PERCEPTUAL STYLE, LOCUS OF CONTROL, AND PERSONALITY IN URBAN WHITE COLLEGE STUDENTS
Abstract:The relationship between locus of control of reinforcement, perceptual style, and personality variables was investigated using a population of 133 white urban college men and women. No relationship was found between Rod-and-Frame Test scores and three different measures of Internal-External locus of control. No personality variables were found common to both Rod-and-Frame Test scores and the Internal-External locus of control inventories. The personality variables presumably attributed to the field dependent individual were not confirmed. The more statements of an intra-personal nature the locus of control inventory in question contained, the more personality variables attributed to the internally controlled individual were found to be significantly correlated with the Internal-External scores. Results suggest that the Rod-and-Frame Test and Internal-External control inventories are tapping different levels of personality functioning for this age group.
