Hi all,

I am really struggling right now with my analysis of the data I have collected for my dissertation.

My question is 'Do individual paranormal beliefs and experiences affect risk taking and risk perception in individuals?'

My hypothesis is that those individuals that score higher on the paranormal scales are more likely to perceive situations as risky and less likely to engage in them.

I gave my participants three scales: Tobacyk revised paranormal belief scale (to measure their belief in the paranormal), The Australian sheep- goat scale (to measure previous paranormal experiences, and the DOSPERT Risk scale (which measured how risky they believed a behaviour to be and also how likely they would be to engage in that behaviour).

I am completely stumped of what analysis I need to use SPSS! Any guidance would be massively appreciated right now!

Hi,
I'm doing my dissertation too, and found online tutorials on Youtube really helpful!
But as a little guidance.. on SPSS, you'll need to find out which type of statistical analysis you need to use on your results (2x2 ANOVA/between participants or repeated measures etc.).
You'll have to put each individual question as a separate variable, and reverse code the items on the scale to make sure they all measure the same thing.
But yeah have a look on Youtube as some videos explain things really well!
Hope this helps!
