Associate Professor of Psychology
My name is Chris Wetzel, and I am a psychology professor who is
seeking your help in assessing people's beliefs in and experiences with the
paranormal. I have developed two surveys to which I would like you to
WHAT'S IN IT FOR YOU?
Having a good measure of beliefs and experiences will facilitate
studying the paranormal. Second, once you have done the surveys, you
can find out how other people like yourself have responded.
HOW TO PARTICIPATE
In order to interpret the data, I will need to know from which type of
internet group you were recruited. The name I have given your group is
"CSICOP". You will need to input that name when the survey program
You will need either Netscape or Explorer (3.0 or higher) as browsers,
and you will need to install a (free) Authorware plug-in to them in
order to run the survey program. Please go to the following website
where there is a hotlink to the Macromedia webplayer download site:
http://psychexps.olemiss.edu/need.htm Click on the"Download the
Authorware Web Player now" to be sent to the Macromedia download site.
It may take a while for the Macromedia download page to show the
"download" button. Then follow their easy 3-step procedure. The
download/installation is seamless for PC's-- less so for MACs (see
instructions below). With a reasonably fast internet connection, the
download/install takes only a few minutes.
Once you have the plug-in installed, go to this URL to do the
After the general window opens, the paranormal survey experiment will

HOW YOUR DATA WILL BE USED
Your data will become part of a scientific study. It will not be used
for commercial purposes, nor can your individual responses be linked
you or your computer. Your data will become part of a large dataset
that survey participants can access to find out how others (in
respond. If you remember your UserId, you can log in at later dates
repeat the surveys to see how your beliefs have changed and to see how
your data compares to other people as the database grows.
I am putting out this request to a variety of groups on the web, so
may get this request from more than one source. If so, use whatever
webgroup you most closely align yourself with as your recruitment
INSTRUCTIONS FOR MAC USERS
Please use Netscape as your internet browser-Explorer does not work
properly with Authorware. You can download Netscape Navigator from
www.netscape.com . Please follow these instructions after you
the Authorware plugin; they will take less than a minute to do.
1) The plugin is downloaded as a compressed file. You will need to
uncompress it with something like Stuffit. When Stuffit Expander,
automatically extracts, it may say falsely that the file is corrupted.
Say "No" about continuing the extraction.
2) Then look on your desktop (or to wherever you downloaded). Ignore
the file called "AW webplayer...hqx" and instead open the file called:
