Attitudes towards extraordinary phenomena

Welcome to a study on attitudes towards extraordinary phenomena. This study is dedicated to the development of a new questionnaire as well as exploring individual differences between people with respect to some extraordinary experiences. It is run by Milan Valášek, a psychology PhD student at the University of Edinburgh supervised by Dr. Caroline Watt.

The study has been approved by the University of Edinburgh Research Ethics Board.

In this study you are asked to fill in a questionnaire about your beliefs, experiences and attitudes towards dreams, including precognitive dreams (dreams that seem to predict future events). There are also questions about basic demographic characteristics (such as age or gender) and about the quality of your sleep. Please read the instructions carefully and reply accordingly. Complete the questions as accurately and truthfully as possible but do not ponder the answers for too long.

The questionnaire is completed anonymously and takes about 10-30 minutes to complete, depending on your answers.

Please answer all the questions as a complete set of responses is crucial for the study.
