VAUGHAN, A., & HOUCK, J. (2000). Intuition-training software: A second pilot study. Journal of the Society for Psychical Research, 64, 177-184.

We hypothesized that software offering a precognition test with weighted feedback--the closer to the target, the higher the score--would enable average people to train themselves in intuitive skills. Twelve subjects together improve at the 0.05 level. Overall scoring is significant at the 0.01 level. Seven out of 12 subjects show improvement, with 3 subjects attaining significance, 2 at the .01 level. Two subjects achieve overall significant scoring, including 1 who also showed significant improvement. The odds against chance for his dual performances are over 3,000 to 1. Six subjects achieve both improvement and positive overall scoring. Over 30,000 additional subjects would need to be tested to dilute the 12 subjects' dual performances to chance.
