The relationship between locus of control of reinforcement, perceptual style, and personality variables was investigated using a population of 133 white urban college men and women. No relationship was found between Rod-and-Frame Test scores and three different measures of internal-external locus of control. No personality variables were found common to both Rod-and-Frame Test scores and the internal-external locus of control inventories. The personality variables presumably attributed to the field dependent individual were not confirmed. The more statements of an intrapersonal nature the locus of control inventory in question contained, the more personality variables attributed to the internally controlled individual were found to be significantly correlated with the internal-external scores. Results suggest that the Rod-and-Frame Test and internal-external control inventories are tapping different levels of personality functioning for this age group.
