    What is your locus of control?

    I have far more of an "external" locus than an internal.
    I assume that perceiving types are more likely to be external, especially combined with intuition.
    Thoughts?

    Very interesting question. I'd like to see a poll.

    I tend to believe that you can achieve whatever you like if you apply yourself. I always think that you need to make opportunities for yourself, you can't sit around waiting for them. But then, I've never thought of myself as a typical "P", so...

    I was going to start a poll but I think my post count is too low.

    Mine is internal.

    You can't control everything, but you surely can work on everything you do have control over.

    Internal. Rarely have I thought that my actions were based on luck, perhaps on circumstance, but most of it comes from blatant decision making.

    I see why you'd say this. I think though that it might be more a matter of Fe vs Fi. As an inferior Fe user, I feel that my locus of control is more external, but also rather internal. Hmm... It is hard to say, really. I guess my locus of control is more internal! But... also the things that inhibit me in my own mind are in response to the possible external consequences so... external?
    Eh, I am not sure right now. I have slept four hours in the past two days.

    Internal. I pride myself on owning my part in making my life happen, rather than letting life happen to me. Now, I'll admit that my undoing is often that I'm not making much happen outwardly, and it takes some external impetus to get me in gear to get shit done, I'm not what could classically be considered "self-motivated" in terms of getting outwardly productive things done. But I own my role in that too. Lack of action is action in its self.
    Lady O.W. Bro and Deanna thanked this post.
