A group of 760 Pentecostal ministers were divided into two groups: those who agreed they were 'in daily conflict with demons' and those who did not. These two groups were compared on a series of items designed to map out their psycho-social profiles and on the psychoticism dimension of personality. It was concluded that the two groups of ministers held two distinct worldviews the explanation for which was thought to lie in their personality differences. The demon worldview ministers were more inclined to believe that the church should offer help to disadvantaged groups, but they were more literalist in their interpretation of the bible and more likely to believe Christians are obliged to seek healing by supernatural means.
