Parental, Sex-Role, and Interpersonal Correlates of Religiousness in Adolescents.
Suziedelis, Antanas; Potvin, Raymond H.
Factorially derived aspects of religiousness, i.e., intrinsic, orthodoxy, practice, and cognitive, were examined in juxtaposition with indices of parental influence, sex-role identity and interpersonal style. The data were analyzed separately for boys (N=297) and girls (N=344) from several Catholic parochial schools. The results indicate that: (1) religiousness is related to sex-role self-definition in boys, but not in girls; (2) conversely, interpersonal dispositions are more predictive of religiousness in girls; and (3) patterns of parental influence, as they relate to religiousness, also differ for the two sexes.
