The present research was designed to explore on the one hand the relationship between the locus of control and personal behavior, and on the other part the association between resilience and self-efficacy. Four instruments were used: Rotter's Locus of Control Scale, Personal Behavior Inventory, the Resilience Scale, and the Self-Efficacy Scale. The study was attended by 41 subjects aged between 22 and 58 years (M=28.6, SD=3.44).

The general conclusion that comes out of the study is that there is a relationship between the locus of control and resilience.
