1. The Problem The problem of this dissertation is to determine if there is any significant difference between the way students of high and of low religiosity view themselves. "Religiosity" refers to religious behavior in church attendance and contributions, in reading religious literature, and in affirming religious belief. 2. The Method This study tested religiosity by using Strunk's Wesleyan Religiosity Index, which was administered to 186 students, enrolled in a required first year course. Of these, 74 students were classified as "high religiosity," and 50 as "low religiosity." The scores in religiosity were then correlated statistically with the self-reports of these students. To evaluate the self-reports and personality characteristics of the students involved, five other standard tests were administered. [truncated]
