Abstract

This study examines the association between mystical experience, as captured by the Francis–Louden Mystical Orientation Scale, and psychological health, as captured by the Eysenckian three-dimensional model of personality, among 329 students attending a state university in Turkey. The data reported no significant association between mystical orientation and psychoticism scores, and a small but significant positive association between mystical orientation and neuroticism scores, after controlling for sex differences. This finding suggests that there may be a small inverse association between mystical experience and psychological health among students in Turkey.
