  1. Parapsychology is the scientific and scholarly study of certain unusual events associated with human experience.
    A long-held, common-sense assumption is that the worlds of the subjective and objective are completely distinct, with no overlap. Subjective is “here, in the head,” and objective is “there, out in the world.” Parapsychology is the study of phenomena suggesting that the strict subjective/objective dichotomy may instead be part of a spectrum, with some phenomena occasionally falling between purely subjective and purely objective. We call such phenomena “anomalous” because they are difficult to explain within current scientific models.
    These anomalies fall into three general categories: ESP (terms are defined below), PK, and phenomena suggestive of survival after bodily death, including near-death experiences, apparitions, and reincarnation. Most parapsychologists today expect that further research will eventually explain these anomalies in scientific terms, although it is not clear whether they can be fully understood without significant (some might say revolutionary) expansions of the current state of scientific knowledge. Other researchers take the stance that existing scientific models of perception and memory are adequate to explain some or all parapsychological phenomena.
    I have included a link for you below to the Parapsychological Association the above definition is from their web site on the FAQ page.

  2. After reading that definition of parapsychologists…I’m wondering where all the parapsychologists are on this section!! Even ONE!!! I really don’t see the difference in this section and the paranormal section.I think there’s not a difference. Is there? Anybody know???
    psi exploration…Are YOU a parapsychologist? You seem to know a lot.

  3. its the study of paranormal stuff (telekineses, telepathy, psychic, extra sensory perception)
    baiscally abnormal psychology
    a parapsychologist looks for evidence of this and performs studies to see if its real, they try to explain unexplainable phenomena since most people think this is based on superstitions
