A person center orientation is the responsibility of the person by understanding their own motivation, worth, emotions, and intentions; accepts success or failure due to one’s skills or lack of and has a strong relationship between aptitude, attempts
I’ve noticed a difference between me and my friend Iago, during that one class a few weeks ago where we talked about the locus of control me and Iago compared our scores. I was rather surprised to find us being almost at complete opposite ends! I personally appear to have an external locus of control meaning I think external forces are to blame.

I think that most people do not have an internal locus of control in all situations. For example, in a natural disaster or personal tragedy, you cannot control the events happening around you. The only thing you can control is your reaction to these events. I myself am a bit of a control freak. I like to be in control of my life and the situations or experiences I may be involved in.

Internal attribution is behavioral change that is instigated internally by the individual, such as a conscious decision to modify behavior. External attribution is change that is caused by outside factors such as medication or disease (Haynes & Ayliffe, 1991). An excellent example of these concepts is an alcoholic who is told
Jean Twenge and San Diego State University analyzed the questionnaires made by Julian Rotter in the late 1950s. This set of questions was to figure out how much control the student had based on the Internal-External Locus of Control Scale. The “internal locus of control” was the idea that a person is responsible for their own success, as “external locus of control” is the belief that an external force or good fortune determines a person’s future. For example, a question might be “(a) Whatever
