The Usefulness of Distinguishing between a Defensive and a Nondefensive External Locus of Control.
Lloyd, Camille; Chang, Alice F.
Journal of Research in Personality, v13 n3 p316-25 Sep 1979
It was hypothesized that true externals and those who adopt an external locus of control as a defense differ in the amount of personal responsibility they accept for task outcomes. Defensive externals varied in their causal attributions as a function of task outcome, whereas nondefensive externals did not. (Editor/SJL)
