Social Psychology

posted by .

Could some one please help me with this assignment. I am really confused about this. Here is what I have to do:

Write 200 to 300 words applying critical thinking to determine whether an internal or external locus of control is more effective in various life situations. The three major elements to critical thinking are logical inquiry, problem solving, and evaluative decision making. Include the following elements:

o Logical inquiry: Find two reliable sources that provide a balanced view of internal versus external locus of control. Reference these sources in your response. Also, complete the Locus of Control Assessment to find out whether you have an internal or external locus of control.

o Problem solving: What are positive and negative outcomes of internal and external locus of control? Provide specific examples.

o Evaluative decision making: Given the pros and cons of the two types of locus of control, is it better to have an internal or external locus of control? Explain your answer. In what situations do you exhibit the less effective locus of control? How might you change your interpretation of events to the effective locus of control in these situations?
