Dr. Eric Carlson, a member of the F-A-C-T skeptics group that has been involved with Anita's, ahem, "study" registered here and posted in our discussion forums. He reported on the results of Anita's study. Remember, folks, this is only a study so that she can learn more about her abilities. The you know, the ones where she has "apparent accuracy" that is so good she thinks she's never been wrong.
There were three controls in the study and Anita. They all did "readings" for the participants. One control did quite poorly. Anita and the other two did better than the this one control, who, in the opinion of Dr. Carlson, employed a poor strategy. Of the remaining three, Anita fared the worst. Of course, with the ridiculous scoring system she devised, it is hard to say if statistically she did significantly worse.
I think Dr. Carslon said it best when he reported, "It is clear from this study that VFF has not yet found any ability which is worthy of devising a full-scale test."
