LIMA, Manuela Polidoro et al. Locus of control, personality, self-efficacy and emotional aspects of pilot students. Rev. bras. orientac. prof [online]. 2018, vol.19, n.2, pp. 157-167. ISSN 1984-7270.

This study was conducted to verify the relationship between locus of control (LOC), personality characteristics, self-efficacy, and depression, anxiety, and stress symptoms in adults enrolled in an Aeronautical Science graduation course. One hundred and nine participants were assessed using the following: Big Five Inventory (IGFP-5); Depression, Anxiety and Stress Scale - DASS-21; General Perceived Self-Efficacy Scale (GPSS); and Aviation Safety Locus of Control Scale. Results indicated that: Conscientiousness is correlated to self-efficacy and emotional aspects; Openness and Extraversion are correlated to self-efficacy; and Neuroticism is correlated to self-efficacy and emotional aspects. These results suggest the relevance of self-efficacy in aeronautical students and professionals, since such construct is related to both mental health and rick behavior.

Keywords : Self-efficacy; locus of control; anxiety; depression; stress.
