Abstract


  • Abstract. 94 participants, drawn from a parent sample of 1206 individuals who had previously

    taken part in an assessment of the factor structure of the Oxford-Liverpool Inventory

    of Feelings and Experiences (O-LIFE), were designated into groups differentiated in terms

    of low, moderate or high levels of positive schizotypy. All also completed the dissociative

    experiences scale (DES) and the Inventory of Suggestibility (IS). Our findings suggest that

    higher reported levels of dissociative experiences and higher suggestibility both independently

    predict higher scores of positive schizotypy, although suggestibility appears to be a

    stronger predictor than dissociation.
