Geist, Charles R.; Borecki, Susan
Journal of Clinical Psychology, v38 n3 p611-13 Jul 1982
Proposed the degree of social discomfort to be indicative of an individual's perceived locus of control and level of self-esteem. Students completed questionnaires for Social Avoidance and Distress (SAD). Found high SAD subjects had significantly greater external locus of control and lower self-esteem than moderate or low SAD subjects. (Author)
