Cold Reading

by Vidya Sury July 9, 2008 0 comment

Cold reading is a technique often used by mentalists,
fortune tellers, psychics, and mediums to determine
details about another person in order to convince
them that the reader knows much more about a
subject than he or she actually does. Even without
prior knowledge of a person, a practiced cold reader
can still quickly obtain a great deal of information
about the subject by carefully analyzing the person’s
body language, clothing or fashion, hairstyle, gender,
sexual orientation, religion, race or ethnicity, level of,
education, manner of speech, place of origin, etc.

Cold readers commonly employ high probability
guesses about the subject, quickly picking up on
signals from their subjects as to whether their
guesses are in the right direction or not, and then
emphasizing and reinforcing any chance connections
the subjects acknowledge while quickly moving on
from missed guesses.

How much would a skill like that help you? Can
you imagine the possibilities? Dating, business,
persuasion – cold reading opens up a whole
new world….
