The Locus of Control Test

What is Locus of Control (LOC)?

At Lee Psychology, we believe in empowering individuals to understand themselves better.

One key concept in this journey is the Locus of Control.

LOC refers to the extent to which people believe they have control over the events that happen in their lives.

By exploring your Locus of Control, our psychological tests aim to shed light on your perception of control and empower you to make positive changes.

Understanding the way you understand causality can be a catalyst for personal growth, helping you unlock your fullest potential.

How to Take the LOC Test

This test is designed to measure your beliefs about the degree of control you have over the trajectory of your life-path.

It is important to be aware that your responses to the test are subjective in nature and so the outcome is the result of subjectivity.

What this means is that this, and all other self-assessment tests, do NOT measure internal biology in the same way that a blood test does.

A blood test allows an objective evaulation to be made, whereas these tests produce a subjective result.

In other words, the results depend on your responses NOT on any biological pathology inside you.
