  5. Trance will be related to possession 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.

  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.

  10. Social stratification, jurisdictional hierarchy, economic production, and use of agriculture will be associated with trance type (199-200, 205).Bourguignon, Erika - Altered states of consciousness within a general evolutionary perspective: a..., 1977 - 5 Variables

    This article investigates a cultural patterning of altered states of consciousness. The authors use an ordinal variable for a society's trance type; its four levels are 1) trance, 2) trance and possession trance, 3) possession trance, and 4) neither type. Results suggest that trance type is associated with measures of societal complexity and subsistence economy. Regional differences and the effects of diffusion are also examined.
