Introduction:
Religious fundamentalism is a complex religious phenomenon that involves cultural and social domains. Like values, it would potentially provide a
description of how human beings should be. Nevertheless, extensive research has focused on the association between traits and fundamentalism,
while the link with values has so far been neglected.
Methods:
We examined how traits and values might predict religious fundamentalism in a sample of 250 Italian Catholics (57.5% females).
Results:
Results partially confirmed the significant positive correlation between neuroticism and consciousness traits and religious fundamentalism, and
highlighted the strong positive association with openness to change/conservative dimension value. In addition, when the overlap between traits and
values was controlled for, hierarchical regression showed that values predicted fundamentalism better than traits.
Conclusion:
These findings could support the hypothesis that religious fundamentalism can be conceptualized as a motivational-goal attitude trait more than an
enduring disposition.
