Seventy individuals (35 men, 35 women) participated in a study of the relationships among repression-sensitization and Levenson’s 3 dimensions of perceived contingency (internal, powerful others, and chance). Results indicate moderate associations between sensitization and the 2 external orientations, but for men only. Male sensitizers tend to believe in chance control and control by powerful others. The relationship between sensitization and belief in powerful others appears to depend on the presence of a belief in chance control.
