Psychology surveys and studies

17 posts in this topic

Now and again we are contacted by psychology students, researchers and other academics from a variety of universities looking for site visitors to take part in studies pertaining to paranormal beliefs, psychic phenomena, spirituality and other similar topics.

To this end I thought I'd set up a dedicated thread where these studies and their results can be posted for those who are interested in either participating themselves or in simply learning more about the projects and their findings.

Hi everyone! My name is Helen and I'm a psychology honours student at the University of Adelaide. I'm currently running a study on the psychology of paranormal belief. It takes about 20-30 minutes to complete. There are no prizes or rewards for participating, but if you are interested you can find it at:

We are aiming for the research to be published and it is likely that the findings could make a meaningful contribution to the field. If you have any questions please feel free to email me using the email provided on the study preamble. Thank you so much!

Cool I ran through the experiment. On the psychic test I got the first one right, then I started to do very horrible. I was trying to close my eyes and discover the answer. Then I got board and just picked one. It was right. I discovered if I didn't think but just acted on impulse My score was tremendously improved. I finished the test this way. Of course it's close to random, but the first half was miserable but I saved my score by not thinking about it. 28% for me.

Fun stuff.

Can I provide some criticism?

I have a very high external locus of control including the ability not to predict the future but to select the future out of the potential. A random card generator on a pc doesn't represent the potential as it isn't actually random. Therefore I can't select the future out of it because no quantum state to select it from exists.

What happens if you believe there is no reality independant of the mind? That means no independant God, no independant matter, no independant energy, no intependant beings, no independant past, no independant present, no independant future, etc. The questions ask me if I have experience of or can influence things which exist independantly from me. I have power over my mind and that determines the foundations for the illusion mistaken for an external and independant reality.

Hello, Helen.

I am a skeptic when it comes to the paranormal, nevertheless I am interested in the topic (hence my involvement here) and clicked the link to your survey with the intention of undertaking it. Unfortunately, the ability to start the survey appears to no longer exist on the page linked to. Can I ask if the survey has now lapsed, because there was no information given as to what date the survey would be open until? Thanks.

Hi everyone :clap:

I am searching for people who have used a wide range of paranormal services including mediums, psychics, tarot, angel, spirit and rune cards as well as new age sevices such as crystal healers and reiki to take part in a research project on behalf of the University of Central Lancashire (Preston)

The questionnaire only takes 15 minutes to complete! I cannot describe how much I would appreciate as many people as possible filling this in for me over the next month! Here is the link to the study:

If you have any questions at all about the research please email me at ELLowrie@uclan.ac.uk!

Hi everyone

I need as many people as possible to complete my study for my final year project.

Its on Extra Sensory Perception (Clairvoyant ability) in card selection task.

Everyone can participate so please share.

Many Thanks

https://derby.qualtr...3QWR7nxTrrD72cZ

Quick notes about the study:

Please allow about 20 minutes to complete the study

Your participant number is the last 3 letters of your first name followed by a / then last 3 numbers of your phone number.

You will be asked to predict the next card in the sequence 100 times in total (50 for Zener Cards and 50 for playing cards) - When selecting cards pick the first card that comes into your head, please don't over think.

When you select your card the page wont visually change so please don't be worried that it has frozen or not progressing because after 50 card selections it will automatically change to playing cards.

At the end of the study you will get your score that will reveal your possible psychic ability

Thanks again Sarah

Hello everyone! 

I’m a third year student of Psychology with Criminology at University of East London currently working on a dissertation about the relationship between personality factors and paranormal belief.

I would like to invite you to take part in my study. It’s an online survey that will take approximately 15 minutes. To take part in this study you need to be at least 18 years old, there is no other requirements. You may believe in paranormal phenomena (such as ghosts, ufo, psychic abilities, extrasensory perception, etc.) or you may see yourself as a sceptic, it doesn’t really matter. I am looking for both believers and non-believers.

If you are interested in this study and would like to take part in it, please follow the anonymous link below for more information:

https://uelpsych.eu.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_1B61YRZLxGX0vVb

If you got any questions you can post them here or e-mail me at u1315781@uel.ac.uk.

Thank you!

Your idea, Saru, is a good one as it may bring some rigor to the research. Might I also suggest that any pertinent materials related to the research also be posted or made available in some manner. This would include: the intent of the research and specifically the proposed questions to be researched; research methods used to include the participants; any institutional research board (IRB) related approvals to perform the research, and how the results of the research will be made available. Because students may be performing the research this approach encourages good research design and accountability while also informing the potential audience as to the intent and limitations of the research. This approach will also help discourage trolls and other scams.
