Selective attention to threat bias in delusion-prone individuals

Abstract

The study examined the selective attention to threat bias in delusion-prone individuals recruited from New Religious Movements (NRMs). Twenty-seven delusion-prone NRM individuals were compared with 25 individuals with psychotic disorders and 63 non-delusion-prone individuals on a Stroop task, together with psychotic and delusion proneness measures. NRM individuals showed significantly lower levels of selective attention to threat bias compared with individuals with psychotic disorders but not with non-delusion-prone individuals. Selective attention to threat bias was also not correlated with distress associated with delusional ideation. These findings may be specific to delusion-prone NRM individuals. The absence of the selective attention to threat bias may be related to levels of safety and security among members of NRMs
