Past and current research on the relationship between religion and crime yield inconclusive results; some find there is a correlation, while others find none. Two possible interpretations for variations in this data lie in personality differences between participants and lack of a diverse sample in the studies. This study hypothesized that as participants are more religious, they will be more likely to be high self-monitors and self indulgent people, while their reported openness to criminal behavior will be lower. The current study used Amazon Mechanical Services as well as Union College participants to record self report measures online. This study found a significant relationship between self-indulgence, religiosity, and openness to criminal behavior such that self-indulgence predicted the relationship between religiosity and openness. There was no significant interaction found with self monitoring. This study has implications for future interventions to criminal behavior and recidivism, and how different people can be affected based on individual characteristics.
