The Phenomenology of Consciousness Inventory (PCI) (Pekala, 1982, 1991b)1 is a retrospective self-report questionnaire completed in reference to a preceding stimulus condition. As with the Phenomenology of Consciousness Questionnaire (PCQ) and the (Abbreviated) Dimensions of Consciousness Questionnaire, (A)DCQ, the PCI permits subjective experience to be phenomenologically quantified in terms of pattern parameters, as Tart (1975) indicates, and intensity parameters, as Singer (cited in Zinberg, 1977), suggests, thus allowing for the phenomenological values associated with a given stimulus condition to be empirically assessed.
