How much control do you feel you have in your life?
Rate each statement from 1 to 7, where 1 equals "strongly disagree" and 7 equals "strongly agree", to determine your locus of control.


I have little control over the things that happen to me.
There is really no way I can solve some of the problems I have.
There is little I can do to change many of the important things in my life.
I often feel helpless in dealing with the problems of life.
Sometimes I feel that I'm being pushed around in life.
What happens to me in the future mostly depends on me.
I can do just about anything I really set my mind to do.



Note: the test tallies answers 1 to 5, subtracts answers 6 and 7, and then adds 16 to find your result.
