The Relation Between Psychological Stress and Locus of Control Among University Students
The aim of this study is to investigate the correlation between psychological stress and locus of control among students at A University, while taking various factors into account. To achieve this objective, two scales were utilized: the psychological stress scale, previously used in Derany’s (2003) research, and the Locus of Control scale, developed by Rotter and translated to Arabic and coded by Barhoom (1999). The study sample included 353 randomly selected students, and the data was analyzed using the distributive method of analysis. The findings indicated that the level of psychological stress among the students was moderate, with an average of 2.34. The mental area had the highest stress level, with a mean of 2.70, followed by the psychological area, with a mean of 2.32 and the physiological area, with a mean of 1.99. The majority of students exhibited an internal locus of control (59 percent), and there was a statistically significant difference between psychological stress and locus of control.
