Zeitschrift fur P~~ar__a. s chologi~ie.__ und Grenz eb.tete der Psyc o ogle, 1973, 15(3), 171-186. 19 rail; 3 tables There exists a remarkable dis- cre'nnC`v het.Woer: "quanci' ative" parap- sychological experiments, often inves- tigating the paranormal transfer of in- formation in dull laboratory atmosphere without emotional components, and the "qualitative" analysis of spontaneous parapsychological events which only sel- domly show a clear transfer of information; instead of this, in the multitude of happenings, a diffuse, sym- bolically encoded transfer of emotional contents and emotional states are found. The author proposes three models for investigation which are more adequate to the emotional character of a parapsy- chological phenomena than the quan- titative-statistical experiments used up to now. Testing two methodical experi- ments with a few samples (14 to 25 sub- jects as ESP percipients), only one ex- periment out of nine partial experiments yielded a highly significant ESP result for the group. These results show that the ESP performance in the group was highly dependent on the emotional load- ing of the target material.- DA 01666. Burger, Heidi. Psychosocial as- pects of spontaneous psychokinesis. Zeitschrift fur Para s cholo iie and Gre z e bid to -der Ps c o o ie, 19~ 5(49, 213-229. refs Most parapsychological publications on recurrent spontaneous psychokinesis (RSPK) are primarily interested in the description, documentation and confirma- tion of the phenomena in question. In this paper, however, a selection of so- cial and psychological results are examined: The effect of "social perception" (a perception which is con- ditioned by social influences) on the witnesses, and on their opinions, as well as the conflict of the "unex- plainable" phenomena with the standards and roles of the persons involved. We conclude from the results of this study that the sociopsychological aspect is indispensible for a comprehensive ana- lysis of spontaneous psychokinesis. The implications concern the evaluation of the witnesses'. credibility as well as psychotherapeutic arguments in favor of scientists working in the field of spon- taneous psychokinesis (RSPK). - DA 01667.
