Abstract

The JEPQ-S, short form of the JEPQ, was completed by 421 fourth year junior pupils together with the Francis scale of attitude towards Christianity. The negative correlation with psychoticism, the positive correlation with the lie scale and the lack of significant correlation with neuroticism are consistent with the pattern of relationships established between personality and religion among older age groups. The absence of the expected significant negative correlation between religiosity and JEPQ-type extraversion is interpreted in terms of the social learning dimension of the Eysenckian theory of conditionability into tender-minded social attitudes. © 1989.
