Abstract: Two experiments were conducted in which stressor controllability was varied while stressor predictability and other stressor properties were held constant. In each experiment stressor control led to a reduction in anticipatory physiological stress. These findings support the minimax hypothesis but contravene alternative theories that attribute the beneficial effects of stressor control to the predictive information furnished by controlling actions.
