A 26-item Revised Paranormal Belief Scale is introduced which provides a measure of degree of
belief in each of seven dimensions: Traditional Religious Belief, Psi, Witchcraft, Superstition,
Spiritualism, Extraordinary Life Forms, and Precognition. Improvements from the original 25-
item Paranormal Belief Scale (Tobacyk & Milford, 1983) include adoption of a seven-point rating
scale as well as item changes for three subscales: Precognition, Witchcraft, and Extraordinary
Life Forms. These improvements provide greater reliability and validity, less restriction of range,
and greater cross-cultural validity.
