The short form Revised Eysenck Personality Questionnaire was completed by 112 clergy attending two residential clergy schools. Contrary to the usual sex differences in personality profile found in general population samples, the female clergy recorded higher extra version and higher psychoticism scores than the male clergy, but did not record higher neuroticism scores than the male clergy. The practical implications of these reversals in the expected sex differences in personality profiles are discussed in relationship to the assessment of the performance of the current generation of female clergy, to the tensions which may exist in the present working relationships between male and female clergy, and to the changes which may occur as women become more accepted and established in the clerical profession.
