Theistic intellectual humility and well-being: does ideological context matter?
Rosemead School of Psychology
Existing conceptualizations and operationalizations of intellectual humility (IH) have not taken into account the way IH is experienced and expressed by theists. Based on a conceptualization of Christian theistic intellectual humility, we developed a measure of the construct, following established measure development steps of developing and reviewing scale items, exploring and confirming the factor structure, and establishing construct validity. We then tested the usefulness of the resulting scale by showing that theistic intellectual humility moderates four of the five tested relationships between religious commitment and well-being.
