Religious types, for whatever reason, have relatively little capacity for doubt and wonder, and have a stronger need for family and community. They draw from their particular religion, and are more limited to another person's or book's authority.

Both sides have their dogmas and superstitions, and it's largely a difference in sophistication and emotional stability.
Gee Cory. I wonder if you consider yourself a spiritual type.
