Abstract. The study presented sought to investigate the correlates of precognitive dream belief and experience. Individual differences in transliminality, cognitive thinking style, memory and precognitive dream belief and experience were measured with the use of self-report questionnaires. Implicit learning ability was assessed with a computerized implicit sequence disguised as a reaction time task. Due to prior research into paranormal belief it was hypothesized that individuals who reported an experiential thinking style and an increased number of memory errors would also report higher levels of precognitive dream belief and experience. It was also expected that highly transliminal individuals would illustrate improved performance on an implicit learning task. The results of the present study found no evidence for the proposed hypotheses. The findings are discussed in terms of the limitations of the current study and the impact they have on future research of precognitive dreams.
