If we accept the importance of the 6th sense in developing human community, we have to study the variables that may affect it, that may develop or control this frontier human ability. The current study tries to survey some personal and social variables that may affect this sense. These variables are: gender, age, country, educational level, monthly income, marital status, one hygiene, hobbies, personality type, one heredity of the sixth sense, one superior sense (the best sense) of the 5 ordinary senses, one case during 6th sense experience and day time during 6th sense experience. The author uses descriptive method on an intended sample, which experience 6th sense. By applying a criterion measure consists of these previous variables. Results showed that there are significant effects among the study variables, with empathies on early childhood importance in discovering and educating this frontier ability.
