Adolescents’ action control level versus their self-esteem and locus of controlThe aim of this research was to analyse the relationship between adolescents’ self-knowledge (general self-esteem level, self-esteem coherence, self-esteem certainty) and locus of control, on the one hand, and action control level (decision-related action control level – AOD and action control level during performing an activity – AOP) on the other. 119 eighteen-year-old students of two Warsaw secondary schools participated in the study. The methods used to analyse the hypotheses were: 1) M. Tukałło and R. Wiechnik’s Self-Knowledge Inventory, 2) R. Drwal’s Locus of Control Questionnaire “Delta” and 3) J. Kuhl’s Action Control Scale. SPSS pack (Pearson’s ‘r’ correlation method, regression method, Pearson’s partial correlation method) was used for the purpose of statistical analysis. The results of the research point to a statistically signifi cant correlation between self-esteem and decision-related action control as well as between locus of control and decision-related action control. Moreover, the findings demonstrate that locus of control and general self-esteem are not correlated with action control during performing an activity. However, the study confirmed a significant, but not very strong, correlation between action control during performing an activity and global self-esteem, intellectual self-esteem and self-esteem certainty.
