Abstract

Caucasian-American, African-American, Chinese, and Japanese college students were polled regarding deja vu, night paralysis, extrasensory perception (ESP), contact with the dead, out-of-body experience (OBE), and belief in ESP. Hypotheses derived from the cultural source theory suggest that religiosity and scientific training affect the reporting of these episodes. Although the incidence of reported experiences varied cross-culturally, knowledge of a respondent's religious preference,self-reported religiosity, or scientific training provided little predictive ability regarding frequency of anomalous experience or belief in ESP. An alternative model suggests that dissociative faculties and related traits regulate the incidence of anomalous experience.
