In a world where many things are not explainable, people turn to psychics for the answers. What do you think? Do you believe in the power of ESP? Take the poll below and see what everyone else thinks too!
A majority of Americans – 57% – say they believe in psychic phenomena such as ESP (Extra Sensory Perception), telepathy or experiences that can’t be explained by normal means.
While a majority of the public believes psychic phenomena take place, only a small number say they have actually had a psychic experience. Eight in 10 have never had such an encounter, and 16% say they have.
Even though an equal number of men and women think psychic phenomena happen (57%), more women than men say they have experienced phenomena such as telepathy or ESP. 20% of women admit to having an experience compared to 13% of men. Age plays a factor too. Those between the ages of 45-64 are the age group most likely to say they’ve had a psychic encounter (21%). Just 11% of Americans under 30 likely to say they’ve had a psychic experience. Also, adults who think psychic phenomena occur are more likely to admit they’ve had a psychic experience. 26% of believers say the have had an experience, compared to only 4% of non-believers.
