Teknik analisis yang digunakan adalah uji T-test untuk membandingkan dua kelompok sampel. Instrumen dalam penelitian ini menggunakan Transgression-Related Interpersonal Motivation-12 (TRIM-12) milik McCullough (1998). Hasil penelitian ini menunjukkan bahwa tidak terdapat perbedaan motivasi pemaafan antara mahasiswa yang beragama Islam dan mahasiswa beragama Kristen.
