To replicate the 1999 work of Francis and Fearn, 360 religious studies students between the ages of 16 and 18 years completed the abbreviated Revised Eysenck Personality Questionnaire and the Francis Scale of Attitude toward Christianity. Analysis confirmed the results of Francis and Fearn and supported the general finding that scores on Psychoticism (r =-.25), but neither those on Extraversion nor Neuroticism, were significantly associated with rated religiosity.
