Medidas psicológicas en relación con experiencias alucinatorias y experiencias aparicionales

  • Alejandro Parra Universidad Abierta Interamericana (Argentina)
Palabras clave: experiencia alucinatoria, experiencias aparicionales

Resumen

Una aparición es una experiencia visual en la que parece estar presente una persona o un animal (vivo o muerto), que está fuera del alcance sensorial de quien lo experimenta. Se pusieron a prueba algunas hipótesis: que la gente que ve apariciones tiene alta capacidad de absorción, propensión a la fantasía, disociación, mayor inestabilidad emocional (neuroticismo) y mayor propensidad a la esquizotipia que los que no las han experimentado. Los resultados mostraron que los individuos que han visto apariciones (u otras experiencias) puntuaron más alto en absorción, disociación, propensidad a la fantasía y esquizotipia cognitivoperceptual que quienes no tuvieron la experiencia. El estudio demostró la viabilidad de adoptar un abordaje psicológico para entender mejor la experiencia de las apariciones.
