1) How does a personís level of autonomy affect their sense of freedom?

The greater a personís level of autonomy will be a greater sense of freedom. With autonomy the sense of freedom becomes greater because you increase you sense of responsibility and obligations to their selves and others.


2) 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?

I think that a person who aligns him or herself with the incremental theory will view their sense of freedom as something they can control and change at any given time they will feel like they can change themselves as well as others. However a person who aligns him or herself with the entity theory will view their sense of freedom as something set in stone and unchangeable they will not try to change their sense of freedom rather than to just accept it as it is and other people as they are.


3) How would a person with an internal locus of control view personal freedom as opposed to a person with an external locus of control?

A person with an internal locus of control views personal freedom much differently than a person with external locus of control. I say this because a person with internal locus of control believes that they control their own destiny, and have a greater sense of control over many aspects of their lives. Therefore they would view personal freedom as something they can control. A person with external locus of control believe that their fate is determined by chance or powerful others, Therefore they would view personal freedom as fate or a gift.
