Locus of Control and the Perception of Freedom in an Agent of Reinforcement.
Piechowski, Mary; Millimet, C. Raymond
Journal of Research in Personality, v14 n4 p433-44 Dec 1980
For externals, any variability in the reinforcing behavior of the "teacher" resulted in greater perceived freedom. For internals, perceived freedom was a negative linear function of the amount of reinforcement. Greater freedom was attributed to a person whose behavior was perceived as congruent with the person's inner disposition. (Author)
