Shavit, Hana; Rabinowitz, Aaron
Journal of Personality Assessment, 42, 3, 265-71, Jun 78
Reactions to ego related performance feedback of 117 internal and external locus of control eighth-grade children were investigated. Both internals and externals were equally pleased by success feedback and displeased by failure, and their competence judgment was influenced by the feedback received. However, internals exhibited more effective coping with failure than did externals. (Author/CP)
