Social context of anomalous expereinces – an online study


Many people describe having anomalous (‘unusual’) experiences, such as out-of-the-ordinary perceptions, feelings, or spiritual-type experiences that are somehow different to everyday life. We are interested in studying some of the social factors that influence these experiences. We hope to recruit as wide a range of people as possible, so it doesn’t matter whether or not you think you have these kinds of experiences. All people over 18 years old are eligible to take part.

The questionnaire can be accessed from any device with internet access (computer, tablet, or smartphone) by clicking the link below. It will take about 20-25 minutes to complete.

If you complete the online questionnaire, you can instantly enter a prize draw involving cash prizes for three randomly selected participants (1st £100; 2nd £50; 3rd £25), as well as opt-in for an additional prize draw for completing a 6-month follow-up questionnaire (1st £100; 2nd £50; 3rd £25).
