Satisfaction with One’s Religion

Part of the Recent Research in Psychology book series (PSYCHOLOGY)


In this chapter MDT is used to explain satisfaction with one’s religion. In the next section (2.2), I review mean satisfaction scores for the world balanced sample, relatively developed and less developed countries, 39 countries, males and females. In Sections 2.3 and 2.4 satisfaction with one’s religion is explained by MDT, respectively, for the world balanced sample taken as a whole, and for males and females taken separately. Section 2.5 summarizes results of using MDT to explain religious satisfaction in 34 countries, including relatively developed and less developed countries, males and females. The domain of religious satisfaction was one of three domains (along with living partner and paid employment) where substantial numbers of students had no response. In the final section (2.6), MDT’s prediction success ratios are reviewed for all the explanations offered in Section 2.5.
