A. Lakshmi Prakash  | Prof. E. Manjuvani
Abstract: The present study is an attempt to study the locus of control of adolescents living in a displaced village and compare with the locus of control of adolescents living in a nondisplaced village. Two hundred and forty-two children in the age group of 13 to 16 years age group studying 8th, 9th and 10th standards constituted the sample. Among the total sample 113 adolescents were from displaced village and 129 adolescents were from nondisplaced village. Levenson’s scale for locus of control is used for data collection. It measures three independent areas of locus of control - individual, chance and powerful others. A comparison of mean scores of different areas of locus of control of adolescents of displaced and nondisplaced villages indicated that there is a significant difference in all the 3 areas of locus of control – powerful others, chance control and internal control. Adolescents of displaced village scored significantly higher on powerful others and chance control when compared to their counterparts in a nondisplaced village. Whereas adolescents of displaced village scored significantly lower on individual control when compared to adolescents of nondisplaced village. There is no significant difference found between the locus of control of boys and girls both in displaced and nondisplaced villages.
