Answer Key

If your score is between 20 and 30, then you believe that most things in your like are due to chance.

A score between 31 and 60 demonstrates a belief that most things in your life are determined by chance, however some outcomes are brought about through conscious decision making.

If you tallied up a score ranging between 61 and 90, you believe that most things in life occur as a result of our decisions and actions, with the exception of a few events that would occur no matter what.

If your total number of points exceeds 90, you believe that you are the sole person in command over daily events. You take responsibility for your life and you work directly in order to create the outcomes that you desire.
