It is observed that there is a tremendous increase in brain drain in India. It is clearly not just a matter of increasing their income which in any event would be difficult or impossible to do on a large scale. So a present study aims to investigate the personality factor (Locus of Control) in making decision for migration. A sample of 50 male Indians intending to migrate to USA was compared on Locus of control with a matched sample of 50 Indians who planned to remain in India. The data were collected by Locus of Control scale by Rotter et al. (1976). A mail questionaire procedure was used. Mean, SD and Anova indicated that there is a significant difference between Locus of Control of emigrants and non emigrants. The findings indicate that Locus of control has influential role in decision making for migration.

Abstract


It is observed that there is a tremendous increase in brain drain in India. It is clearly not just a matter of increasing their income which in any event would be difficult or impossible to do on a large scale. So a present study aims to investigate the personality factor (Locus of Control) in making decision for migration. A sample of 50 male Indians intending to migrate to USA was compared on Locus of control with a matched sample of 50 Indians who planned to remain in India. The data were collected by Locus of Control scale by Rotter et al. (1976). A mail questionaire procedure was used. Mean, SD and Anova indicated that there is a significant difference between Locus of Control of emigrants and non emigrants. The findings indicate that Locus of control has influential role in decision making for migration.
