Abstract
This study examined whether hypnotizability or belief in psi predicts precognition. The test measured if practice enhances memory recall with the precognitive feature being that the practice occurs after the recall test. Participants low (n = 15) and high (n = 15) in hypnotizability completed the precognition task and a psychometric measure of belief in psi. Age ranged from 19 to 65 years (16 males and 14 females). Highly hypnotizable individuals were expected to perform better than low hypnotizable on the test. We also predicted that individuals who believed more in psi phenomena would perform better on the test. We found no effect of hypnotizability or belief in psi on task performance.
