The relationship study of the Personality about Locus of Control, coping style and work engagement of the headmasters in primary and middle schools is the basis of further promoting the work engagement of the primary and middle schools headmasters. Method: Do questionnaire surveys on 220 primary and middle schools headmasters by using the Personality about Locus of Control form, questionnaire on coping style and work engagement form. Result: There are distinct differences on locus of control personality between Han and Tibet headmasters; there are distinct differences on the coping styles of the primary and middle schools headmasters in different nationalities and different ages; the two dimensions of the locus of control and coping style and every dimension of the work engagement and the total scores are distinctively related to each other (P <.05); through the analysis of the multiple stepwise regressions, we can find that the predictive power of two factors namely the coping style and the locus of control on the work engagement is up to 16.4%. If the primary and middle schools headmasters can adopt the active pattern of coping style and internal control personality while facing difficulties and problems in work contribute more to work engagement.
