How To Spot A Fake Psychic - What To Look For

Updated on June 18, 2011

Have you ever wondered if the psychic you are going to see is for real? After all, fifty or sixty dollars is a lot of cash to lay out for thirty minutes of entertainment. Most times after a reading, you may be feeling a little lighter in the pocketbook and quite angry that you have just been taken for a ride. If you're absolutely positive that you would like to see a psychic, first consider a few points.

1. Be wary of the free service. This may be just a trick to get you in, only to be told that the first five minutes are free. Anything after that will have you watching both your clock and your dollars ticking away. Once again, when you leave, you're a little less rich and left scratching your head which is now banging up against a wall. You have just been taken on another short trip to weirdsville, a place where you are none the wiser.

2. When you first meet your psychic and notice that they're wearing a costume from the 17th century, I would definitely fake a heart attack. Tell her or him that you're feeling sick and then get the heck out of there before you blow another $60.

3. When you walk into a psychic room and feel that something is not right, you should trust your instincts which are trying to warn you about this place or person. You may not be a psychic, but we all have instincts when we first meet someone new. Before you show the money, maybe getting out of there would be a better option. The old heart attack trick comes in real handy at times. If you're not feeling good about this place, then you are most likely correct. Save your grocery money and go somewhere else. The next place may feel just perfect and not so cold.

4. Psychics all want to prove to you that they really do have powers to see into the future.
Some things to look for that may give you a clue into a fake reading are:

A: a spoon moving slowly across the table in front of you
B: the eyes of the psychic are rolled back and only the whites are showing
C. the psychic slowly begins to levitate from a chair

These clues may be enough to have you pay close attention.
You may also want to look for the closest exit out of this place.

Holy cow!

The person sitting in front of you is the Devil!

Psychic or not - Run away fast!

Run for your life!

      Good article. More people should read it. Real psychics don't try to play up to the stereotypes or employ theatrics. Voted up & useful.

      A real psychic will usually be laidback and won't try to play up the 'mystical' aspect. Fortune telling is just a part of life for them, so those who actually have faith in their powers won't be out to scam you. They'll just be out to provide what they feel is a valuable service.

      If I remember right, the Edge of the Circle shop in Seattle has a great tarot reader.
