This study set out to examine the psychological type profile of Anglican clergymen serving within the Church in Wales. A sample of 231 clergymen completed the Francis Psychological Type Scales. The data demonstrated a group of clergymen who prefer introversion (69 per cent) over extraversion (31 per cent), sensing (64 per cent) over intuition (36 per cent), feeling (55 per cent) over thinking (46 per cent), and judging (78 per cent) over perceiving (23 per cent). The preference for sensing over intuition confirms the finding from a previous study among Anglican clergymen in Wales (Francis et al., 2001) and contrasts with the preferences for intuition over sensing found by two previous studies among Anglican clergymen in England (Francis et al., 2007a; Francis et al., in press). Consideration is given to the meaning of this difference in psychological type preferences between two groups of Anglican clergymen situated either side of Offa's Dyke, the historic demarcation between England and Wales.
