The following chart is a comparative analysis of two Vampire Community News (VCN) polls and the Vampirism & Energy Work Research Study (VEWRS & AVEWRS) conducted by Suscitatio Enterprises, LLC. These data correlations relate to diagnosed physical and mental conditions reported by self-identified real vampires during 2006 to 2014. Sanguinarian and Psychic feeding vampire responses to the VCN polls and VEWRS study indicated no statistically significant differences in condition reporting and have been combined for purposes of this presentation. Please note that the condition options that were provided in these polls do not represent an exhaustive list; only a sampling based on longstanding observational and precedent data. For additional information please refer to the websites and resources linked below.
Please note that ‘Clinical Vampirism’, ‘Autovampirism’, and ‘Renfield’s Syndrome’ do NOT appear in the current Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-IV + TR; 1994/2000) and ‘Vampirism’ will NOT be included in the forthcoming Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-V; 2013) as a mental disorder, listed paraphilia, or under ‘Paraphilias Not Elsewhere Classified’.
If you personally self-identify as a “real vampi(y)re” please take a moment to answer the following question (divided for both Primary Practicing Sanguinarian (Blood Feeding) and Psychic (Energy Feeding) Self-Identified Vampires). If you identify as sexual, pranic, elemental, hybrid, eclectic, adaptive, living, or other identifiers sometimes ascribed to vampirism please choose the the category which best encompasses your primary feeding method: Sanguinarian (blood consumption, physical fluid-blood exchanges, etc.) or Psychic (psi/chi/qi/life energy feeding or manipulation, metaphysical, spiritual, etc.).
VCN POLL CLOSED FEBRUARY 15, 2013 – ANALYSIS BELOW & AT LINK: http://www.suscitatio.com/images/DiagnosedMentalConditionsAmongVampires-VCN+VEWRSAnalysis2013.jpg Note: Sanguinarian and Psychic responses to the VCN poll indicated no statistically significant differences in condition reporting and thus are combined as Total Self-Identified Vampire Response Count (TVC). The same observation was made for the majority of responses to Question 037B (Mental Conditions) of the VEWRS; a sample size three times that of the VCN poll.
