The meta-analysis aims to detect telepathy’s effect in the extrasensory perception (ESP) experiments in the last 20 years. Seven articles were chosen from psycho INFOR, and an extra two were found from a summary table for telepathy experiments in one selected paper. In these studies, the difference between the observed hit rates and the expected one represented the impact of telepathy. These papers included 16 experiments, and their data were collected to calculate their effect size. The weighted effect size was the original one multiplied by the proportion of trials. The overall effect size summed the weighted effect sizes and got 0.091. The small effect size illustrates that the effect brought by telepathy on participants’ performance obtained from these experiments is very small.
