A must study for paranormal investigators.
#1
Anomalous experience in the general population

Paranormal experience and mental health

Psi and Unconscious

Disassociation and fantasy proneness

Child abuse and childhood trauma

Transliminality and reality monitoring

Reasoning and Information Processing Bias
in Delusions and Hallucinations
and in Paranormal Experiences

Transpersonal Psychology
and the Paranormal

Clinical Implications
of Paranormal Experience

Conclusion
There is no evidence that paranormal beliefs and
experiences are pathological per se, and they
appear to be common in the general population. Like
symptoms of psychosis such as hallucinations and
thought insertion, they occur in non-clinically ill
individuals. Although such experiences correlate with
various measures of psychopathology, there is a need
for further work to understand these associations. In
some instances, paranormal experiences may precipitate
psychopathology; future work should examine what
factors drive individuals from these experiences to
develop frank mental illness.

Now before I get attacked there is also other perceptions that can be found by studying many of the building trades.
Belief bias occurs when we make illogical conclusions in order to confirm our preexisting beliefs. Belief perseverance refers to our tendency to maintain a belief even after the evidence we used to form the belief is contradicted.
