    Intrinsic and extrinsic religious orientation as a moderator of key predictors of romantic relationship commitment.Carolyn H. Humala, Sabrina J. Eisenberg & Anthony E. Coy - 2024 - Archive for the Psychology of Religion 46 (1):3-15.
    Religious individuals often assume that their beliefs promote strong romantic relationships. Yet the empirical evidence is mixed. To better understand this association, this study examined religious orientation as a moderator within the investment model of commitment. A community sample of 84 couples completed measures on religious orientation and commitment as part of a larger study on romantic relationships. The findings indicate that although both religious motivations promote commitment, they do so differently. Specifically, intrinsic religious orientation buffered the negative effects of (...)

    How religiosity and spirituality influences the ecologically conscious consumer psychology of Christians, the non-religious, and atheists in the United States.Sidharth Muralidharan, Carrie La Ferle & Osnat Roth-Cohen - 2024 - Archive for the Psychology of Religion 46 (1):71-87.
    Despite global warming and climate change remaining top environmental issues, many people do not prioritize the environment. However, religious and spiritual beliefs can influence pro-environmental behavior. Therefore, we focused on understanding how religiosity and spirituality among Christians, the non-religious, and atheists, influence ecologically conscious consumer behavior (ECCB) through environmental values (i.e. egoistic, altruistic, and biospheric) and issue involvement. Using Qualtrics, we recruited a US sample of Christians ( n = 362), the non-religious ( n = 132), and atheists ( n (...)

    Belief in Jinn Possession Scale: Development and validation.Nida Falak Naz & Naeem Aslam - 2024 - Archive for the Psychology of Religion 46 (1):88-105.
    In spite of scientific developments, paranormal beliefs remain widespread, especially in South Asian societies. Numerous disorders connected to possession and trance have been theorized in recent years. In this study, three community samples were used to develop a comprehensive scale of Belief in Jinn Possession Scale (BJPS) and to examine its consistency and relevance. The BJPS scale was proposed to be multidimensional with four factors displaying satisfactory internal consistency reliability estimated by the exploratory factor analysis (EFA) ( n = 300). (...)

    The Dimensions of Spirituality Inventory.Wesley J. Wildman, David Rohr, Steven J. Sandage & Nicholas C. Donato - 2024 - Archive for the Psychology of Religion 46 (1):35-70.
    The Dimensions of Spirituality Inventory (DSI) is a 50-item quantitative assessment of spirituality. Whereas “spirituality” has seemed to some to be too vague for research purposes, the DSI follows earlier qualitative research in showing that usage of the word points to an intelligible conceptual structure. Instead of defining spirituality and then operationalizing it, as most extant instruments do, the DSI defines and operationalizes 21 relatively uncontroversial elemental components of spirituality, so the overall interpretation of spirituality can only emerge after factor (...)
