Do different psychological types look for different things in sermons? A research note

Article English OPEN
Francis, Leslie J. ; Stone, Christopher ; Robbins, Mandy (2015)

A sample of 76 Evangelical Anglican churchgoers completed the Francis Psychological Type Scales and rated the importance that they attribute to a sermon speaking to their imagination. The data demonstrated that sermons speaking to the imagination were rated more highly by intuitive types, feeling types, and perceiving types than by sensing types, thinking types, and judging types. Different psychological types look for different things in sermons.
