DIFFERENTIAL ASPECTS OF LOCUS OF CONTROL AND ATTITUDES TOWARDS DEATH
Abstract:The relationship between locus of control and death anxiety was investigated in a sample of 99 college students. The results indicate a significant relationship between an external locus of control and concern about death. In addition, there is a specific differential patterning between various dimensions of locus of control and death anxiety items. No sex differences were found for death anxiety, but significant sex differences were found on four of the seven locus of control dimensions.
