Authors: Dr. C. Lalfakzuali

Pages: 83-86


The present study is a study that examines the gender differences and relationship between self-esteem and religiosity in a sample of 60 Mizo young adults studying in Mizoram University, ranging in age from 20 to 25 years. Data was collected through the use of four self-report psychological measures the Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scale (SES) and The Duke University Religion Index (DUREL). Psychometric adequacy and parametric statistic assumptions were checked for the selected population. Pearson correlation, One-Way ANOVA and Regression analysis were applied. The present study contributes to an emerging understanding of the underlying process between self esteem and religiosity. Implications of the present findings for future research are discussed, as well as potential interventions for increasing self esteem and impact of religiosity in young adults.
