A sample of 1,168 Roman Catholic parochial secular priests in England and Wales completed the Eysenck Personality Questionnaire. In terms of the two major dimensions of extraversion and neuroticism the Roman Catholic priests display a personality profile more characteristic of women. In other words Roman Catholic priests are more introverted than men in general and more neurotic than men in general. In terms of the third major dimension of psychoticism, the Roman Catholic priests display a clearly masculine profile. Indeed Roman Catholic clergy are more toughminded than men in general.
