Past research has indicated that dissociation and schizotypy are highly correlated (Merckelbach & Giesbrecht, 2006; Watson, 2001). Although somewhat controversial, some research has suggested that dissociation and schizotypy traits constitute a unique personality domain often referred to as "oddity" (Watson, Clark, & Chmielewski, 2008). Past research has provided evidence for a relationship between these oddity facets and unusual sleep experiences, such as narcolepsy symptoms and nightmares (Koffel & Watson, 2009). It has been suggested that "unusual cognitive and perceptual experiences" may be the common theme that connects these concepts (Watson, 2001). In addition to the connection between oddity and sleep experiences, some studies have examined the influence of sleep disturbance, namely insomnia, on emotion regulation (Palmer & Alfano, 2017). The relationship between emotion regulation and unusual sleep disturbances is an area that has yet to be explored in the existing literature. Furthermore, studies concerning the relationship between emotion regulation and oddity are scarce. Lastly, how oddity, emotion regulation, and unusual sleep disturbances relate to one another has yet to be defined. This study found that unusual sleep disturbances and dissociation / schizotypy had a significant relationship with suppression. Overall, this study adds to the existing literature by building a foundation for future researchers concerning the relationships between these variables.
