The word locus in Latin means “place” or “location,” and so the locus of control simply refers to the degree to which a person feels he has a sense of control over his own life and the events that affect him. Thus, people with an internal locus of control believe that they have the power to control their lives and the things that happen to them. Their drive is internal, or personal; their place of control comes from the inside.
