I think people with stable beliefs and convictions, who have a hardy outlook about life's challenges, tend to be able to cope with stress more than people who veer toward "dabbling" and experimentation. It's not just exclusive to the religiously devout, but there have been case studies that have shown religious people tend to have a longer lifespan than others. That's just a correlation, but it's food for thought.
Characteristics of the Hardy Personality
Commitment- sense of self, direction and place in life
Control- personal agency, internal locus of control
Challenge- looked at change as expected, and normal. A challenge to overcome but not a stressor
I'm a dabbler myself.
