About Self-Mastery Scale

Self-mastery was assessed by using Pearlin and Schooler’s (1978) Self-Mastery Scale (SMS). This seven-item instrument assesses the extent to which a person generally feels as though he or she manifests personal mastery over life outcomes (e.g., “What happens to me in the future mostly depends on me,” and “Sometimes I feel that I am being pushed around in life”).
Its basic psychometric properties are well established (Pearlin & Schooler, 1978), and it has been used successfully in the past with several different community-based populations (e.g., Pearlin & Schooler, 1978). It was also the scale that Marshall and Lang (1990) used in their study exploring the predictive power of optimism and self-mastery with respect to depression. Cronbach’s alpha for the SMS in the present sample was .75.
