In order to study of the relationship between locus of control (internal- external) and the feeling of the loneliness between athletic and non athletic girls, 60 athletic student participants in athletic teams of Karaj Azad University and 60 non athletic students who were 19-26 years old were considered as the subjects. Variables of this research included a feeling of loneliness, external locus of control (tendency to chance) and external locus of control (tendency to powerful people) into two groups. A feeling of the loneliness was measured by the UCLA questionnaire and locus of control was measured by the Lonsone questionnaire (I, P, C). Regarding to the meaningful relation between a feeling of loneliness and external locus of control (tendency to chance) in non athletes and meaningful difference in external locus of control (tendency to chance) between two groups it can be concluded that non athletes with external locus of control by having this idea that they have a less control on their life views, they feel loneliness more than others. The meaningful difference between a feeling loneliness in both groups confirmed the useful social and mental effect of sport activities. Also the existence of the meaningful difference between internal locus of control in two groups show that athletes have more control on their life and know themselves as responsive for their successes and defeats.
