  1. 1 Model with one general latent variable;
  2. 2 Model with latent variables Internality and Externality;
  3. 3 Model with latent variables Internality, Externality powerful Others and Chance;
  4. 4 Model with latent variables Internality, Formal Help, Informal Help and Chance;
  5. 5 Model with perfect fit;
  6. 6 Cross-validation index developed by Cudeck and Browne (1983) [71];
  7. 7 Model 3a corresponded, generally, to Model 3, but did not include item 12;
  8. 8 Model 4a corresponded, generally, to Model 4, but did not include item 12;
