Validation d’une échelle courte et multidimensionnelle de locus de contrôle spécifique au travail (MLCST).

Abstract : Generally, the work locus of control is conceptualised as a unidimensional construct (Rotter, 1966) that enables a distinction between individuals with an internal or an external locus of control. However, it was suggested that a multidimensional structure with three distinct factors that takes into account the influence of powerful significant others would be more accurate (Levenson, 1972). Furthermore, Paquet, Berjot, and Gillet (2009) recently proposed a distinction between two types of significant others and validated a four-factor locus of control scale applied to the sport context. Consequently, the aim of the present research was to validate a short four-factor locus of control scale specific to the work context. This scale considers two types of significant others known to be influential in the work context: the superior and colleagues. Over 200 participants from French health care institutions were recruited in order to test the proposed factorial structure of the scale as well as the discriminant and convergent validity of the proposed constructs. Furthermore, the four-factor model was tested in comparison with existing locus of control models. Results supported the proposed four-factor structure of the scale and the discriminant and convergent validity of the constructs. Implications of the present research for future studies in the work context are discussed. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2014 APA, all rights reserved).
