Managers from 24 diverse countries/provinces were compared on their work locus of control, job satisfaction, psychological strain and physical strain. Scales showed good internal consistencies across translations. There were significant country differences on all four variables. Locus of control correlations with the other variables were mostly consistent across countries/provinces.
