many ways to "test" psychic ability or psychic
power, however most tests rely on statistical analysis to
prove that a person has psychic ability.
a simple psychic test is to blindfold the person to be tested
and have them predict the turn of a card. There is a known number
of possibilities for the cards and typically a person will guess
some of them right. Statistically there will be an average number
of correct "guesses" and therefore testing a person
with psychic abilities should produce results which are greater
than this figure.
It is unlikely
that a psychic will predict every card successfully but depending
upon their particular abilities, they should be able to do far
better than "average".
tests are often more subjective - testing a psychic through
the process of them doing a psychic
depends on a subjective evaluation of the reading outcome. When
the reading is predicting the future in some way, then it is
not possible to evaluate the reading until the events take place
doing the testing also influences the outcome of the reading.
In order for a true psychic connection, the tester needs to
be open and allow the reader to make a psychic connection. It
is very difficult to read for a person who does not give permission
to the reader for the connection to be made. Whether they are
in the same physical place or not.
ability does not need the person to be present, but if they
are then the demeanour and behaviour of the tester may influence
the reading. A person who is sceptical will get a different
outcome to someone who believes it is possible to psychically
connect. The outcome from this type of testing is therefore
