detailed results
strengths & limitations
Locus of control refers to how a person perceives the cause of life events. Someone with an internal locus of control would generally perceive himself or herself as responsible for certain occurrences (his or her actions would have a direct bearing on the result). On the other hand, a person with an external locus of control would most often blame (or thank) fate, destiny, luck, society, or some other force beyond his or her control.

Overall results
External Internal

Mary's overall locus of control appears to be somewhat more internal than external. People with an internal LC feel in control over what happens in their lives, and tend to accept responsibility as well as credit for their actions. They believe in putting in the necessary effort to succeed in life and do not feel that they are prisoners of luck, fate, their genetic make-up, or socioeconomic status. In general, this attitude generates high motivation, effort, perseverance, and a willingness to take risks. It goes without saying that success is more likely with all these qualities present. While it is important to understand and accept one's own limits, it is equally important not to give up without doing one's best. Research shows that with a few exceptions, the internal locus of control is the healthier end of the spectrum.
