  • Most of us report that we believe in supernatural powers such as clairvoyance and telepathy and in the existence of ghosts.
  • The widespread reports of paranormal experiences very likely derive from many of the same mechanisms that help us make decisions in daily life.
  • Research suggests that a highly active right-brain hemisphere may cause someone to be particularly susceptible to improbable beliefs.
