Are all psychics real….or are some just "pretend"?
Are there easy ways to spot the frauds and fakes from the real thing? And if so….HOW so? In this article we are going to take a quick and insightful look at how to spot a phony psychic….and what to do, when you do! Care to know more? Great….continue reading as we take a closer look below!
Phony Psychic Sign #1: A Focus on the Foolish
Want to know the truth? A good psychic won’t talk to you about candles, curses, healing’s or hexes. They just won’t! While some psychics I know DO believe in the "esoteric arts" (as much of this stuff is known) believe it or not……most really DON’T! There is good energy in the world….and there is BAD energy in the world.
A good psychic understands that to dive into the wide and weird world of "magic" is NOT necessary to help their clients overcome just about any problem or life confusion using simple natural "god given" psychic and intuitive abilities.
The mention of using "magical" tools or spells is usually a sign a psychic is setting the stage to charge you for something extra….and is unfortunately one of the biggest, and longest running psychic scams around. (when you see this start running the other way for sure!)
Phony Psychic Sign #2: Cold Reading Techniques
Cold reading is one of the most controversial "claims" in the whole psychic universe. Why? Because while there are in fact many cold readers, many GOOD (and great!) psychics can get "tarred" with the same brush.
What do I mean? Cold reading is simple, old fashioned guessing, body language reading, and other forms of manipulation that is actually pretty easy to spot if you are paying attention. An easy example to spot? Asking lots of leading questions. (i.e. – "you have an interesting accent…are you from the East Coast…..?") The truth is, a GOOD psychic will be conversational, but will NOT ask you to answer lots of difficult questions.
They SHOULD instead ask you to predominately answer "yes or no"….and if you’ve got a psychic reader who is trying to guess some things about you that they SHOULD really know if genuinely psychic….we recommend you thank them for their time and head for the door in a jiff! (or better yet…..simply hang up the phone and call someone else!)
