Variable Label: Ever see vision that others couldn't see


PS1a

The next questions are about unusual things, like seeing visions or hearing voices. We believe that these things may be quite common, but we don't know for sure because previous research has not done a good job asking about them. So please take your time and think carefully before answering.

The first thing is seeing a vision -- that is, seeing something that other people who were there could not see. Did you ever see a vision that other people could not see?

Variable Label: Ever hear voices others couldn't hear


PS1b

The second thing is hearing voices that other people could not hear. I don't mean having good hearing, but rather hearing things that other people said did not exist, like strange voices coming from inside your head talking to you or about you, or voices coming out of the air when there was no one around. Did you ever hear voices?

1 YES

5 NO

A discrepancy exists between the question text in the surveys. You may wish to compare question text to determine how it affects the variable results.

Variable Label: Ever have mind control experience


PS1c

The third thing is really two. One is believing that some mysterious force was inserting many different strange thoughts -- that were definitely not your own thoughts - directly into your head by means of x-rays or laser beams or other methods. The other is believing that your own thoughts were being stolen out of your mind by some strange force. Did you ever have either of these mind control experiences?
