The present study aimed to explore the relationship between a number of psychological variables and a reported sense of presence in Immersive Virtual Reality (IVR). It was hypothesised that participants’ scores on measures of absorption, dissociation, and external locus of control would be positively and significantly correlated with a measure of their sense of presence in IVR. A total of 64 people took part. Significant correlations were found between Presence and Dissociation (r=.403, p<0.01), and Presence and Locus of Control (r=.268, p<0.05). However, the correlation between Presence and Absorption was not significant (r=-.037, p=.386). The findings reported here suggest a complex interrelationship of psychological variables in relation to Presence in IVR that warrants further research.
