Popis The study examines the prevalence of deja vu in healthy Czech adults and explores its relationships with a number of variables: age, sex, neuroticism, depression, the degree of irritability in the limbic system, perceived stress and finally attachment avoidance and anxiety. The participants were 365 healthy adults ranging from 18 to 70 years recruited in the Czech Republic (mean age=29.05; SD=11.17) who filled out online questionnaires. Deja vu experiences were reported by 324 (88.8%) of them. Persons who experienced deja vu were younger than the persons who had not experienced it. We found that sex, levels of neuroticism, depression, perceived stress, and attachment did not serve as predictors of experiences of deja vu phenomena. Finally, those who had reported deja vu experiences reported more limbic system irritability symptoms. We discuss the possibility that deja vu reports together with other studied variables mainly reflect the participants’ willingness to report “extraordinal” experiences.
