Step 1: Are you in control? Take a survey to find out

Locus of control is Julian Rotter's concept (1950s) that is the generalizable belief in controllability over novel outcomes in one's life that is learned through interaction with one's physical and social environment.

A person with an internal locus of control perceives that they are more in control over what happens to them and believes they can control the outcomes of situations in their lives.

A person with an outward or external locus of control perceives that external factors, like the powerful people in their lives, luck, or random chance control the outcomes of situations they encounter in their lives (Rotter, 1966, 1975, 1990).
