Chapter Summary

A sample of 1,527 churchgoers from a range of different Christian denominations completed the Francis Psychological Type Scales within the context of the Australian National Church Life Survey. Compared with the data held by the Australian Archive of the Psychological Type Research Unit, both male and female churchgoers displayed significantly higher levels of preference for sensing, for feeling, and for judging. The chapter focuses on relatively small samples: It examines at least 1,500 participants. Three aspects of the context of the chapter requires further clarification: the nature of the sample, the measure of psychological type, and the provenance of the wider population data. It establishes the psychological type profile of churchgoers in Australia and to compare the profile of churchgoers with available data on the wider population.
