Abstract:

In this study, locus of control and depression levels of early adolescents (N = 409) with different sociometric status were examined. Sociometric status was determined using the classic sociometric classification procedure as described by Coie, Dodge, and Coppotelli (1982). Students completed the Children's Depression Inventory and the Nowicki-Strickland Locus of Control Scale. Findings showed that locus of control and depression level of students differed according to sociometric status. Subjects classified as popular and controversial, have much more internal control than those of any other sociometric status and the neglected and rejected students tend to display more depressive symptoms than those of any other sociometric status.
