Abstract:

81 subjects from Tbilisi (Republic of Georgia; 37 men, 44 women) with an age range from 27 to 35 years were asked to report past and future life events. Taking into account I-E control convictions, the basic hypothesis was that internals and externals would differ in a number of life event variables. Tests were performed in regard to the number of events reported, the time span covered by the reports, and evaluation of the life events. These tests supported the basic hypothesis to a great extent. An explorative data analysis technique was applied to describe individual differences in the usage of different event categories. Most of the results could be interpreted within the existing theoretical frame of reference for I-E control convictions. Results of the explorative part of the study are useful for further hypothesis generation and cross- validation attempts.
