Abstract

The present study sought to investigate the relationship between locus of control and stress among school teachers. Teaching job is regarded as one of the most stressful occupation, but so far, no study explored the association between locus of control and stress of school teachers in Jaffna. Although previous research results have indicated that there is an association between personality and behavioral outcomes, there has been little attention paid to some of the personality factors that may impact these relationships. The purpose of this study is to examine the job stress, internal and external locus tendencies and the relationship between the two construct. Subjects were drawn from randomly selected schools from Jaffna Zone. 186teachers participated in this study. Locus of control was measured using Locus of Control Scale and stress level was measured using Perceived Stress Scale. The result indicates that individuals with a higher external locus of control are more likely to have higher levels of job stress.
