Conformers: lower self esteem / less intelligent / higher need for social approval Non-conformers: higher self esteem / self confident with leadership abilities

Sense of control people have over successes, failures and life events - measured on a scale

Believe they can influence events in their life

Believe outside factors (e.g. luck, fate 'stars') influence what happens in their lives

Avtgis found those who scored higher on exteral locus of control more likely to confrom - average correlation between LOC and conformity was 0.37
