I am not, so >therefore, I have no access to the first citation. Right, didn't have time to search but it's a long-established paper and probably available elsewhere. Even so, the abstract - "Ss accepting the theoretical possibility of ESP and Ss rejecting this possibility were compared in respect to levels of scoring in guessing concealed symbols prepared by random numbers. In each of six extensive series of such tests those accepting this theoretical possibility scored higher than the others; the P of the overall difference being due to 'chance' is .00003. Personality factors relating to scoring success are discussed" - was enough for me, as I don't think a discussion of personality factors would change that quantitative conclusion.
