In psychology, one’s reactions to everyday events can be seen to be stemming from two kinds of attitudes- internal locus of control and external locus of control. Internal locus of control refers to the belief that one is responsible for and capable of controlling things happening to oneself. The external locus of control is the belief that events in the environment are controlled by external forces not under one’s control. Research suggests that mental health and well-being is strongly correlated with internal locus of control.
