Anorexics, what's your locus of control score?

Some questions are a bit shitty tbh and not direct opposites

I got a 4. I assume a low locus of control score is "needed" in anorexia? The particular ascetic attitude is there and then the attitude towards success is conducive to weight loss I think.

I agree with some ppl above, the questions were not mutually exclusive and I was very torn on a few cos I agreed with the first half of the statement but not the second. Like I believe getting a job relies on your skills but also heavily on who you know, not luck.

Yikes. Sorry but this test is terrible. I hope no one is publishing anything anymore using this or using old data from this to base anything else off of.

10. External locus of control apparently. To be fair though some of the questions were dumb. I can agree with both answers because it depends on the situation

I got an 8, but as a psychology student myself I want to know the internal validity and reliability of this test, and how different situations affect a person's perception of their locus of control, especially one's political beliefs.
When answering this, because of my view of the world, I feel like upward mobility is impossible for many people (it's not as easy as "picking yourself up by your bootstraps" e.g.) because of the system we live in run by crusty rich old white men.
However, for MYSELF, I tend to blame everything bad that happens in my life (even things that are logically out of my control) on myself. So in one sense I have an external locus of control when thinking about others, but my own locus of control is internal.
I don't think this test is that good at really determining individual locus of control because of the way the questions are worded. It it had been more centered to the individual instead of generalized I think maybe it would be better. I
