Of particular interest to the present discussion are those investigations which assessed individual differences in locus of control and the consequences of holding a particular locus. For example, investigators have isolated such correlates of locus of control as ability to acquire relevant information (Seeman, 1963; Seeman & Evans, 1962), conformity (Crowne & Liverant, 1963), risk-taking (Lefcourt, 1965; Liverant & Scodel, 1960), reaction to frustration (Butterfield, 1964), anxiety reduction in stressful situations (Auerbach, Kendall, Cutler, & Levitt, 1976), social dependency in naturally occurring interactions (Rajecki, Ickes, & Tanford, in press), reaction to assertiveness training (Schwartz & Higgins, 1979), and expectancy following success and failure in tasks of chance versus skill (James & Rotter, 1958; Phares, 1957).
