Notes

Abstract: This investigation compared the frequency of psi experiences, psi-related experiences, mystical states, dream experiences, and a variety of demographic variables for three criterion groups. Comprising the three groups were 358 individuals who had never come close to death, 105 people who claimed to have had a close call with death but without an intense experience associated with it, and 84 individuals whose responses to a questionnaire indicated they had had a near-death experience (NDE). Analyses revealed that the NDE group manifested a significantly greater incidence of psi and psi-related experiences, dream experiences, and mystical states. The study also reported on an item analysis of NDE characteristics and on an effort to develop and NDE score. The NDE group was further separated into "moderate" and "deep" experiencers based on the NDE score. Comparisons of these two groups resulted in fewer significant differences in psi experiences than in the original three-group analyses.
