Hickson, Joyce; And Others
International Journal of Aging and Human Development, v26 n3 p191-99 1988
Examined Rotter's Internal-External locus of control concept in relation to life satisfaction and death anxiety in aged population (N=122). Found strong gender and locus of control effect for life satisfaction. For death anxiety, found strong gender effect and significant interaction between locus of control and age. Suggests need for life span developmental perspective in locus of control literature. (Author/NB)
