Weird Coincidence Survey Results

By the end of March, 2015 more than 1500 people had visited the site and 200 (13%) had taken the Weird Coincidence Survey. 

57% were women and 43% were men.

Fifty percent of those surveyed were between the ages of 46-65. The following diagram illustrates the age distribution.

AGES of People Who Took WCS


42% ranked themselves high in spirituality—either a 6 or 7 out of 7. Fewer than 20% ranked themselves low on spirituality—1, 2, or 3 as shown in the following diagram.


WCS-spirituality-Apr2015The people who completed the WCS decided to do it. They had time and interest so they are not necessarily representative of everyone who visited the site or the general population.

The next two images summarize the frequencies at which this group rated common coincidences. They were asked to “rate the following statements based on your experience”:

Never=1 | Seldom=2 | Occasionally=3 | Often=4 | Very Frequently=5




The most frequent coincidence was:

I think of an idea and hear or see it on the radio, TV or internet.

The next most frequent were tied:

I think of calling someone, only to have that person unexpectedly call me.

I think of a question only to have it answered by external media (i.e. radio, TV, people) before I can ask it.

I advance in my work/career/education through being in the right place at the right time.
