Abstract: Obsessive compulsive symptoms (OC) characterized by recurrent unwanted thoughts, images or impulses (obsessions) that provoke anxiety, as well as attempts to resist or neutralize the obsessional anxiety through avoidance behavior and intentional overt or covert action Although OCD previously was thought to be relatively rare in the general population, more recent epidemiological studies indicate a lifetime prevalence of approximately 2–3%. The main purpose of the present study was to test whether the obsessive compulsive groups are significant association with mal adaptive schema and locus of control in sub scale of internal, powerful others and chance. Examination of the individual betas indicated that, chance and powerful others were significant predictors of OCD arrangement and collecting symptomatology (β= .32, p< .01, .arrangement β=.51,P<.001 collecting). In addition to this, only the interaction between mal adaptive schema and all obsessive compulsive subscale maintained its high significance (β= .71, p< .001). In the OCD group, multiple linear regression analyses revealed highest partial correlations between scores on the repeating dimension and ma adaptive schema (β=.84, P=0.01). other OCD symptom dimensions were significantly related to locus of control specific powerful others and chance dimension P :( β=.48 p=0.001) C :( β=.37 P=0.001). This result demonstrated that powerful others and chance were predictor for obsessive compulsive symptom. Present research demonstrated effect of Locus of Control on OCD and we found Higher locus of control scoring (more towards powerful others and chance) was significantly correlated to higher Y-BOCS total obsessive compulsive symptom and other subscale as well as aggression and repeating. There was no correlation between internal locus of control and OCD score.
