      Academic survey about lucid dreaming

      Hi,

      I am a student from the Philipps University of Marburg, Germany. I am writing my master thesis about lucid dreaming. Therefor I created an online survey to investigate what factors may contribute to lucid experiences.

      I would be delighted if you would like to participate and help me (and science) for a better understanding of lucid dreaming.

      Due to methodological issues, I am only looking for participants who

      -never received a diagnose of a sleeping disorder, psychiatric disorder or neurological disorder
      -can recall three dreams per week or more (no matter if lucid or not)

      At the beginning of the survey, I will ask you about these criteria. Please do not feel bad, if you cannot participate because of these reasons.

      The survey will take about 10-20 minutes, and you will have the chance to win one out of three 20$ Amazon vouchers (or equivalent to your currency) if you completed it.


      The link: https://www.soscisurvey.de/luz2019/


      Thank you very much for your interest and participation!

      Kind regards,
      Stephan

      Interesting. can you explain why you are excluding these groups? For instance, I suffer from seasonal depression and take meds for it about 4 out of 12 months. How would this invalidate any results? I am truly not offended, but being a scientist myself am honestly interested in why this exclusion criteria is there.

      Hey sivason, sorry for my late answer. This is indeed a very strict criterium and maybe a bit too overgeneralizing. I just hope to reduce outliers by this.

      Is the outlier reduction because maybe mental illness would have a higher rate of liars who make stuff up?

      Mostly because psychic illness often comes with sleeping issues. Idk if there are more liars, I would say only in specific groups of mental illnesses not in general.
      And trouble with sleeping would of course bring a lot of variance. But again, to exclude all people with some diagnose of cause is a very broad category...
