    The perceived control of the attribution process is deeply rooted in attribution theory; however, the guiding theory of the construct is perceived control. The driving force of PCAP is the perceived control of the attribution process. It is the perceived control that should promote subjective well-being, persistence, and autonomy. Individual differences exist not only in the depth of our attributions but also in the types of attributions we tend to make about both ourselves and others (Plaks, Levy, & Dweck, ). Some people are entity theorists who tend to believe that people’s traits are fundamentally stable and incapable of change.

    Perceived Control and Environmentally Friendly Behavior. According to some models, intentions sometimes can only be expected to find performance on behavior if an individual possess actual perceived control over the behavior, it is more likely for a person to perform the specific behavior when perceptions of perceived control were high [17]. In the present study, Jones' control model of debilitative and facilitative anxiety was examined in a dispositional context as a function of skill level. Elite and nonelite participants from open-skilled sports (n=, UK) completed measures of perceived control, goal attainment expectations and symptoms associated with competitive trait anxiety intensity level and direction.

      Personal control refers to “the perceived ability to significantly alter events” (Burger ).A high personal control corresponds to a belief that one can change the course of events, whereas a low personal control represents the lack of such belief. Abstract. The degree to which perceived controllability alters the way a stressor is experienced varies greatly among individuals. We used functional magnetic resonance imaging to examine the neural activation associated with individual differences in the impact of perceived controllability on self-reported pain perception.
