Locus of Control

Ms. Li scores highly on the Internal Locus of Control scale, and believes that what happens to her is the result of her own actions and attributes. She sees herself as an active agent with the capacity to influence her environment, and is therefore motivated to use all of her abilities to gather and effectively utilize information in her decision making. Individuals such as Ms. Li will also be more persistent in the face of adversity, as they are confident in their ability to control their environment. She is also likely to believe that her own actions and attributes can greatly contribute to successful outcomes, even in stable environments where personal influence is usually limited.

Locus of Control  是一个心理术语,这是在Wikipedia上的解释“locus of control refers to the extent to which individuals believe they can control events affecting them. ”老师举过的例子有如何解释成绩,是因为自己勤奋聪明或者是出题太偏押对了宝。我一直觉得是勤奋聪明等等内控的因素和成绩高低息息相关,可是我也知道世界上大概除了学习这件事以外几乎都还有外因这只同样看不见的手在作用。这是我悲观的源泉之一,总觉得无能为力。

有很多 Locus of Control得分高得人却依旧能表现很乐观,是因为他们刻画维持这样的一个幻象,并且信以为真。得肺癌是因为吸烟;得宫颈癌是性生活不洁;A性人格导致各种心血管疾病;肥胖是因为懒惰以及垃圾食品;被强奸是因为穿着不恰当的衣服走在不恰当的小道;贫穷是因为只生孩子不工作……换句话说,我们只要不抽烟,每天positive thinking, 天天做运动,努力工作就可以避免这一切不幸。

前两天读了法医秦明的《尸语者》,意味深长得不是血淋淋得案例,而是秦明如何一跃成为一名优秀的法医。他在大学一年级寒假就得到了宝贵得实习机会-〉他选为班长尽管有两门功课不及格-〉他的带教老师是全省最顶尖得-〉他独当一面成为新生代法医。答案是他的父亲是警察,他的母亲是医生。我并不否认他的勤奋聪明,但我想那些虽然门门功课都优秀却分配在基层整天写写伤情报告的同行,偶尔面对碎尸案连环凶杀案的手足无措找不到重点,仅仅是因为是书呆子理论不够联系实践么?

周末还看了3集澳洲版的《Bachelor》,24个姑娘追逐一位高富帅。有得姑娘很pushy,会厚着脸皮参与男主和其他竞争者的对话;有得则欲擒故纵始终保持距离,在笑起来红唇如血盆大口的一帮子中显得引人注目;有得笑里藏刀议论某女(28岁卧房粉红,和长毛绒玩偶睡在一起)她只有physical attraction, no deep connection。我觉得自己是在《动物世界》,在里面抽开剥离了任何外部环境,在一个香槟鲜花游泳池的城堡里,每个姑娘都得凭借自己的生理条件(3集里面没什么内在秀,侧重外貌以及small talk的技能)争取配偶权。这部真人秀很受欢迎,有美国英国的版本,好几个年头,想来这也是对美人得一次相对公平竞争机会,不光能搭讪百万富翁而且能踏上演艺圈。(我姐姐的个人观点:即便很漂亮,如果没有背景等外因,也难在娱乐界获得一席之地。)

曾经在报纸上看到的一句话“Life is a sexually transmitted terminal disease. The only way out is to die.” 这个人比我更悲观,为此我欣喜不已。
