Thus, the authors suggested that internals are more likely than externals to believe that they have the capacity to reduce risks to their health. Alternatively, it is possible that internals are more likely to engage in health protective behaviours than externals who may believe that chance and fate play an important determining role in their life (Hoorens and Buunk 1993).
