Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
The project was a computerized conceptual replication of the classical Brugmans, Heymans, and Weinberg study of 1920. The experimental design did not only prove to work out well but it was well accepted by the participants; nonetheless the results did not turn out as good as it has been hoped for (due to the implementation of several variables supposed to be psi-conducive). From a total of 5658 runs (61 of them invalid) we had 180 hits as opposed to the chance expectation of 156 hits. The participants were pairs of emotionally-linked persons, e.g. siblings, spouses, intimate, close friends, etc. From this population the mother-child teams scored remarkably better than any other kind of relationship. The (albeit very few) left-handers scored remarkably better than the right-handers. Correlations between hits and the psychological test data of Psychological Variables (NEO-PI-R, Paranormal Belief Scale, Sheep Goat Scale) turned out to be largely insignificant. Interviews with the participants revealed that many of them had experienced occurrences that they themselves rated as paranormal. There was a remarkable side effect: With certain participants the computer applet crashed time and again. Invariably, those persons reported freely – i.e. without being questioned – having had experienced frequent problems with electrical/electronic appliances, from simple light bulbs to computers. Hence, it makes sense to interpret the crashes of the applet as an involuntary PK effect that warrants further investigation. However, there was no correlation between these crashes and the hits scored by this sub-population. With other persons, the applet was running stable hence technical problems are to be ruled out.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
This project was aimed at testing and improving an experimental protocol for successful ESP research
derived from a previous phase of research (Perez-Navarro, 2003). Two studies were conducted using the standard Ganzfeld sensory attenuation technique (see e. g. Bem and Honorton, 1994). In each experiment two participants were tested. One would act as a telepathic sender, trying to communicate the meaning and characteristics of a visual stimulus to the second participant (the receiver) who, under sensory attenuation in a distant room, reported his spontaneous mental imagery and subjective impressions. The first study (N=60) was conducted in order to explore a set of participants’ traits, state, and environmental factors as predictors of the study success. Five variables showed significant associations with the participants’ ESP scores at an a=.01. These were: sensory adaptation, concern on the external environment, absorption, and task disorientation during Ganzfeld stimulation as well as pre-session energetic arousal. A stepwise forward logistic regression analysis performed on the predictors with p-values of .05 or less showed a 3 variable solution. Thus, the probability of obtaining a hit in a given experiment was accounted by pre-session energetic arousal, concern about the external environment, and task disorientation during the Ganzfeld
stimulation. The second study (N=90) showed a significant hit rate of 33% (z=1.86, p= 0.03, one tail). Only four of the predictors tested replicated both significance and direction from the previous study. These were neuroticism, sensory adaptation, absorption, and task disorientation during the Ganzfeld stimulation. Three further variables (practice of mental disciplines, pre-session arousal, and arousal during the Ganzfeld stimulation) replicated direction but did not reach statistical significance in this second series. It was concluded that operating simultaneously on three domains (participant selection, pre and on-session state, and post-hoc indicators of the occurrence of psi) screening for participants and/or weighting sessions on the basis of the successful predictors observed in the pilot series was an efficient strategy to increase the rate of success in the main study.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Participants (Ps) (N=64), equally divided between strong believers in the paranormal and strong skeptics, guessed out loud which number (1-4) a pseudo-RNG would select for each trial while simultaneously clicking the mouse. In the 1st 2 of 4 runs, the target sequences (N=81) were biased, reflecting either pure repetition avoidance (RA) or pure counting (CO), e.g., 2,3,4,1,2,3. As expected, scoring was above chance in both runs but significant only in the RA run. Although all Ps demonstrated marked RA, the deficit was only slightly greater for believers than skeptics.
In the RA run, RA correlated negatively and significantly with hits for believers; the correlation reversed slightly for skeptics.
Between Runs 2 and 3, Ps completed a drawing task and questionnaires measuring tolerance of ambiguity and temporal lobe dysfunction (LIMBEX). Believers scored dramatically higher than skeptics on LIMBEX.
Targets for Run 3 (N=101) were random, except that if P clicked the mouse when a computer address contained a 1 rather than a 0 (1-state), which occurred randomly 20% of the time, their target for the next trial matched their personal response bias as calculated from the preceding 2 runs. As predicted from decision augmentation theory, believers clicked the mouse when the computer was in the 1-state significantly more often than chance expectation and significantly more often than did skeptics.
