Factors influencing the regularity of meditation practice in a clinical population.

Abstract

Tests were administered to out-patients before learning meditation. High pre-test scores on sensitization, suggestibility, introversion, neuroticism and perceived symptomatology predicted a low practice frequency. Gender, expectations, credibility, locus of control and self-esteem were unrelated to outcome. By two years, 54 per cent had stopped meditating. Meditation appeared to be more rewarding for subjects with milder complaints.
