Abstract

This study compares the psychological type profile of pastors who lead Pentecostal churches in Singapore with wider population norms. Data provided by 117 pastors who completed the Francis Psychological Type Scales (FPTS: Francis, 2005) demonstrate that, compared with the wider population norms, these leaders were more likely to prefer introversion, sensing, feeling and judging. The implications of these findings are briefly discussed in relation to ministry, missionary training and mission.
