InPresence 133The Sheep Goat Effect in Parapsychology

jeffrey mishlove


InPresence host, Jeffrey Mishlove, PhD, is author of The Roots of Consciousness, Psi Development Systems, and The PK Man. Between 1986 and 2002 he hosted and co-produced the original Thinking Allowed public television series. He is the recipient of the only doctoral diploma in “parapsychology” ever awarded by an accredited university (University of California, Berkeley, 1980). For many years he served as president of the non-profit Intuition Network, an organization dedicated to creating a world in which all people were supported and encouraged in developing inner intuitive abilities.

Here Jeff discusses one of the most well-attested findings in parapsychology. People who believe that they can perform well on a test of ESP tend to do so; while people who do not have confidence in their ability tend to score at chance levels of below. Statistically significant psi scoring, below chance expectation, is known as psi-missing. Jeff integrates this finding with our general understanding of the role of belief systems in human performance behavior.
