EFFECTS OF CONGRUENCE-INCONGRUENCE BETWEEN LOCUS OF CONTROL AND FIELD DEPENDENCE ON INTERPERSONAL BEHAVIOR
Abstract:Lefcourt and Telegdi's concepts of congruence and incongruence between perceptual skills and expectancies were examined with respect to interpersonal behavior. Four groups of subjects were formed using a portable rod-and-frame device and Rotter's locus of control scale. As predicted the two congruent groups used significantly less interpersonal distance with each of four different social stimuli as measured by Duke and Nowicki's comfortable interpersonal distance scale. There was no difference between congruent and incongruent groups on a self-report measure of interpersonal needs.
