Welcome to
ParaLabs!

A very warm welcome to our organisation and to our website.

For over ten years now, ParaLabs has been investigating human behaviour. The results of our research are constantly shaping our daily lives: many brand-name manufacturers use the results of our investigations to create more user-friendly products, for example. Our experts are consulted by both private and corporate clients, particularly when knowledge of patterns of the human mind and behaviour is an influencing factor in project or product design.

Our research is usually conducted through a series of public tests. For example, our international clients use the ParaLabs series of tests to perform analyses of different cultures, countries and compile statistics within different socio-economic and ethnic groups.

The research serves as basis for further tests and drives new international exploration and development. Together we work to help spread knowledge and understanding of important aspects of human cognition and behaviour.

I hope you enjoy browsing our website.


Robert M. Stevenson,
Managing Director of ParaLabs

The PLF MindGEMs came off well during this year's Psychologists Soccer Championship, a casual event in the context of the United Psychologists Congress in Lake Tahoe, USA. The MindGEMs fought three uphill battles to reach the final round.

In the course of a thrilling final game the MindGEMs only just lost the match and completed the final round with a result of 1 - 2 against the "Yankee Doodle Doctors". Nevertheless the frenetic spectators at Lake Tahoe’s stadium celebrated our team and gave them an unforgettable farewell.

The results in full:

Preliminaries: MindGEMs 2 – 0 Bone Heads
Quarter-finals: MindGEMs 1 – 0 The Docs
Semi-finals: MindGEMs 3 – 1 The Freuds
Final: MindGEMs 1 – 2 Yankee Doodle Doctors

Team:

Waters (C), Paulson, Schorowski (K), Falanga, Morgan, Rodriquez, Farnsworth, Farrel, Stevenson, Klemperer, Mulham, Mulcahy (S), O'Donnel (S), Preck (S)

New Schedule 2013 online
04.07.2012 - 07:36 von ParaLabs


New class schedules online - enlarge your knowledge in the field of parapsychological research.

Despite many prejudices and uninformed opinions, the field of parapsychological studies is much more than dealing with ghosts and things that go bump in the night.

Parapsychologists are in general not very psychic (and psychics are seldom parapsychologists). So we have designed a programme to answer your questions about parapsychology and to show you more about what it involves.

Book your classes now and enlarge your skills.

Paralabs Research Report 2010/2011
04.07.2012 - 07:36 von ParaLabs


In 2011 the PLF received the research results from 331 researchers from around the world. Most of the results came from North America (98) and Europe (94). Additionally, more than 119 assistants conducted their research in South America (55), Asia (45) and Australia (39).



Our research is done by means of as series of public tests. Consultants from all over the world conducted their research based on the ParaLabs test series. It was remarkable to note that in Central Europe the PLF increased the number of its staff to 30 assistants in 2011, a rise of about 35 percent (2010: 84, 2009: 61, 2008: 43). The work of our European division became the most important source of analysis and reports to our central office.

The European main office near Siegen (Germany) is acts as a central point for 94 researchers and assistants from the UK, Spain, France, The Netherlands, Belgium, Switzerland, Germany, Austria, Italy and Poland. It is proposed that there will be an increase of staff to 120 assistants by the end of 2011.



One of the main questions for the PLF in 2009 concerned the occurrence of deviations in test series. The PLF´s assistants use standardized test material, so the results were compared internationally. Surprisingly, the results were comparable within ethic groups, sharing the same social environment and living conditions.



Reports showed that test series conducted in industrialized countries resulted in an mean error rate of ±18% (North America 20%, Europe 16%, and Australia 19%). By contrast, the mean error rate increased dramatically in fast-growing countries and the developing world (as measured by GDP). For instance, in South America the error rate were 68 out of 100 tests on average and in Asia 58 out of 100.

Noteworthy, the error rate in Germany rose surprisingly from 12% in 2009, 18% in 2008 to now 29% within the last years. The reasons are manifold, e.g. in the social imbalances, which might come from the breakup of social groups or differences in the educational system. In 2010, the PLF will continue their effort to study this phenomenon.

Jubilee Congress reviewed
03.02.2012 - 13:59 von ParaLabs


Yes, it's done - our PLF Jubilee Congress is sadly over. 10 years of scientific research has been recalled and reviewed and many friends, patrons and sponsors gathered for that meeting at the ParaLab facilities.

On Saturday January 3rd 2012 Mr. Mees, co-managing director of the PLF in Central Europe bid his guests welcome. In his speech he paid tribute to all vanguards who expedited the ParaLabs research. His special thanks were given to Mr. Charles van Angeln and Mr. Art Dickerson. Mrs. Loreen Dickerson conveyed a letter from her husband who, unfortunately, was unable to attend owing to a minor car accident just before the congress. Mr. Dickerson, co-founder of the Paralabs Facilities, inspired the audience with his letter in which he remarked on his confidence about the PLF's future by presenting two new patrons: Mr. R. Burghoff and Mr. Evan Elder (Department of Psychiatry, Alfonso General Hospital, Tasonville, CA).

In a few weeks the PLF will start a close cooperation with the AGH to intensify its research in the field of human sense and perception.

The remainder of the evening mold by The Great Kenzini and Mr. Irving Bizarre as its best.

On Sunday and Monday about 500 visitors took part on the guided tours around the ParaLabs facilities.
Normally the area is not publicly accessible. Public interest was so great that the organizers had to arrange for additional guided tours on Monday.

Also the lectures by Mr. Heine, Mrs. Heine and Mr. Hammer were overcrowded first, so the venue was quickly transferred to the PLFs main auditorium.

Because of its enormous success Mr. Fred M. Wonders closed this year’s convention with an announcement – that the PLF congress will now become an annual event.

The next congress will therefore take place on January 8th to 11th 2013.
