Luck beliefs, PMIR, psi and the sheep-goat effect: a replication
Luke, David and Morin, Shelley (2009) Luck beliefs, PMIR, psi and the sheep-goat effect: a replication. Abstracts of papers presented at the 33rd International Conference of the Society for Psychical Research, University of Nottingham. pp. 12-13.Full text not available from this repository.
Using a non-intentional precognition test paradigm luck beliefs were explored as predictors of psi in a series of three experiments (Luke, Delanoy & Sherwood, 2008; Luke, Roe & Davison, 2008). In addition, the experiments were designed to explore aspects of Stanford’s (e.g., 1990) ‘psi-mediated instrumental response’ (PMIR) model, within which the notion fits quite neatly that luckiness may ordinarily be used euphemistically to account for everyday unconscious psi. The current study describes a basic replication of the non-intentional precognition effect and compares it to intentional precognition. The results are discussed.
