Fantasy proneness in secular contexts
2016 (English)Conference paper, Oral presentation with published abstract (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

In this empirical paper, I present the reasoning in a subgroup of so-called 'fantasizers', derived from an study conducted in Sweden. The switching between the paramount (i.e. everyday) reality and the fantastic (i.e. imaginary) reality is described as a "willing suspension of disbelief". I do however not argue that this is a specific phenomenon related to autism, but suggest that certain individuals with and without autism are specifically fantasy prone. The category of fantasy prone individuals contributes to raising questions on experiences and psychological consequences of living in cultural contexts where secularity is part of predominant norms.
