Self-Perception and Locus of Control in Visually Impaired College Students with Different Types of Vision Loss
Abstract: This study used the Twenty Statements Test (TST), a locus of control test, and open-ended questions to elicit responses from 16 college students who were blind or had low vision. A generally positive view of self emerged, but negative TST responses focusing on disability also occurred and sometimes were associated with deteriorating vision loss and recency of onset. Locus-of-control responses were highly external across the group.
