Abstract:

Using Rotters 1-E Scale as a measure of the extent to which an individual feels that rewards are either contingent upon his own behavior or are controlled by forces outside of himself, a determination was made of the extent to which persons who were classified as internals or Externals would be influenced by arguments emanating from sources either high or low in credibility. A 2 x 2 x 5 analysis of varriance was performed on the data using attitude toward the extension of maritime boundaries as the major dependent variable. In the between-countries analysis, two main effects--those due to credibility and nationality--were significant. Author
