Abstract [sv]

Tidigare forskning har påvisat samband mellan värderingar och religiositet ur aspekten benägenhet till att tro. Syftet med föreliggande studie är att bidra till forskningen inom moralvitalism vilket beskrivs vara ett förhållningssätt där tro på goda och onda krafter ingår.

Deltagarna i studien var 122 individer, åldersspannet var 18–68 varav 84 kvinnor, 37 män och en vilken identifierade sig som annat. De fyllde i frågeformulären Portrait Value Questionnaire för att mäta värderingar och Moral Vitalism Scale för mätningen av moralvitalism. Data analyserades med hjälp av Pearsons korrelation (r), multipel linjär regressionsanalys och oberoende t-test.. Studien visar ett positivt samband mellan moralvitalism och värderingen trygghet. Samt ett negativt samband visas mellan moralvitalism och värderingen prestation.

Resultatet indikerar att individer vilka prioriterar egen prestation tenderar att ha lägre grad av moralvitalism tillskillnad från individer som generellt värnar om stabilitet, vilka tenderar att ha högre grad av moralvitalism. Inga skillnader påvisades gällande hur en persons individuella värderingar påverkar graden av moralvitalism. Inga skillnader mellan köns grad av moralvitalism påvisades i studien.

Abstract [en]

Previous research has demonstrated correlations between values and religiosity in the aspect of propensity to believe. The purpose of this study is to contribute to the research in moral vitalism, which includes an approach to good and evil forces.

The participants in the study were 122 individuals; the age range was 18 – 68 of which 84 women, 37 men, and one who identified themselves as other. They filled in the Portrait Value Questionnaire to measure values and the newly developed questionnaire Moral Vitalism Scale for the measurement of moral vitalism. Data was analyzed using Pearson's correlation (r), multiple linear regression, and independent t-test. The study shows a positive correlation between moral vitalism and the value safety. A negative correlation is shown between moral vitalism and the value achievement.

The result indicates that individuals who value achievement have lower propensity to believe in moral vitalism, unlike individuals who generally cherish stability, which show higher propensity to believe in moral vitalism. No differences were found in how a person's individual values affect the degree of moral vitalism. No gender differences in moral vitalism were detected in the study.
