A questionnaire containing the suicides facts inventory & a test of irrational thinking was administered to 133 undergraduates. The total score on the suicide facts inventory was significantly correlated with scores on the test of irrational thinking, which indicates that the more accurate the information about suicide the less irrational thinking by the respondent. Results suggest that those who have less accurate knowlege about suicide tend to engage in more irrational thinking in general.
