Most Fastlaners have an INTERNAL Locus of Control.

Locus of control refers to how a person perceives the cause of life events. Someone with an internal locus of control would generally perceive him or herself as responsible for certain occurrences (his or her actions would have a direct bearing on the result). On the other hand, a person with an external locus of control would most often blame (or thank) fate, destiny, luck, society or some other force beyond his or her control.

Wonder what believing in ghosts or not has to do with anything? ^_^

I would have also liked the questions a bit more specified, but that's just me :)

I am worried that I had recived such a low score:

Internal Locus |||||||||||||| 59%
External Locus |||||||||||| 41%
But then I thought "Hell, tests don't determine what I can and cannot do. I determine that."

"Fate" has never made sense to me, but I do flip coins from time to time when it's a small decision that doesn't necessarily affect the rest of my life, i.e. tacos or pasta for dinner, just for fun.
