Prove skeptics wrong

It's mysterious, it's captivating, it's incredible.

Psychic ability is something that is craved by some and doubted by many. The ability to predict and understand things most of the population can't get a good grasp on is tricky and hard for a lot of people to believe.

The desire for many to possess this power and use it for advantageous purposes has lead to the creation and development of articles, books and tests with the purpose of discovering and developing psychic abilities within oneself as well as testing those who claim to have them.

Read the information on this page, visit different links online and watch videos to figure out for yourself if you are psychic, how to develop such powers, or if you even should become more involved in the movement.

Psychic ability can be very powerful, but it's not for everyone, so make sure to investigate it thoroughly and understand it before taking on something bigger than you know.

Deeper insights into psychic ability

Are you psychic?

Psychic ability can prove to be a helpful and inspiring asset in one’s life. If you’re not sure if you have access to the benefits of psychic abilities, there are several tests one can take to find out.

Multiple-choice tests: Experts may design tests that ask personal questions about topics such as how you sleep, how you play board games and how you gaze at clouds. These usually only scrape the surface of diagnoses, allowing one to recognize they may have abilities but not affirming it directly, thus making for unsatisfied test-takers.

Symbol tests/Zenner cards: Sometimes psychic abilities will be tested based on how well one does at predicting what will “come up” or be chosen at what time. Cards with symbols on them, like shape cards or color cards, are spread out, often a few at a time. Someone will mentally choose one and someone is asked which card the tester has picked. Several rounds or trials may be performed and, based on the way the exercise is set up, a certain number of correct answers may indicate one’s psychic abilities.

Psychologist Zenner developed this method of prediction. The psychic test cards are not only used to measure the intuitive and telepathic powers of the students, they also provide training and practice in the development of psychic abilities.

Based on an algorithm by Dr. Rhine (the number of guesses made, the correct number guessed and the percentage of correct responses), psychic ability can be predicted as follows:

  • Under 1.96 = No psychic ability
  • 1.96 to 2.58= Some psychic ability
  • 2.58 to 3.00= Significant psychic ability.
  • Over 3.00= Very significant psychic ability

Test-takers are encouraged to relax their minds beforehand; stress can impede one’s guessing ability.

Psychic Psi game: The 23rd letter of the Greek alphabet is psi, used in parapsychology with extrasensory perception and psychokinesis. The game includes little boxes or other containers holding answers to a question. The answers cover a broad range. Someone chooses a box for their answer and they may predict which box holds the correct answer (if there is one). This game is mostly considered fun and not scientifically proven.

Another variation of this game is the cup and ball game in which someone is asked to predict/guess which cup the ball is in or under.

Psychic readings: Experts may provide insight into your psychic abilities. There are readers available online, by telephone or streetside.

Classes: Attending a course related to psychic ability may reveal one’s faculties. There are also CD-ROMs which may provide answers as well as help develop abilities.

“The Other Side:” People may test others for psychic ability by asking questions about friends or loved ones who have passed on. Many may claim they can speak to passed spirits and may make claims that are false or fabricated.

People may only have psychic abilities for certain areas, like finding missing people or predicting future events.

Many sources will say that everyone has some psychic abilities and they can be honed into full-blown faculties that can be used professionally. Use this as encouragement; even if a test may not give the results you expect or hope for, don’t lose hope because there are a variety of ways one can develop psychic abilities (see below text and links).
