Maladaptive Daydreaming: where wild minds come to rest
We now wish to shed light on a non-distressful variant of immersive daydreaming.
We aim to study how daydreaming is related to emotional understanding and creativity and also how do immersive (but not distressed or maladaptive) daydreamers differ from maladaptive daydreamers. Your participation could help to identify the potential benefits of immersive daydreaming and contribute to developing strategies for managing maladaptive daydreaming.
We are looking for participants to contribute to this research. The only requirements are that you are a fluent speaker of English and over 18 years of age. If you would like to help, we ask that you complete an online multiple-choice survey which will take approximately 20 minutes. Your responses will be anonymous, and we do not ask for any detailed information about the content of your daydreams.
We would like to compare your answers to those who do not experience immersive daydreams. If possible, please share the survey with any family or friends who might also be eligible and willing to participate.
The survey is available here: https://uqpsych.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_5vjTG9HwrxljEQl
If you have any questions, you may contact the primary researcher Melina (firstname.lastname@example.org).
