What do the figures and graphs mean?

The results of the MISS might be overwhelming, so you may want to focus only on the most important information. For instance, the app calculates the difference between pre and post-equanimity for a particular characteristic, such as Mass or Temperature, but you may only be interested in the overall result that reflects your ability to remain equanimous with an intense sensation for 30 seconds.

The first figure shows the percentage of change in sensation specificity and intensity after your 30-second exposure to an intense body sensation with equanimity. Statistically speaking, this is called the “change score” using a “weighted distribution”. This means that the amount of change at a higher initial level of distress will be calculated with a higher percentage of change than the same amount of change with a lower initial level of distress. This is because it takes more effort and equanimity to allow change with a higher level of distress.

If you tap the right arrow above the Percentage of Change graph, you’ll see the difference in Mass after your 30-second exposure to an intense body sensation with equanimity. This graph displays the “raw data”.

Tap through with the right arrow again, and you’ll see the difference in Temperature, Motion and Fluidity after your 30-second exposure to an intense body sensation with equanimity.

You can track your overall progress by tapping View Progress below any of the graphs. This will display the percentage of change for both the Specificity and the Intensity scales.

All your other results for each measurement are also displayed below the graph. Please scroll down to see them all.

If you want to remove any result set, swipe it to the left and tap the trash can icon. This will also remove it from the progress graph.
