The research tool was the California Individual and Social Adjustment Questionnaire and meta-cognitive beliefs of Wells and Cartwheel-Hatton. Data were analyzed by inferential and descriptive statistics(Pearson correlation coefficient).Data were analyzed by SPSS.
Results: The results showed that there was a negative correlation between individual adaptability with positive beliefs about worries, uncontrollability and risk, cognitive self-awareness.But with the variable of thought control, the relationship was positive and there was no relation to the cognitive reliability variable.The relationship between social adjustment with irregularity and risk variables, cognitive reliability, positive thoughts control.There was no relationship between social adaptability and positive beliefs about worries. Social adaptability was negatively related to cognitive self-awareness.
Conclusion: Increasing the variable of positive beliefs about worries reduces individual adaptability and undermines social adaptability. Increasing the uncontrollability and risk variable leads to a reduction in individual adaptability and increased social adaptability. Cognitive enhancement of librarians is ineffective in individual adaptation but has a positive impact on social adaptability. Increasing control of thoughts among librarians will increase their individual and social adaptability. Increasing cognitive self-awareness leads to a reduction in the individual and social adaptation of librarians.