In the last run (N=100), Ps received either subliminal or supraliminal feedback of the preceding target. For half of each group, after trials 1-10 the targets repeated Ps’ previous responses with a lag of 10 (pro-bias targets). The other Ps received a target sequence diametrically opposite to their response bias in Runs 1 and 2 (counter-bias targets). Contrary to expectation, only skeptics showed a greater increase in correct guesses from the 1st to the 2nd half of the run (implicit sequence learning, or ISL) with pro-bias than counter-bias targets. The subliminality manipulation had no effect. The ISL effect reversed slightly for high LIMBEX Ps; thus, temporal lobe instability seems to prevent ISL. Runs 3 and 4 also tested the “anomalous anticipation effect.” As predicted from the results of 2 previous experiments, skeptics correctly anticipated the nature of the bias (pro or counter) in Run 4 by manifesting the corresponding bias in Run 3, whereas believers anticipated incorrectly. However, this result occurred only if the Run 4 targets were subliminal.

Abstract/Results: RESULTS:
The I Ching is an ancient Chinese system of divination. The user throws three coins, six times, to generate one of 64 possible six-line symbols or hexagrams, and then consults the associated divinatory reading. It is conjectured that the I Ching process is underscored by a paranormal process the cause of which is likely to be the individual user. Past research has produced mixed results—in five studies, effects have ranged from chance, to significantly above chance, but no effect significantly below chance has been found. In a study by L. Storm (2006) it was theorised that hexagram targeting may accord with the participant’s time perspective—a present time perspective (PTP) refers to immediate events; a future time perspective (FTP) refers to what fate has in store.
PTP and FTP types are determined from scores on the Time Perspective Inventory (Zimbardo & Boyd, 1999). In Storm’s (2006) study and the present study it was hypothesised that PTP types prefer first-hexagrams, and FTP types prefer second hexagrams. Storm (2006) produced results that were in the directions hypothesized. In this replication study (N = 150), hit rates for PTP types on first-hexagram hitting (30%) did exceed hit rates for FTP types (25%) as hypothesised, although the difference was not significant. The hit rate for FTP types on second-hexagram hitting (22%) did not exceed the hit rate for PTP types (27%). Hit rates were above chance on first-hexagram hitting (25.3%), but below chance on second-hexagram hitting (24.6%). Neither effect was significant. First-hexagram hitters rated their readings significantly higher (73%) on meaningfulness than first-hexagram missers (65%), p = .04. This effect was interpreted as fulfilling a theoretical condition that defines “meaningful coincidence” or synchronicity (Jung, 1960). A significant sheep-goat effect was found. A marginally significant aggregated hexagram hit rate of 27% across the six studies was also found (p = .072). Two judges rated the 64 descriptor pairs of the Hexagram Descriptor Form.
Mean descriptor-pair ratings ranged between 60% and 82%. The experimental I Ching method was tested against three control methods. For the control methods, only 4.5% of the results were significant or marginally significant which could all be attributed to chance, but 14% of tests using the experimental method were significant or marginally significant effects.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
In six studies on the I Ching—an ancient Chinese system of divination—successful predictions of first- and second-hexagrams (i.e., hexagram hitting) based on pre-selections of corresponding descriptor-pairs have ranged from chance, to significantly above chance. No significant effect below chance has ever been found. Hexagram hitting has been predicted by measures such as paranormal belief, time perspective, and meaningfulness. Storm (2008a) found a near-significant aggregate hexagram hit rate of 27%. Though these results are encouraging, there has been no assessment of the reliability and validity of the main test instrument used in the I Ching studies, the Hexagram Descriptor Form (HDF). To test the validity of the HDF, three control methods were tested against the experimental method. Taking first- and second-hexagram hit rates together, three out of 22 tests on the experimental method (14%) were significant or near-significant. Three significant or near-significant outcomes out of 66 control tests (4.5%) were attributed to chance. Inter-rater reliability was tested using two I Ching experts who judged the 64 descriptor-pairs of the HDF for suitability against their corresponding hexagram readings. The correlation between judges’ ratings was not significant (the mean rating ranged between 60% and 82%). Using the pooled data of six studies, the HDF was tested for possible selection and outcome biases. A selection bias was found, but no outcome biases were found. The I Ching and the HDF were considered suitable for parapsychological research.

