Abstract This review aims to create a cross-disciplinary framework for understanding the perception of control. Although, the personality trait locus of control, the most common measure of control perception, has traditionally been regarded as a product of social learning, it may have biological antecedents as well. It is suggested that control perception follows from the brain’s capacity for self regulation, leading to flexible and goal directed behaviours. To this account, a model is presented...

This study tested the hypothesis that individual differences in generalized control perception for 43 undergraduate adults may be reflected in Spontaneous Eye Blink Rates during conversation in an interview. Control perception was assessed by means of Rotter's internal-external Locus of Control questionnaires, while Spontaneous Eye Blink Rates were computed from filmed videos of interviews consisting of a series of questions which could presumably have triggered different mental states. Pearson ...

Abstract Higher-order cognition in humans has not generally been viewed as closely entwined with the brain mechanisms mediating more basic perceptual–motor interactions in 3-D space. However, recent findings suggest that perceptual and oculomotor mechanisms that are biased toward the upper field (which disproportionately represents radially distant space) are activated during complex mental operations, ranging from semantic processing to mental arithmetic and memory search. The particularly clos...

This study presents experimental data that suggest possible hemispheric asymmetries in contingency learning and habituation following irrelevant or warning stimuli during a discrimination reaction time task. A total of 68 college students participated in a letter‐categorisation task (presumably engaging the left hemisphere more than the right hemisphere) and a visuospatial task (presumably engaging the right hemisphere more than the left hemisphere), both of which involved making a decision base...

We propose that executive team power strengthens a cycle of "homosocial reproduction" that is interrupted only when teams face such compelling needs for diversity as poor organizational performance, high corporate diversification, and tough market competition. Hypothesis tests in data from major Dutch newspaper publishers over 25 years did not support many of our benchmark expectations. Apparently, top management teams tend to close ranks when environmental complexity and pressure increase. Expl...

Abstract This study investigates the relationship between dopamine metabolism and a personality trait, the locus of control. For 29 primary breast cancer patients who are otherwise normally functioning, plasma concentrations of homovanillic acid (pHVA) levels and locus of control on the Rotter internal–external scale were determined. The results indicate that pHVA is significantly associated with locus of control, with pHVA levels increasing for more externally oriented individuals. This relatio...

This study examines the effects of positive and negative feedback on performance during choice reaction time tasks to assess whether they differentially affect phasic arousal and tonic activation. Participants (N = 96) received either no feedback or signals of reward, punishment, or both during a semantic and a visuospatial repetitive-choice reaction time task. The number of errors made was analyzed both on a trial-by-trial basis and over a continuous series of 80 trials (assessing phasic and to...

This study presents experimental results indicating that there are sex differences in the susceptibility to a geometric optical illusion. Participants (57 male and 39 female undergraduate students) performed 3 trials on a test involving the Poggendorff illusion. Analysis indicated that the magnitude of the illusion diminished significantly with each trial and that the percent perceived error was significantly larger for women than for men. This finding is consistent with the numerous studies whi...

The aim of this study was to examine the relationship between two psychosocial factors and early relapse in breast cancer patients. Specifically, we investigated how the personality trait locus of control interacts with marital status to predict medical pathology and distress in 49 primary breast cancer patients. Patient data were obtained from clinical files, personal interviews, and a reduced version of Hopkins Symptom Checklist. Based on Rotter's generalized I-E locus of control scale, patien...
