Asian immigrants and locus of control Lee, Elizabeth Eusee


New Asian immigrants were tested on Levenson's internal control, control by powerful others and control by chance (IPC) scale. As predicted, there was no statistically significant difference in the mean scores of the subtest on the internal factor when New Asian immigrants were compared with New European immigrants, Old Asian immigrants and Caucasian faculty and staff members. Significant differences were found in the mean scores on the subtests on the powerful others and chance factors. New Asian immigrants were also tested on an Attribution scale. A high positive correlation was found between the scores measuring the internal factor of both Levenson's IPC scale and the Attribution scale.
