Abstract

This article presents a synthesis of research in the last two decadesthat has explored the relationship of gender to locus of control measures. In the main, this research suggests that both males and females are becoming more external. Females, however, tend to be more externalthan males on most locus of control measures. There are also gender differences in perceptions of control across behavioral domains. Factoranalyses of locus of control measures indicate that males and femalesare relatively similar in primary factors but may differ substantially in some secondary factors. Two areas in which males and females appear to differ are perception of control over interpersonal relationships and perception of control over essentially uncontrollable life events. Gender differences also emerge in how locus of control relates to comparison variables. Internality, for example, appears to be more related to achievement for males than females and a better predictor of social adaptation for females than for males.
