Description

What is the relationship between religiosity and perceived stress among college students? Previous research has suggested that religiosity is a buffer against outside stressors. Our study specifically focused on two forms of religiosity internalization: identified regulation and introjected regulation. Seventy-nine undergraduate students, in attendance at Andrews University, self-reported their perceived stress and religiosity levels as participants in a subject pool. Multiple linear regression analysis revealed that identified regulation was a significant predictor of stress perception levels compared to introjected regulation. We conclude that students who have a more internalized religious belief system are more likely to exhibit lower stress levels.
