determined that there is a positive and statistically significant relationship between Psychological Hardiness Scale scores with Insight Scale scores (r =.450, p <.01) and Cognitive Flexibility Scale scores (r =.599, p <.01). Also, it was observed that the Insight Scale scores (? =.201, t = 4.391, p =.000) and Cognitive Flexibility Scale scores (? =.498, t = 10.872, p =.000) significantly predicted the Psychological Hardiness Scale scores. According to the results of the research, insight and cognitive flexibility explain 38% of the total variance of psychological hardiness. The results of the research showed that the cognitive structures in particular and the psychological structures in general have an interactive and dynamic structure, and therefore the obvious importance of understanding each concept in psychological support services offered to people. © 2020 The Author(s).
