Perfect example of how much information we share online. I'll admit that I use Facebook, but I don't put anythign on there that would indicate where I live, what I work as or anything that I deem too personal for social networking. I'v shared this on my facebook, please do the same.

I'm pretty good at cold reading.. it's something I'm just naturally good at .. you can tell a lot about a person through body language.. and beginning with vague questions helps you narrow down to more specifics by simple elimination.

I find it's also useful to remain confident even if you're wrong.. it puts it back on them to think harder about it and they will often make a link to something obscure that you can then take credit for.

Keep in mind I did it for entertainment.. not money.. I never claimed to be a psychic and I always explained it when I was done.. but people truly, firmly believe what you're doing is a legitimate psychic gift.

I haven't done it in years but I can truly see the benefit of scheduling an appointment with someone and then googling them a. of time to get as much intelligence on them as possible and then revealing anything you find in a way that makes it seem like a psychic hit .. if nothing else that could reassure them that you're accurate even if you make a few bad guesses along the way =)

Interesting stuff.. there's still so many people that TRULY believe in it .. and there's yet to be any evidence at all .. I suppose the fact that James Randi has exposed so many through the years and nobody has stepped forward to claim the million dollar reward should say plenty.. "Psychics" fear that sort of thing because they know they cannot stand up to scrutiny.

One man who does interest me, one who is a master of this skill - Derren Brown



He doesnt use facebook, he knows things I can not get my . round. I don;t even knwo what he knows! lol. Please If you have not heard of Derren then please go watch a video. I'd even go to the extent of saying that hes read some kidn of Master Mason/Illuminati book or something, it really is unbelievable what he knows about human instics and our thoughts.

Anyway back to OP: Social networkign sites are now tryign to get more information out of you so that they can direct advertising that you'd actually be interested in. My mum just recently joined facebook and because shes not savy with the net and doesnt look at this whole 'big brother' thing as a public threat, she filled out everything giving specifics that shouldnt be needed. It was like reading a C.v or something, it had everything. But after a few vids and articles of how her information will be shared, she promtly took it down.


Please share the video, theres's allot of people that don't understand the implications of sharing you're information with people who will sell it to the highest bidder.

new he was a fake just by his prose. a mind reader does not ask.. "how is your sore muscle" he knows

a mind reader does not say.. "i see two insects" but cant tell what insects the person tattooed on their own body.

ppl's own naivety to blame for their lack of thinking capacity developments.

how can he get the bank account of one and not get the bank account of another.. considering im certain NEITHER would have their entire bank account number memorized.

if u use ur brain u dont fall for these sort of crap.

I was suspicious while watching the video, I couldn't understand why he needed to wear a mic when the person was only a couple feet away...but then, at the end it made lots of sense,lol!!

The whole concept of the video was a great way to expose how much information is available online on a given individual if they aren't careful with their personal information!

Who cares about facebook? This hits you right where it hurts, brothers. It's a shame that pornsites can no longer be trusted with our credit cards and personal information.

Yup, Derren Brown ROCKS!

I thought at first this was someone else who can do what Derren does, but in the end it really is a clever warning. All the more reason to get back to using cash or something like Paypal when online which hides your banking information from the other person (at least I think that is how it works, I hope it is anyway!!
)

i love Love derren brown. the guy is like magical or something. his shows are amazing and mind boggling!

back to the subject though, im seriously going to check all my Facebook, make sure there's nothing too personal on there, the other day I found out my mobile number(which i had never put on) was on there, i wasn't very impressed!

The sad reality of most regular people nowadays! Glad I'm not on facebook etc and keep things separated. My identity is mine and I will share it with the people that deserve it most, rather than prostituting myself in a non-literal way, to the first stranger that want's to be friends with me.

I do dislike how it tends to also try to explain psychic abilities, though. There are ancient techniques of face-reading, hand-reading, etc. that really tell you a lot about your subject, for example, but showing a guru-type-figure and then unmasking him by showing his trick, seem to tend to discredit it.

Good to share nonetheless!

I agree.. no facebook cheating with him..

living here in America I did not now who Derren Brown was at all..

then I watched a few videos & was amazed..

there is a torrent file out there on the net that has a huge collection of his work..

I think the most remarkable thing is he shatters the notion that a person

will not do anything under hypnosis that the would not regularly do..

ie if your not a killer you could not be programmed to kill..

his show the Experiments,
I think it was, that had a RFK reenactment with the woman in the polka dot dress alone

where the guy shot Steven Fry was jaw dropping

and should have people across the world seriously rethinking

what they believe "programming" can do & the part

it has played in, not only American historical events, but how

these NLP techniques have shaped the world we live in.

I support the industry so our next generations may also enjoy the sweet taste of the forbidden pleasures it has to offer.

Most stuff can be read and suggested. Most stuff can be googled if you know a. of time. Most stuff can be assumed and the recipient can be lead any direction if your clever.

No one has ever been proved to be able to mind read. But many who have been under scrutiny has been disproved.

Shams are everywhere.

What I contend is that so-called "psychic" abilities are simply (when genuine) enhanced ability to pay attention and maybe perceive something (let's call it the universal "field of consciousness" to avoid imposing limiting labels) that "normal" people are not accustomed to perceiving, mostly due to their training. What psychics have done is learned or retained the ability to perceive the field in different, mostly intuitive, ways. There is nothing supernatural about it. In fact I don't believe there IS such a thing as a truly supernatural anything. The word "supernatural" is a label devised to trick egos into believing that such things are outside their grasp and understanding. The truth is, there are great vested interests who desire to keep mankind ignorant of the truth, because mankind's ignorance secures a privileged position in this paradigm for those who would enslave their neighbor.

All contracts are buyer beware, true, but all valid contracts conform to the elements of contract in their entirety. Full disclosure is requisite in order to have a contract. Why is contract important? All existence is by agreement with original ruling principles aside from which life is entirely impossible. We've been testing the boundaries for long enough. It's time to dream of rest for a while, scarcity has had its day.

The truth is not discernible through vivisection of events or doubtful examination under microscope. To the stubborn, the truth presents a blank wall of inscrutability. To the true skeptic, the truth offers evidence.

"You ain't gonna learn what you don't wanna know." -John Barlow

ETA: To those who carp that belief in the ordinarily imperceptible is a retreat into the womb of ignorance, I offer the opportunity of a repeatable ineffable experience that consistently provide a high level of certainty that "normal waking consciousness" is not optimized for the spiritual development of humans. PM if interested.
