Year: 2020 Vol: 5 Number: 3
Spirituality and religiosity are increasingly becoming a necessity for each individual in supporting the quality and well-being of life. Student involvement in self-reflection affects their spirituality / religiosity. This study aims to determine the relationship between self-reflection and spirituality/religiousness (S/R), which is moderated by gender. This research uses a quantitative approach with a correlational design. The study sample consisted of 124 students with a mean age of 19.4 years. The total sample was obtained from 98 women and 26 men. Sample selected from students majoring in Elementary School Teachers (PGSD) in various semesters with a purposive sampling method. Measuring instruments used are the Ironson-Wood Spirituality/religiousness Index (IWSRI) and The Self-Reflection and Insight Scale (SRIS). Data analysis using Process Macros. The results showed that there was a significant effect of self-reflection on spirituality/religiousness (B=0.669; p=0.000) and gender could not moderate the effect of self-reflection on spirituality/religiousness on students of Elementary School Teachers (PGSD) (B=-0.317; p=0.369). Based on research conducted, it can be concluded that self-reflection significantly influences spirituality/religiousness, and gender is not able to strengthen or weaken the effect of self-reflection on spirituality/religiousness; thus, gender cannot become a moderator between self-reflection and spirituality/religiousness.
