The Relationship Between Levels of Intelligence and Internal Locus of Control of Adolescents in Saudi Arabia

Auther : Farouk Abdel Fattah

According to locus of control people are:

  1. Internalize who believe that they are responsible for what happens to them.
  2. Externalizes who believe that they are controlled by external factors. Friersin, 1975 and Brown,1980 found positive relationship between intelligence and internal locus of control. Tobin, 1979 and Ross, 1978 found no relationship between the two variables.

Two hypotheses were stated for this study

  1. There is positive relationship between levels of intelligence and internal locus of control.
  2. There is no sex difference in that positive relationship between intelligence and internal locus of control.

Two instruments were used: Locus of control scale for children and the test of Mental Ability 12-14 years.

The sample was 511 students (230 males and 281 females) of grades 9 and 10 .

Results:

  1. The Correlation Coefficients between intelligence scores and internal locus of control scores are positive and significant at .01 and .05 levels.
  2. The differences between the means of locus of control scores for the two groups of high and low intelligence are significant.
  3. The differences between the means of the intelligence scores for the two groups of high and low internal locus of control are significant.

The two hypotheses are true.
