Volunteers will follow the link in the email address and complete the survey at their convince.
Participants will be asked to complete questions from Rotter’s Locus of Control Scale (Rotter,1966), Sleep quality Assessment (PSQI) (University of Pittsburgh Sleep Medicine Institute, 1988), Driver Anger Scale (DAS) (Deffenbacher, 1994), and Bem Sex-Role Inventory (BSRI) (Bem, 1971). Instructions for all measures will ask the subjects to answer the questions as truthfully as possible. …show more content…
