dc.description.abstractPrevious literature has shown a significant relationship between Religiosity, Spirituality and Prosocial Behaviour. However, little research has been conducted with Honesty. In the present investigation, the aim was to assess this relationship between Religiosity, Spirituality, Prosocial Behaviour and Honesty. Differences in gender and age were also noted. One hundred and one DBS psychology students participated and completed a questionnaire booklet assessing the variables. Results revealed a strong significant negative association between Religiosity and Spirituality, indicating a relationship whereby participants are low in Religiosity but high in Spirituality scores. There was no significant relationship observed between Religiosity, Spirituality and Prosocial Behaviour or Religiosity, Spirituality and Honesty. Significant gender differences were found in Religiosity scores and differences in age were observed in Honesty scores. Limitations, future research and conclusions will be discussed.