Abstract/Results: RESULTS:
We conducted two trials of a free-response ESP test. The aim was to determine if two groups, ‘low’- and ‘high’-scorers on a measure of hypnotic susceptibility, would score differently on a psi-hitting task. We used the Harvard Group Scale of Hypnotic Susceptibility which assesses the hypnotisability of subjects when tested in groups. The sample (N = 101 psi-believing participants; 69 females and 32 males) was split into ‘High HS’ (n = 20) and ‘Low HS’ groups (n = 81) based on HS scores. There was a significant difference between the two groups on Hypnotic Susceptibility and psi scores (i.e., number of hits), t(99) = 2.31, p = .012. A second study was carried out. A number of papers have investigated the idea of rational versus intuitive thinking and how this might relate to paranormal beliefs. Those who possess both intuitive and rational thinking styles are more likely to report paranormal experiences and subjective paranormal ability than those who express either intuitive or rational thinking. The purpose of the present study was to investigate the differences between psychic claimants (N = 49) and non-psychic claimants (N = 45) on such personality factors as Global Constructive Thinking, Emotional Coping, Behavioural Coping, and Esoteric Thinking. The sample consisted of 94 participants, all of whom believed in psi. Participants completed the Constructive Thinking Inventory and the Anomalous Experiences Inventory. The psychic claimants group had significantly higher scores on 12 out of 23 factors/facets which could not all be explained by chance. Compared to non-psychic claimants, the psychic claimants tend to have more positive attitudes; their thinking is action-oriented; they are good behavioural copers; they think in ways that promote effective action; and they are more accepting of others. At the same time, they are more rigid in their thinking than non-psychic claimants.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
We conducted two trials of a free-response ESP test. The aim was to determine if two groups of the hypnotically susceptible –the low and high scorers– scored differently in terms of psi hitting. The sample consisted of 101 subjects (69 females and 32 males) psi-believing participants. We used the Harvard Group Scale of Hypnotic Susceptibility which assesses the hypnotisability level when subjects are tested in groups. Participants were categorised as the "High HS" group (N = 20) and "Low HS" group (N = 81). We also used the following criteria to split the sample into three hitting groups: (1) No hits within two trials. one hit within two trials, and (3) Two hits within two trials. The difference among three groups (no hit, one hit, and two hits) was significant (p = .017, 1-tailed). The High HS group scored higher than the Low HS group, which scored at chance (p = .03, 1-tailed).

Extrasensorial experiences and hallucinatory experience: Links with personality and perceptual measures
Publication year: 2009

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Numerous studies have found that normal, healthy individuals may experience hallucinations, which reveal that a substantial number of nonclinical participants (i.e., people who have not been clinically referred or have never received a psychiatric or neurological diagnosis) report having typical hallucinatory experiences. In contrast, an extrasensory experience is one in which it appears that the experient's mind has acquired information directly, that is, seemingly without either the mediation of the recognized human senses or the processes of logical inference. The extrasensory experience pertains to appearances and not necessarily to reality, whereas the "extrasensory" in extrasensory perception refers to the nature of a hypothesized paranormal reality. Research on predisposition to extrasensorial experiences has evaluated differences between nonexperients and experients. The similarity between symptoms of schizotypal personality disorder and characteristics of ESP experiences is marked. These experiences do not occur in a vacuum but are closely interwoven with many other psychological processes. A total of 648 undergraduate psychology students at Faculty of Psychology of the UAI from Argentina, 494 (76%) females and 154 (24%) males, ranging in age from 17 to 57 years (M = 25.11, SD = 7.23), who completed six scales, Hallucination Experiences Scale; the Schizotypical Personality Questionnaire, the Eysenck Personality Questionnaire; the Dissociation Experiences Scale ; the Tellegen Absorption Scale; and the Creative Experiences Questionnaire. The present study examined the differences between persons with and without Precognitive dreams (N Yes= 46%) and Extrasensorial experiences (N Yes= 45%) on different cognitive and psychological measures. The findings suggest that especially cognitive-perceptual aspects of schizotypy (both experiences z= 4.68; p < .001, one-tailed) are essential features of persons who had Precognitive dreams and Extrasensory Experiences; also suggesting that the dissociational model of extrasensorial experiences, which assumed that under lying dissociative proceses such as absorption and fantasy proneness are associated with ESP Experiences and Precognitive dreams. The cognitive-perceptual aspects of schizotypy, dissociation, and absorption seem to be present in the personal predisposition for experiencing an ESP Experiences. A possible theoretical model that seems to emerge from the present results is that of a “happy schizotype”. Positive schizotypy, reflecting hallucinations and altered perceptual experiences, has been related to subjective anomalous and para normal experiences and beliefs. It is tentatively concluded that the const ellation of interrelated factors which make up the construct of the “fantasy prone personality” provide a psychological predisposition for the extrasensorial experiences experience.
