How traits relate to spatial presence

As a subjective experience, Spatial Presence is supposed to vary greatly with individual dispositions. MEC has addressed this question in a theoretical review and several empirical studies that were dedicated to a measurement of the influence of the "big 5" personality traits on Spatial Presence. More than 100 subjects participated in the studies. As a major result it turns out that people with a high "openness for new experiences" are more prone to experience Spatial Presence.
