The Relationship Between of Locus of Internal Control and Problem Focused Coping in Facing the Education Duties on the Student of Tama Jagakarsa Faculty of Psycology University
Abstract: College assignments will always be accepted by students as long as they are still carrying out education. Aside from being a compulsory requirement to fulfill grades, college assignments can also serve as a means for students to further improve their ability or master lecture material. However, sometimes the task will be a stressor for students because in one week students have to complete several college assignments at once, and also students face a fairly heavy task in its completion which makes it difficult for students to do it. These conditions will have the potential for stress on students, therefore the right coping strategies are needed to avoid stress. Some research on coping stress states that problem-focused coping is a form of good coping strategy in dealing with stressors so that a person does not continue to experience stress. Associated with one tendency that emerges a person in carrying out coping strategies, one psychological construct that relates to this tendency, the psychological construct is locus of control. In general, locus of control is divided into two dimensions, namely internal and external, but someone with an internal locus of control will tend to experience less anxiety. The explanation is a reference in this study. Applying quantitative research methods and using purposive sampling techniques, 100 students of the psychology faculty at Tama Jagakarsa University.
