This article reports on a study of the relationship between narcissism, an important personality trait in individualistic societies, and different varieties of prayer. We distinguish between two kinds of narcissism (overt and covert), and four types of prayer (petitionary, religious, meditative and psychological). The study was carried out by inviting 99 students to complete questionnaires about narcissism and prayer. It revealed a positive correlation between covert narcissism and petitionary and religious prayer. Overt narcissism correlates positively with meditative and psychological prayer. The article discusses in detail the significance of the relationships between narcissism and varieties of prayer.
