  1. Controlling for sustenance from hunting and fishing, the number of jurisdictional levels will be related to trance (270).Swanson, Guy E. - Trance and possession: studies of charismatic influence, 1978 - 3 Variables

    This study examines correlates of trance and possession in pre-industrial societies. Results suggest that the presence of trance/possession is associated with subsistence, number of jurisdictional levels, and community decision-making.

  4. Possession belief will be related to trance types (13).Bourguignon, Erika - A cross-cultural study of dissociational states, 1968 - 2 Variables

    The expressed purpose of the present publication is to provide a typology of institutionalized dissociational states on a world-wide basis, using biological, situational, and cultural parameters. The study is comprised of field work, literature review, ethnographic research, and cross-cultural statistical analysis. The researchers use these findings to aid in the construction of cross-cultural theory, and to provide a platform for further work on dissociational states to continue.

  7. The prevalence of possession trance is correlated with measures of social complexity, rigidity, and separation in gender participation.Rácz, Péter - Possession trance covaries with measures of social rigidity in the Ethnograp..., 2023 - 5 Variables

    Anthropologists have claimed that possession trance– an altered state of consciousness from spirit possession– is a psychosocial phenomenon. In particular, they argue that it is related to levels of social complexity, rigidity, and separation in gender participation. The author tests this claim through Bayesian hierarchical generalized linear models and phylogenetic comparative methods, but finds that possession trance is only correlated with social complexity and rigidity, not separation in gender participation.

  8. There will be a relationship between the presence of tremors/convulsions and trance states, particularly possessionWinkelman, Michael James - Trance states: a theoretical model and cross-cultural analysis, 1986 - 2 Variables

    This article offers a detailed analysis of neuropsychopsiological processes involved in altered states of consciousness (ASC) in order to design and evaluate a psychophysiological model of trance states. Cross-cultural hypotheses concerning ASC are tested.

  9. Societies with slavery and/or stratification will be more likely to have possession trance (50).Greenbaum, Lenora - Societal correlates of possession trance in sub-saharan africa, 1973 - 3 Variables

    This study examines correlates of possession trance among cultures in sub-Saharan Africa. Several variables were tested (including community organization, marriage form, family form, and settlement pattern) but only a few were related to possession trance. Results indicate that the presence of slavery, stratification, and role and structure differentiation are significantly associated with possession trance.
