Abstract

Objective: The term agency has been defined as a sense of responsibility for one's life course, the belief that one is in control of one's decisions about life and is responsible for their outcomes and the confidence that one will be able to overcome obstacles that impede one's progress along one's chosen life course. The "Multi-Measure Agentic Personality Scale (MAPS)" was designed to measure agentic personality. The present study aimed to assess the applicability of the MAPS for Turkish youngsters.
