Result shows that more normal persons tend to have 3 or more of the imaging abilities than psychotics, and more psychotics tend to have 2 or less of the imaging abilities than normal persons, the differences are statistically highly significant. Result shows that for each imaging ability, only part of the population possess it, psychotic or not. Result shows that for each of the vision, hearing, motion and temporature imaging abilities, fewer psychotics possess them compared to normal people, the differences are statistically significant. Conclusion: The conclusion is: Result of this study shows that for each of the vision, hearing, motion and temporature imaging abilities, fewer psychotics possess them compared to normal people; psychotics are less likely to possess imaging abilities compared to normal people.
