Internal-External Control and Social-Political Activism: A Test of the Dimensionality of Rotter's Internal-External Scale
Abramowitz, Stephen I.
Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, 40, 2, 196-201, Apr 73
Reexamines the issue of the usefulness of the internal-external concept in understanding commitment to social-political action and evaluates the empirical intactness of Rotter's Internal-External (I-E) scale. The main findigns were that: (a) the two item clusters from the I-E scale were uncorrelated; and (b) political commitment was predicted by scores on the political I-E items, but not by scores on the nonpolitical items or on all the items.
