was the bias produced in this activity?
(The bias was generated by the deceitful description
of the sixth sense. By telling the individuals that a human
energy field really existed, they most likely came to believe
that they were able to detect such a field. It was strictly
their belief that gave them this ability - a belief that
was further reinforced by the visual clues they received.)
your subjects demonstrate a bias? If so, how?
(Answers will vary, but many people will concur that
they did detect the "energy field.")
was it important to keep your hand at least several inches
above the subject's hand?
(To avoid creating air currents that might be detected
by the sense of touch)
was a blindfold used in the second part of this activity?
(The blindfold ruled out the visual clues.)
your subject's ability to "detect" the energy field change
when blindfolded? In what way?
(Most likely, subjects were less accurate in detecting
the energy field once they were no longer getting the visual
clues, revealing the subject's unconscious connection between
what they see and what they feel.
