This study examines the association between mystical experience, as captured by the Francis–Louden Mystical Orientation Scale, and psychological health, as captured by the Eysenckian threedimensional model of personality, among 329 students attending a state university in Turkey. The data reported no significant association between mystical orientation and psychoticism scores, and a small but significant positive association between mystical orientation and neuroticism scores, after controlling for sex differences. This finding suggests that there may be a small inverse association between mystical experience and psychological health among students in Turkey.
