The Forer effect (also called personal validation fallacy or the Barnum Effect after P. T. Barnum's observation that "we've got something for everyone") is the observation that individuals will give high accuracy ratings to descriptions of their personality that supposedly are tailored specifically for them, but are in fact vague and general enough to apply to a wide range of people. The Forer effect can provide a partial explanation for the widespread acceptance of some beliefs and practices, such as astrology, fortune telling, and some types of personality tests. A related and more generic phenomenon effect is that of subjective validation. Subjective validation occurs when two unrelated or even random events are perceived to be related because a belief, expectancy, or hypothesis demands a relationship. Thus people seek a correspondence between their perception of their personality and the contents of a horoscope.
Just my two cents. Flame away.
That is the role of the Star Seed in my opinion, to be a catalyst, it would be impossible for them to hold us down, nor are they really trying to, we are not here to separate ourselves with the masses, for if I am one, yet to be determined, I would be here because I love humanity, and that love for humanity has nothing to do with being a Star Seed. We are simply here to remind people of their divine nature and to start respecting themselves before it is too late.

Thanks for posting this. It's funny how I'm reminded that my husband and I communicate through the power of suggestion---telepathically.
I'm here to help the majority and send the rest straight to prison. I'm always right.
