What are Psychics?
March 10, 1979, Leningrad. Soviet housewife Nina Kulagina is being studied by scientists after years of claiming she posses psychic abilities. Old black and white films had been released of the woman in laboratories appearing to move objects with her mind, including supposedly breaking two eggs floating in water in half without touching them. Scientists wonder if her abilities extend to living organisms and seat her in front of a frog in water. They witness her focus intently, slowing and speeding the amphibian’s heart rate with her mind. She eventually stops it altogether.
This incident is one of the most famous and debated incidents of psychic phenomena in history. Magicians and theorists have argued that many of Kulagina’s feats could have easily been pulled off using traditional sleight of hand, and the uncontrolled environments (such as hotel rooms) leave a lot of deceit. But psychics rarely claim to be capable of Kulagina’s fantastical abilities. Often, they’re much more commonplace.
Virtually every society has been fascinated by psychic phenomena. While the scientific consensus is that there is no proof of the existence of such powers, you’ll find believers all over the world. Be it carnival barkers, mediums, tarot card readers or some other form of psychic ability extrasensory perception has captured the imagination of everyone. While there are numerous cases in which the psychic was proven to be a charlatan or simply a sideshow, others defy scientific explanation.
And there are hundreds in search of various kinds of psychic connection to this day. When doing so, it’s important to know how to spot a scam and what kind of psychic you’re looking for. For convenience, I have assembled a helpful guide of the best in their field.
Psychics Vs. Mediums
There exist many different kinds of ESP, so it’s first important to differentiate.
A psychic is known as an individual with abilities beyond the normal five senses that are as of now scientifically inexplicable. Often they claim to have clairvoyance, telepathy or like Kulagina the ability to manipulate objects in ways that defy natural laws. While it’s still considered a pseudoscience, many firmly believe both in their own abilities and those of others.

A medium, on the other hand, is a much more specific field in which a person claims to have the ability to speak to the dead. They accomplish this by channeling spirits or, in some cases, using a Ouija board or other purported mystical objects.

Fiction Vs. Fact
The psychic has always been a popular television and film character, primarily because their dramatic arc is fairly straightforward. Usually, a film will follow someone with ESP who has lost his or her faith until an inciting incident forces them back into believing. They are portrayed now as working stiffs with bills to pay. This can be considered a major improvement on how society viewed psychics in the past – associating their gifts with witchery, evil gypsy stereotypes or other negative occult taboos.
One of the major landmarks In psychics in film is the Academy Award-winning The Sixth Sense. After the film’s success, a slew of imitators and TV shows spread like wildfire. It’s refreshing to see the psychic portrayed as an everyman rather than a creature capable of damning the protagonist with spells or, at the very least, con games. It’s also more accurate.
How to Avoid a Scam
As is the case with any pseudoscience, there are plenty of con men ready to take advantage of the gullible. Don’t make the same mistakes I did when you’re early in your search. Playwright David Mamet and magician Ricky Jay often spoke of the many ways con men operate, and phony psychics employ the same techniques. The goal of any con man is return business, bleeding their victims dry of money before heading onto their next venture. The most common technique is known as “cold reading.” A phony may say, for instance, that you’ve recently lost someone in your life. And this is more often than not the case. Be on the lookout for broad generalized statements that could be true of anyone.
I once encountered a con man using a technique during a psychic reading known as “the curse removal”. The concept behind this old con is for the psychic to gather more and more information about you with each reading, so by the fifth or sixth reading, his or her guesses are beyond educated. After they think they have your trust, they tell you they feel you have a curse upon you. This curse is responsible for your lack of success in whatever you’re asking them about, and removing it with their help is ironically going to cost you a lot more than just putting hard work into it.
There are many other scams common in the psychic world, which I’ll go over in detail.
