Abstract

Locus of control signifies an individual’s competence or ability to control his/her life situations. It may be either internally or externally. When an individual finds himself able to control his life situations himself/herself he/she is said to possess a high level of internal locus of control while on the other side if it is believed that most of the situations of his/her life are beyond his/her control and are a matter of outsider’s control or decided by fate then in such situations it can be assumed to have had a higher external locus of control. Thus, locus of control has a great bearing on one’s ability to adjust efficiently in his/her environment. Locus of control within the work specially (that is, belief that one has control at work) has likewise been connected to worker successfulness (Spector & et al., 2002). Present paper is an attempt to reveal the relationship between locus of control and work related factors of stress among Teacher Educators. The findings reveal a significant positive relationship between locus of control of teacher educators and working situations perceived as stressful by them.
