The effects of psychological analysis suggests that creativity is important factor on mystical experience especially on creative persons (higher intensification of creativity increase mystical experiences on tree aspects ofmysticism: timelessness p=0,001, inner subjectivity p=0,015, ineffability p=0,0 43) and on women (four aspects of mysticism: timelessness p=0,001, inner subjectivity p=0,017, ineffability p=0,036, positive affect p=0,049).
