Notes

Abstract: Near-death experiences (NDEs) are purported by many researchers and experiencers to produce positive changes in life attitudes, such as a sense of purpose, acceptance of death, concern for others, and an awareness of the value of life. This study explores the association between NDEs and subsequent attitude changes through the responses of 28 near-death experiencers on the Life Attitude Profile (LAP) questionnaire. The 20 women and 8 men who completed the LAP ranged in age from 31 to 75 years and lived all over the country, with no majority from any geographical region. Religious background was varied. Positive changes in life attitude were found to significant degrees in all of the respondents, strongly suggesting that a relationship exists with the NDE.
