RESEARCHING THE PSYCHOLOGICAL EXPRESSION OF SPIRITUALITY

Joanna Mateusiak

    The paper seeks to answer the question which psychological factors facilitate the spiritual expression of a person. The relationships between personality traits (including temperament and gender) and spirituality were explored taking into account that psychological functioning of a person is a condition not a cause of his/her spiritual growth. The research was carried out in two groups. The relationships between dimensions of temperament/personality were examined in a group of 187 people (females and males of various age and different level of education). The relationships between the dimensions of gender and spirituality were examined in a group of 162 students. The results suggest that the female female dimension of gender is related to spirituality, whereas such dimensions of temperament and personality as conscientiousness, agreeableness, extraversion and also sensory sensitivity and endurance are important for spiritual expression.
