    My dad once got a free palm-reading session. The psychic did a cold reading and asked him for details. All my dad said was: "Why do I have to tell you? Isn't your job to get that information from my palm?"And then the psychic was suddenly unable to read palms for his session.My dad wasn't fooled, but his coworker left moved and was crying after the session. It's really sad to see people fooled out of their money like this.

    Some people just need to hear shit and heal in their own way. Some people can’t afford therapy. Sometimes they just want someone to just listen.

    .I got free reading, I want prove so I said what is my name and she said "it doesn't work like that." Anther one that did for free was something personal but long story short he said "I have to change myself for best out come" I didn't believe it and seems like I was right. :)

    So if a midget psychic was in trouble with the law, would that make him a small medium at large?

    Personally, I believe in mediums. I went to one and she told me I was going to die. That was about 6 years ago, but I totally still believe her. I am going to die. It runs in my family. My great grandfather and my grandfather both died. There is NO WAY she could have known that.

    Joe Shopper anecdotal evidence is the foundation of science and proof !!! Obviously you’re perceived experience supersedes reality!

    The title saying "fake psychics" unintentionally implies there are real psychics.

    @MInd Remote "Prove that real psychics don't exist"That's calling proving a negative and that's impossible, you dingus. No, it's your job alone to prove that you have supernatural powers, not my job to disprove you don't. Especially when it's something that has never been scientifically documented.

    Psychics aren't real. If you think they are real, you're an idiot.

    "Fake" in "fake psychics" is redundant.

    @Mary Watkins Mary, for fucks sakes darling, it's literally a carnival trick called "cold reading". Look it up. Do you know how fucking easy it is to cold read someone you already know? Actually I'm gonna correct myself here and say that if he was your boyfriend, he didn't even need to cold read you and went straight to hot reading.It's quite literally a trainable skill that many magicians and mentalists do. The best mentalists in the world are infinitely better at this than famous psychic...

    Mary Watkins Yeah, my friend’s dad is very sensitive to spirits but I understand why some people wouldn’t believe it. It’s very hard to unless you see it yourself. And there are a lot of fakes out there. My friend’s dad doesn’t like to share that fact about him because most people don’t believe it so why bother, but my friend told me and I had some things happen to me that I can’t really explain. From talking to him and watching his expressions and gestures I can tell he’s not faking it. It’s fascinating.
