Research

Online surveys

You are invited to take part in our current online surveys. Although the surveys have been created to collect information from post-16 students, we are also interested in other age groups. Articles relating to these surveys may be read in our bilingual online Journal, Challenging Religious Issues (Issues 1 and 2, ' Researching Religious Experience in China' and 'Psychology and Mysticism').

Personality and Mystical Experience Survey
This project is exploring the connection between personality preferences and openness to mystical experience. You are invited to take part in our research by completing a short questionnaire. You do not need to have had a mystical experience to take part.

The first part of the questionnaire presents the Mystical Orientation Scale and the second part explores your personality preferences. There are no trick questions.

Spiritual and Religious Experiences Today Survey
This project is mapping the variety of spiritual and religious experiences reported by people today. You are invited to take part in our research by describing a spiritual or religious experience that has been important to you. Your replies are completely anonymous. They will be used to inform our future publications.

After describing your experience you are invited to complete an optional short personality test, if you would like to do so. We are interested in exploring the connection between personality preferences and different forms of spiritual and religious experience.
