ABSTRACT: A review of the literature makes a strong case for successful experimenters using their own psi to produce positive results either directly or in concert with that of their participants. The personal his- tories of well-known experimenters suggest that in some cases this capacity existed prior to their success as experimenter, and for others it seems to have occurred or reached awareness through experimentation. Examples are given of the successful performance of psi-conducive researchers when they were participants in experiments. Some hitherto unpublished aspects of the Gothenburg ganzfeld studies are presented that support these conclusions. Theoretical backgrounds in terms of current observational theory and current views of consciousness are briefly reviewed. Some ways of “forensically” or otherwise revealing the influence of experimenter psi are also presented. Experimenter psi is seen as having far-reaching implications for both psychology and parapsychology.
