If we examine how much money psychics are drawing in each year, we would need to compare them with Hollywood stars.

How do psychics fool so many? Here are a few ways.

  • Cold Reading , They suggest universal characteristics and wait for a response
  • Flooding, They give all sort of non sense and hope the unsuspecting subject will stick and identify with parts of it
  • They priase their alleged successes and hope you aren't keeping track of their mistakes

I have a friend who believes everything. He's susceptible to any and all suggestions unless it's main stream science. He thinks the X Files was a documentary. I have tried explaining to him all about reasons, above, for his beliefs but that falls under "science" so he doesn't believe me. Sigh...
