What are the future research issues in perceived control?

What is there to look forward to in the research on perceived control? For developmentalists, two frontiers for research on control seem particularly promising. They focus on mechanisms and integration. Mechanisms reflect the “microscope” of control; on this frontier will be the discovery of explanations, the analysis of the pathways of causal influence that underlie the robust correlations and successful manipulations of control research. In contrast, integration is the “telescope” of work on perceived control; on this frontier will be the search for theories and constructs that define the limits of perceived control. This work will include the synthesis of complementary and synergistic sources of motivation.
