Based on this importance, seafarers' perceptions were measured, and it was aimed to develop a valid and reliable favoritism scale. The scale questions, which were prepared on the basis of semi-structured interviews and favoritism studies, were applied with 252 different seafarers. As a result of the factor analyses conducted in SPSS 23, a 22-item favoritism scale consisting of three factors related to demographic and personal characteristics, social rights and opportunities and operational processes was developed. The reliability and validity studies of the scale were conducted, and it was observed that the scale has high reliability. Amos 21 programında doğrulama çalışması yapılmıştır.
