This is the second of three studies geared toward understanding the fallibility of human perception. Many researchers believe they are fairly adept at understanding what is said in their EVP recordings. Based on the results of the first segment of our study we have found people are accurate only 40% of the time. That of course means they are wrong 60% of time. Do you think you can do better?
As mentioned before the purpose of this study is to develop a statistical analysis relating to the general population’s ability to understand recorded communications in varying degrees of clarity. Please listen to the 10 files presented here and simply tell us what you hear the voice saying (if anything at all). You may replay the files as many times as you like. Each file is on average on 5 seconds in length and yes, we do know the content of each file.
WHAT CAN WE LEARN FROM THIS STUDY?
This study serves to help us understand the perceptions of paranormal researchers and witnesses alike. It also provides data on the types of EVP recording that are most easily understood. When we understand the abilities and limitations of human perception it allows us to better establish the reliability and accuracy of human testimony. We can also better understand the analysis of other teams and researchers by establishing the percentage at which the average EVP analysis is likely to be accurate. Any result is another piece of the puzzle.
