I am a college student about to start my sociology research project. For my topic I have chosen Parasociology. I am in the process of designing a survey for research purposes. This topic was chosen because I believe that with many people, they include in their life paranormal things. It may mean life after death, reincarnation, communicating with the dead, etc.
I wish to see if they do indeed believe in the paranormal and, to what extent. The survey will probably be given to college students as I do not have the resources to do a national or international study.
Anybody have any resources (journals, experiences, etc.) concerning interaction between the living and those that have passed on? How has a person changed their life to accommodate their belief?
