MonDie Posted December 3, 2012 Share Posted December 3, 2012 (edited) In Response to TAR: I didn't see your post while I was editing my previous post, but it says that my last edit was made an hour after you made this post. Anyway, after I read your post from November 29th, I edited in a response to it. That response is in my previous post. EDIT: Okay, immortal's post definitely wasn't there when I made this post. Something is causing delayed post appearance. The presentation is 50 minutes long. There should be a time bar below the video screen. You'll spend over an hour watching it if you really want to understand what's going on. In the beginning, he is talking about various ways religiosity was measured when social psychologists were first discovering that religious people actually tend to be more prejudiced. Sometimes it was measured by church attendance. Later, he begins talking about the intrinsic religiosity scale. The idea behind it was that these people are the true believers. Their beliefs don't serve any other end. They are also probably compulsive attendees of church because they are true believers, but it is the personal approach to religion that is measured by the scale, not church attendance. However, Dan Batson has a bone to pick with the guy who made the intrinsic religiosity scale. The guy who invented it thought it measured a better form of religious belief. However, Dan Batson thinks the intrinsic religiosity scale might be a scale of religious fanaticism. Fortunately, I can show you sample questions from an intrinsic religiosity scale. They are from an article iNow showed me in another thread several months ago. http://www2.psych.ub...rvais-493-6.pdf My faith involves all of my life. I try hard to carry my religion over into all my other dealings in life. In my life I feel the presence of the Divine. Nothing is as important to me as serving God as best I know how. My faith sometimes restricts my actions. One should seek God's guidance when making every important decision. My religious beliefs are what really lie behind my whole approach to life. *It doesn’t matter so much what I believe as long as I lead a moral life. *Although I am a religious person, I refuse to let religious considerations influence my everyday affairs. *Although I believe in my religion, I feel there are many more important things in life.
