In this study, it is aimed to determine the self-control opinions of the faculty members working in the School of Foreign Languages by asking their self-opinion. The study is a qualitative study based on the opinions of 20 faculty members working at Abant İzzet Baysal University School of Foreign Languages in the second semester of 2018-2019 academic year. Data were collected through a semi-structured interview form by face-to-face interview. When instructors were asked “What do you do when you encounter situations or events that are difficult to overcome in your life?”, “I look for a new solution (f = 16)”; “In any situation that interferes with your normal functioning (eg anxiety, pain, etc.), what are your ways of overcoming it?”, “I get professional help (f = 10)”; “What do you do against seductive stimuli (distractions - pleasurable activities) when you are in the process of acquiring a new habit (eg starting sports, learning a new language, starting a diet, etc?”, “It depends on the importance of habit (f = 9)”; “What do you do when you have a stressed and sad mood?”, “Sleep (f = 6)”; “How can a stressful situation affect you during a pleasant activity? Can you overcome stress and fully enjoy your work, or does stress affect your enjoyment?”, “I am negatively affected and cannot focus fully on the activity (f = 10)”; and when instructors were asked to complete a meaningful sentence within the framework of their own behavior, “When I want something so bad…”, “I do my best (f = 13)”; “When I encounter an unexpected situation…”, “I look for solutions (f = 9)”; “When I have a seductive stimulus for me while I'm focused on a target…”, “I'm Not Affected (f=5)” were the most common responses. The findings show that instructors are mainly self-controlled and that a minority of people in the group may exhibit low self-control in various situations.
