Work Locus of Control : A quantitative study on Birth orders and leaderships effect on Work Locus of Control (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med föreliggande studie var att undersöka hur födelseordning (syskonposition och kön) och ledarskap (ledare och icke-ledare) påverkar arbetsrelaterad upplevd kontroll (Work Locus of Control). Ett urval av 116 individer besvarade en enkät bestående av bakgrundsfrågor och mätskalan arbetsrelaterad upplevd kontroll, WLCS. Resultatet visade två signifikanta huvudeffekter av ledarskap respektive kön på arbetsrelaterad upplevd kontroll. Ledare och kvinnor hade en högre intern arbetsrelaterad upplevd kontroll än icke-ledare och män och bekräftar resultat från tidigare studier, men där resultatet skiljer sig för kvinnor.
