What is the External Locus of Control?
Everything that happens is outside of your control e.g. it's all down to fate. You constantly do what other people tell you to do
What is the Internal Locus of Control?
Everything that happens is in your control e.g. down to your hard work. You are much more able to resist conforming or oberying
Williams and Warshal Asch replication
30 uni students. Tested them afterwards on their personality (locus of control/assertiveness). Found that there was no relation with locus of control and conformity
Strengths
Asch- highly controlled experiment
Asch- results have been replicated very well
Weaknesses
No-one really cares about the study as it's not very ecologically valid
