Heterogeneous groups of subjects using free responses and ratings of gender-based traits show that the religious and non-religious prototypes are gender typed, since people assign feminine traits to a religious person and masculine traits to a non-religious person. Not only are women more religious than men, but these prototypes make it easier for women to be religious than it is for men.
