    The studies are dealing with normal variation in temperament, particularly in the area of how secure people feel. As another example, studies of people who believe they were abducted by aliens show that they have no more psychopathology than the general public, but they do tend to have certain personality traits, such as being prone to fantasizing.

      that believing your fantasies are real suggests some psychopathology afoot. May not present much of an issue in people's ability to do housework or alphabetize file folders, etc., and may not present a notable danger to self or others. But when I fantasize about playing disc golf on Mars or serving 'mater pie to the Queen, they're not things I'd assert under oath, swear to friends and family really happened, or volunteer to take a lie detector test about... ;-)
