Are you interested?

She first asked if I was a creative type making unique items and selling them. Then she asked "This is about someone else. isn't it?"
(And I said, "No, madam, it is not.")

From there, she tried to pull it out of her hat.....

kept asking for me to choose another card.....

biding time.

Now I know!!!

I am not shocked in the slightest that it's an act
People who may or may not have ability tend not to do these over produced (in the form of stories of medication etc) acts.

So --- what would you all have asked her?

My question was a metaphysical one. She seemed to me to flounder.
Yet, when I got home I picked up on the Miniature Golf riff.....

You have to remember that it was not her who bragged about being accurate to the point of scaring people. In the OP , you said that you were told about her amazing powers. I think you ought to have a word with the people who told you how good she was.

It is typical "cold reading 101". Anytime I went to a pagan festival, some "tarot reader" would try that stuff on people. I never handed money to them, I don't feed the vermin, and I was able to see they were vermin (If I'd been unsure, I'dve spent some cash to see).

It would have been a question only I knew the answer too, something people would not know looking at me, or quick googling

I agree. I didn't really expect much.....and when I dragged it out until the last possible hour and was treated like a nuisance rather than shown respect and receiving a canned response....

holy wow and hell.

I did better than she did. LOL!!!!

a reply to: BuzzyWigs I have always wanted to visit a psychic or even a hypnotist just to see if any of it was real. because there is no way I am going to be hypnotized by a website or video! but many have said that hypnosis is quite real and effective and I would like to experience that first hand. A psychic would just be cool because if it were real it would unlock a whole motherload of questions and possibilities....but yeah shame you never got your answer

So what she (it was a she right?) was looking for was a micro expression from you when she asked something. When it did not eventuate with the initial question, she fell back to "its something else right?". Hoping you would drop information.

TV psychics (who have not miked the audience with out them knowing) do the "I have a Message from John, does any one know a John?". That is another common tool for fleecing people. Chances are a common name, will be the name of a dead person dear to someone in the audience. They then read how the person appears when they hear the name. Upset? Anxious? Angry? Happy?

I have an open-minded approach to those psychics that I see in festivals.

I will always try one. Not for answers but just to see how good they are. In fact, I see myself as an examiner and them as people sitting an exam.

As I know a bit about fortune-telling , it is an enjoyable experience.

What I have found is that it is generally the less noticeable ones (those wearing ordinary clothes without the new age paraphernalia) who are the better ones. If there are ,say ,10 fortune-tellers in a room, I will spend about half an hour eyeing each one before deciding who to choose. Then I will go to the one who I think is the best.

I think that I generally make a good impression on them. The cards that come up tend to be the very colourful ones (the trump cards or major arcana as they are called) and that gets them excited. There was one woman , I recall, who kept rubbing her hands, forearm and face with oil during the whole sitting for fear of losing the "connection".

Oh, Buzzy, thank you for the posts about your encounter with the "psychic", it took my mind off all the political season crap!

Well, that "reading" was worth $5 for the investigative and entertainment purposes.


Yeah, that putt-putt thing, that's what I mean about your own abilities. It "pops" into your head. Just let it happen and enjoy it. You can block things from popping into your head if you want, it's your choice as to what you want to do.

Heck, I would pay $5 just to sit and talk with you, not just to get any "psychic" readings.
Now, I'm picturing a booth like Lucy in Peanuts, only just one that dispenses fun conversation. lol

Take care and thanks again!

Yeah. It was very disappointing.
sigh

Oh well -- now I know!
And just so everyone understands, my "question" was not about anyone else, nor did it have to do with my 'vocation' and whether or not my endeavors into that vocation would pan out. The question was much bigger than that.

See, that's the thing. I had in mind a question that still has no 'answer'....

no one really knows the answer.
I wasn't going to waste five bucks to see if she knew what twenty divided by five was.......

no. I had a legitimate, deep, metaphysical question.


She should have known. But she didn't.
boo.
