The effect of religiosity on gratitude and aggression among male and female undergraduate students
The research study sought to examine whether or not the level of religiosity impacted the level of gratitude and aggression amongst a sample of (N=100) undergraduate students. The research also aimed at comparing the gender differences for the same. The religiosity scale, gratitude questionnaire and aggression scale were used as tools for conducting the research. The analysis of the t-test results indicated that there was no significant difference between the three variables although there was a noticeable mean difference between the religiosity and aggression levels in the male and female undergraduates where the male undergraduates exhibited higher religiosity and lower aggression levels as compared to the female undergraduates, however, there was no considerable mean difference between the gratitude levels. The analysis of correlation matrices exhibited a positive relationship between the religiosity and gratitude levels of the undergraduates and posed no significant correlation between the religiosity and aggression levels. The linear regression analysis exhibited that religiosity predicted 10% of the variance in the gratitude levels of the college-going students; however, it did not predict the aggression levels for the same.
