Resilience and Proactive Coping in Engineering Graduates with Internal and External Locus of Control During Covid-19 Pandemic
The present research aims to study and compare the level of resilience and proactive coping among Engineering graduates of the year 2020 during the COVID-19 Pandemic. The study compares two groups of Engineering graduates, those with an internal locus of control and an external locus of control. It also explores the relationship between resilience and proactive coping in the two groups. The data was collected during the month of November in the post lockdown period. The sample consisted of 60 individuals divided into two groups of internal and external locus of control. The data was then subjected to test of normality and other parametric statistics. Results showed that there was a significant difference in the level of resilience and proactive coping of individuals with internal and external locus of control. The findings also showed that there is a positive relationship between resilience and proactive coping in individuals who have internal and external locus of control respectively. One significant finding of the study was that Engineering graduates who had external locus of control were found to be more resilient than those with internal locus of control.
