As dependent variables, two types of coping behaviors of individual have been used, problem-focused coping strategies and symptom-focused coping strategies. To test the hypotheses, structural equation modeling was employed. The model showed adequate fit to the data. The results of structural equation modeling exhibit that internal locus of control, self-efficacy and autotelic personality were positively related problem-focused coping strategies. And self-efficacy was negatively related to symptom-focused coping strategies. Implications are discussed and future research directions are outlined.
