Parapsychology Journalism: The People, The Theory, The Science, The Skeptics
The number one searched for article on my blog is characteristics of psychic people. The truth is, not very much is there.
Very little is known about psychic people and the only way we are going to learn more is by taking the initiative and doing it ourselves. To that end, I am in the process of creating a questionnaire that I plan to eventually distribute to between 200 and 500 psychic people, if I can find that many. Why so many? Because in social science, larger numbers are more significant.
The objective is for this to have scientific merit, so I will be soliciting the help of people experienced in psychological testing. If any of you can provide me with help in this area it would be appreciated. I intend to include a list of standard psychological personality trait questions where the answers are known for the general population already. This is to be able to compare our answers to everyone else’s and see what pops up.
This is the very first stage of creating the questionnaire and at this point I am soliciting everyone for questions they want answered. Anyone can be a collaborator, just e-mail me. A document is on-line in google docs and I will give you access to modify it. If anyone can think of a better way to do this let me know. I’m open. All suggestions will be given consideration. This will take awhile to put together because it will be a big effort and I have to get it right the first time.
If you just have a question or two that you want included, feel free to leave them as comments.
This will be original research and a genuine contribution to science whether it is accepted by the mainstream or not. It is unexplored territory and open to whoever has the desire to pursue it. Please join me in making this possible.
