Transliminality is a hypothesized tendency for psychological material to cross thresholds into or out of consciousness. The 29-item Revised Transliminality Scale was administered to 186 students and members of the general population in Australia and the UK along with the Oxford-Liverpool Inventory of Feelings and Experiences, a multidimensional measure of schizotypy. As predicted, scores on transliminality correlated .78 with those on Unusual Experiences, suggesting that the scales measure the same factor. Transliminality scores also correlated (.18, p = .008) significantly but weakly with scores on Impulsive Nonconformity, as predicted, and weakly (but not predicted) (r = .25, p<.001) with Cognitive Disorganization scores but not with Introvertive Anhedonia or the Lie scale.
