Relationship of Internal-External Control To Defensive Preferences
Phares, E. Jerry; Lamiell, James T.
Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, 42, 6, 872-878, Dec 74
Four tests, ostensibly designed to measure IQ, were described to internally and externally oriented subjects. For two of the tests, the experimenter's descriptions of the tests included "built-in" rationalizations designed to provide the subjects with potential explanations for any test failures. Externals demonstrated greater preference for the rationalized tests than did internals. (Author)
