Read up on something called “Cold reading”, it’s something that frauds masquerading as psychics have been doing for generations. They’ll create open ended questions, or wait for the person to provide information even if it’s just in the form of a smile or frown. It’s whatever they need to make it look as if they know.
For example, a psychic will say something like, “I see an older gentleman standing off to your right. He looks kindly at you.” Then wait for the mark to respond with something like, “my grandfather just passed away” and the psychic will then say something like, “yes, he’s saying he’s your grandfather” and so on.
The mark will walk away thinking that the psychic actually made contact with their deceased grandfather when in reality it was the mark that provided that information.
In the end, it’s up to you if you want to believe it or not. Personally I say it’s a scam and you’re better off spending your money elsewhere.
Can a psychic really predict the future of a human?
Answer by strikebf
No. It’s not possible, and if it was, everyone would be able to do it. There aren’t many skills a human can attain that another one can’t.
And also, how could you see into the future without it having already happened? Seriously.

Yes there are, and it depends. The talent comes and goes. Especially if it is an unused talent. It is like working any muscle. The more you use it, the more it come easier to you, the more you are accurate.

Since the dawn of civilization humans have been fascinated by phenomena which appear to lie outside the scope of science. Our history is peppered with accounts of psychics predicting the future, mediums conversing with the dead, and aliens in UFO’s abducting earthlings. Today the likes of Deepak Chopra confuse people with their quantum psychobabble and there is widespread belief that the moon and planets influence our behavior, that “psychic surgeons” can remove tumors without making incisions and that Uri Geller bends spoons with the power of his mind. .Do these effects really lie outside the scope of modern day science? This lecture examines paranormal phenomena and describes how many of the effects can be explained by perfectly “natural” means. The presentation is highlighted by a number of “demonstrations” aimed at increasing the awareness of the need to evaluate “paranormal” phenomena by critical scientific methods.
