Para Religious Beliefs

Women are also higher in adhering to para-religious beliefs, or "the occult," such as astrology, "telepathy," and fortune-telling, as well as readier to believe in various "miracle drugs" (Emmons & Sobal, 1981; Markle, Petersen, & Wagenfeld, 1978; Wuthnow, 1976; Zeidner & Beit-Hallahmi, 1988). In 1999, a survey of 3,569 university students in Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Uruguay, the United States, Austria, Germany, Great Britain, Italy, and Portugal looked at involvement in religious and esoteric beliefs and practices. It was found that females were both more religious and more involved in esoteric beliefs and practices (Hollinger & Smith, 2002).
