Time Prospective of Senior High School Students with Different Levels of Subjective Control

Abstract: 

The paper presents the results of theoretical and empirical research of time perspective among senior high school students depending on the subjective control localization. The study was conducted on the samples of senior high school students from general schools of the city of Saratov with «extreme» level of subjective control (n=70). Following psychodiagnostic methods were used: «Levels of subjective control» (by J. Rotter, modified by E. F. Bazhin, E. A. Golynkina, L. M. Etkind); «Psychological time of an individual» (by A. Kronik, E. Golovakha); method of motivational induction (form B) (by J. Nutten). The tendency for differentiation of qualitative and quantitative characteristics of time perspective among the senior high school students with different levels of subjective control was discovered. This tendency reveals in reduction of eventivity in the sample of high school students with external localization of subjective control. The variability of locus of control orientation in different fields of life of high school students depending on the extent of subjective control level was revealed. Senior high school students with low level of subjective control demonstrate externality in the field of failures, as well as in the field of educational activities; in the field of failures and interpersonal relationships, they mostly demonstrate responsibilities (internality). The applied aspect of the research can be implemented in development of psycho-pedagogical support programmes for a person’s development in the course of educational process.
