Can psychics see the future?

Tricks of the trade: these are some of the techniques used by psychics.

Here are four typical tricks

1. Something psychics always do is say something that's true of almost anyone on the planet, preferably something positive. An all-time favourite is “You're intelligent with a great sense of humour”. Who is going to answer, “Well actually, I'm not. I’m really stupid and have no sense of humour at all”?

2. Statistics confirm that a headache is the most common female health problem and almost 50% of men have a scar on their leg, so it's not really surprising when a psychic 'sees' these problems.

3. A psychic can deduce a lot from your age and appearance, and most of them actually ask direct questions. It's difficult to avoid answering if you want results, because saying nothing is like going to the doctor and refusing to discuss your symptoms.

4. Coming up with a few names is always impressive. The usual method is to let the client work out who it might be. “Does the letter 's' mean anything to you?” is a frequent strategy.
