Mind reading techniques – Can be learned by everyone!
There are different mind reading techniques that can be employed to know what someone is thinking. Experiments can be carried out on participants to know what they are planning or what they are hiding. It is possible to surprise people by playing tricks that seem too real to be doubted. Magicians read the minds of the audience and can tell what trick will shock and surprise them. Some magicians ask a barrage of questions to audience to catch their attention and confuse them on the subject they are talking about. They can also employ mathematical examples that are so obvious; these mind tricks are very efficient because the audience participates in the trick. Magicians can ask the audience to take a piece of paper each and write down a number of questions or numbers, they can then ask to establish a certain unique sequence or an order.
A mind reader can ask a volunteer to go hide somewhere in an enclosed room; this can be done with the help of other participants so as witness that the mind reader is nowhere in sight. After the volunteer hides, the mind reader starts searching. The mind reader may be blindfolded so that one of the participants helps with direction. The mind reader holds the guide participant to direct them to the enclosed room. The mind reader uses their intuitive ability to study movements of the guide. The guide tries to move in the direction that may suggest the volunteers’ hiding position. The mind reader may sense opposition in the guide’s movements hence they can sense the directions not to search. The mind reader is very careful to study every movement until they finally locate the volunteers’ hiding position. This proves to the participants that the mind reader is genius while in real sense it was just a trick.
A magician can shuffle a band of cards and then randomly pick a number handing them to participants. The cards are handed in a way that only the participant will know what the card number and type is; they then ask each participant in turns to ask the magician to identify the card number. The magician looks intently at each participant and studies the facial expression and body language. Since there are only four card types; spade, clubs, hearts and diamonds, the magicians’ choices are limited to four. After looking at every participants and how they hold their cards, he can tell the card. Each card is distinct to the other. He narrows down to each card; and after getting the first two cards right, the participants are astounded by the magician’s ability. The ability to study behavior comes in handy. There are many more mind tricks that can be played.
