I scored 11

Scores range from 0 - 13.
A high score indicates an external locus of control

Locus of Control

The extent to which people believe they have power over events in their lives. A person with an internal locus of control believes that he or she can influence events and their outcomes, while someone with an external locus of control blames outside forces for everything.

I scored 2 as well, twice.

I'm a big believer that everything is in my hands. Doesn't mean I am always successful in achieving what I set.

I got a 4 but it's kind of a dumb test.. both answers can be true at the same time depending on how you interpret them

I'm not arguing, I'm explaining why I'm right.

I'm guessing happiness lies somewhere in the middle.

Too high a score and you're denying your own agency.

Too low and you're getting stressed out from putting too much on your own shoulders and believing you have the power to change everything.
Do I contradict myself? Very well, then I contradict myself. I am large, I contain multitudes.
