This essay presents the central results of a representative survey carried out by the Institute for Frontier Areas of Psychology and Mental Health at Freiburg/Germany. We report both qualitative results and descriptive statistics based on a sample of over 1500 residents of the Federal Republic of Germany who were questioned about their attitude towards exceptional experiences. Surprisingly, large parts of the German population are quite open-minded about exceptional experiences, and more than half of the respondents even report such experiences personally. It is conspicuous that both the belief in exceptional experiences and personal accounts of such experiences refer over-abundantly to young people. In a follow-up interview more than 200 subjects were questioned, this time in detail, about their personal experiences. There are clear indications that revealing personal experiences is mostly not seen as problematic.
