The Mentalist - Learn How To Be A Real Life Patrick Jane

Updated on August 5, 2013

The Mentalist - Patrick Jane (Simon Baker)

The Mentalist is a successful crime television series, starring Simon Baker (Patrick Jane), Robin Tunney (Teresa Lisbon), Owain Yeoman (Wayne Rigsby), Tim Kang (Kimball Cho) & Amanda Righetti (Grace Van Pelt).

Patrick Jane is an independent consultant working for/with the CBI (California Bureau of Investigation), who uses his previous skills as a "psychic medium" to help solve cases. Although he does assist with solving a great deal of cases, his motivation is to try to catch the serial killer Red John, who murdered his wife and daughter.

The majority of Patrick Jane's "mentalist" skils are based on hypnosis or the illusion of psychic abilities - this site will provide details with how you can also learn the skills to become a real life mentalist.

Definition Of A Mentalist

A Mentalist is a person who uses the art of mentalism i.e using mental and/or intuitive abilities.

These abilities include cold/hot reading, telepathy, clairvoyance, pschokinesis, mind control/hypnosis.

Below you will find a selection of links, which will help you to learn these abilities and become a real life mentalist.

I hope that you find this site useful!

Mentalist Training - Body Language - Understanding Body Language

To be a good mentalist like Patrick Jane, you need to be able to read people's body language.

By having a good understanding of body language, you will be able to tell when someone is feeling anxious, nervous, happy, sad or you will be able to tell when they are lying to you.

Below are a good selection of videos to help you learn what to look for.

Mentalist Training - Telekinesis

Test Your Telekinetic Abilities

Now that you have mastered the art of reading body language - now it's time to flex your brain power and try to master the art of telekinesis.

Telekinesis is the ability to move items/objects with the power of the mind (think of the film Carrie).

Faking It - Psychic Abilities - Faking The Abilities

If you have not been able to master real psychic or telekinesis abilities, then check out these videos.

After watching the "ability" being performed, at the end of each video it reveals how the abilities are performed.

If you are able to give someone the illusion of power, this can be every bit as powerful as having the ability for real.

Faking It - PSI Wheel

Learn Hypnosis

I've had several people asking for further information on how to learn hypnosis, so I decided to add a new module specifically related to learning aids.

The conversational hypnosis course advertised in the module above, is more advanced, so it might be worthwhile investing in a couple of books to learn the basics to see how you feel and whether you want to take the learning any further. If after learning the basics, you are still interested in further developing your skills or you want to further expand your knowledge, then you may wish to invest in the conversational hypnosis course.

      Hi!

      I really LOOOVE the mentalist.

      I'd like Jane and Lisbon to

      get togheter but as Jane

      said in one of the episodes

      (don't remember wich one)

      he said that if you find a box

      without knowing what's inside,

      it is not exiting to know what's inside,

      the most funny is the exitement about not knowing. It's the same about Jisbon,

      it's exiting to sit in front o the TV

      looking at the mentalist waiting for a

      kiss but if that would happen,

      it wouldn't be so exiting anymore...

      @anonymous: Hi There!

      Thank you for your kind comments, if you are interested in learning about how to become a Mentalist, I think it would probably be best to learn about body language first, which will automatically give you the basic knowledge to then adapt and refine the cold reading technique.

      Good luck with your learning!

      @anonymous: Hi Victoria - I am so sorry that I did not see your message on my lens earlier, I must have missed the Squidoo alert...

      With regards to your question, I think that there is so much we do not understand about the human brain, that I would be quite naïve to dismiss ESP as being real. I do believe that there are some people who have a genuine ability - but I also realise that there are some people who pretend that they have the ability to manipulate and take advantage of unsuspecting individuals.

      I would be really interested to learn what you have discovered in your research...

      @anonymous: Hi Marcello,

      The hypnosis course that is linked to this site is extremely comprehensive, but it's not easy... I've been studying various books, courses and websites to try and learn the art of hypnosis - but it's definitely a case of practice, practice, practice and it's not something that can be picked up overnight (I'm afraid to say).

      I recommended the course linked to this site as it's what I started to learn from (and covers a vast array of hypnotic material) - but I believe that you can search on Amazon and find hypnosis books for all levels of experience.

      I think that I will add another module from Amazon dedicated just to hypnosis books - I hope that this helps answer your question.

      Hello, were you able to understand the technique of hypnosis? The page attached to your comment about this trick is a little heavy -.-. Can you give me an explanation, too simple, or another source?

      @anonymous: Hi Mark,

      You would be quite surprised how quickly you can pick up tips and techniques about reading people. Whilst I cannot claim to be as good as Derren Brown - I can read body language quite easily now.

      It's especially useful if you apply the use of body language when attending meetings or interviews. You can suss out who is going to be most difficult to win over or people who share the same beliefs/interests and who will be an ally to you.

      Thank you so much for visiting my lens!

      Best wishes

      Olivia

      @anonymous: Hi Jack,

      Sorry for not replying sooner, I've had problems with squidoo where it would not let me reply to you...

      In answer to your question - yes I have used some of the techniques detailed in my lens. I am quite good at reading people and I'm especially adept at spotting when someone is spinning me a line... it's quite interesting.

      Thank you so much for your feedback on my lens, I really appreciate it.

      Cheers

      Olivia

      I enjoy the Mentalist, Darren Brown a the few others that do this work. Because there are so few, I tend to believe that it is something terribly difficult and requires many years of training oneself.

      I love The Mentalist and am fascinated by the skills he uses (even though it's only make believe).

      I'm going to start practicising these skills and start people watching!
