As individuals, people have the ability to make their
own choices and decide for themselves. Many things can influence their ability to choose
freely. Choice, change, and control are three factors that influence the degree to which
people choose. How does a person’s level of autonomy affect their sense of freedom?
How would a person, who aligns him or herself with the incremental theory, view his or
her sense of freedom differently from a person who aligns him or herself with the entity
theory? How would a person with an internal locus of control view personal freedom as
opposed to a person with an external locus of control?
