Reality Inversion: When Mediated Experience is More Real Than Direct Experience

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

There are many phenomena people only learn about through the media. When direct experience suddenly becomes available there is a transition of experiential states. At such a point reality inversion may occur, a feeling that the mediated world is somehow more real than direct experience. A sample of 209 adults were asked about their first visit to United States of America. A reality inversion scale was proposed which contained items such as “The first time I arrived in the United States I was surprised to see how many things were as I had expected” (49.5 % agreement) or “everything often made me think of TV” (45.3 % agreement). Only 84.2% did not report any reality inversion. Gender, level of education and age did not correlate with the reality inversion scale, but there was a curvilinear relationship with the number of American TV shows viewed.
