Purpose & Scope of Questionairre

The purpose of this questionnaire is to find out whether or not a remote viewer sometimes knows when he or she is correct about one or more aspects of a remote viewing target during their session.

Is there a common feeling or sense or experience that lets viewers “know” they are correct and that is then later confirmed through positive feedback?

We do not assume that a viewer has such a sense. We want to discover whether this is the case. 

This questionnaire will seek to identify (1) if a remote viewer ever has this kind of sense and, if so, then (2) what happens for the viewer to give them this sense? How prevalent and reliable do they believe this knowing to be?
 
Our end goal is to see whether such a sense can bring a level of confidence to those who remote viewers work with—whether clients, project managers, researchers, or just themselves. This is especially important when someone is attempting to learn something from the sessions that is unknown and they may need to act on this information.

Your participation will be anonymous. Your name will not be revealed in connection with the survey responses, and your data will be treated confidentially—in accordance with best research practices. 

NOTE: We are limiting the scope of the current survey to experiences one has during a remote viewing session, as opposed to other psi-based sessions. We are seeking to hear from those who:

·      Are at least at an intermediate level of remote viewing with some level of training already.

·      Who understand the difference between remote viewing (as defined by its historical context) and other forms of psi-based practices (such as intuitive or mediumship readings).

It is fine for those who do both remote viewing and other psi-based practices to participate. However, in the current survey, we are only asking about your remote viewing sessions.

If you aren't sure if you qualify, please inquire before proceeding with the survey at dkatz@irva.org.

It is important to answer each question accurately, carefully, and to the best of your knowledge. 

Thank you for participating!
