Whenever I hear the word "psychic" it does not struck to my mind that it is used to refer to a man of supernatural powers, who can foresee things. I always think of a mental patient or lunatic. Just like "Oh! he is a psychic". So, I am worried why this word "psychic" is being used to refer to a person of future vision. There should be some other name to refer to such extraordinary people, like soothsayer or saint or any other noun.

Thanks for the clarification with examples.
Glad to read your experiences. I also had some experiences of my own with such seers. We refer to them as astrologer, seer, soothsayer, like that.
Thanks for the reply. I am happy to see that I am not totally wrong in associating this word in that other sense. You have cleared my doubts.
But, I used to regard psycho and psychic as synonyms and that is why I feel using this word very embarrassing.
