Chapter Summary

This special section of RSSSR is devoted to the issue of psychological type and religion and especially how psychological type can increase our understanding of Christian ministry. As such it illustrates how the social scientific study of religion is of interest not only to academics and theoreticians but also to those who may use research to help them understand their profession or practice. The papers in the section range from reviews of the field to reports of research on specific religious groups. Together they give an insight into how psychological type models of personality have made a significant contribution to the field of religion and psychology. The model of psychological type first suggested by Carl Jung arose from observations of the differences between people but before the days of complex statistical modeling and the quantification of psychological method.
