Locus of Control and Moral Judgement: A Cross‐Cultural Study in Israel

Journal of Moral Education 10 (3):186-191 (1981)
Abstract The present study compares Israeli adolescents from Eastern, i.e., African?Asiatic descent and Western, i.e., European?American descent, with respect to locus of control (LOC) and moral judgement. It was assumed that the differential patterns of socialization that characterize the two ethnic groups, would be reflected by the subjects? LOC and moral judgement. It was hypothesized that more internal LOC orientation and more relativistic moral judgement would be associated with Western than with Eastern patterns of socialization. The results confirmed the general hypothesis. Israeli adolescents of Eastern descent were found to be more externally oriented and their moral judgement to be more realistic than adolescents of Western descent. No relationship between LOC and moral judgement within each of the origin groups was found. The results are discussed in terms of socialization patterns and child?rearing practices
