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.
