PostSubject: Telepathy   Sat 29 Dec 2007, 3:47 pm

As a matter of interest has anyone else experienced any form of telepathy with anyone close to them? When working in my last job my two colleagues and I used to be totally on the same wave length, we knew what each other was thinking a lot of the time. If I was thinking about a certain topic, they would often start talking about what I was thinking.

My husband and I "suffer" from the same thing - we often say exactly the same thing at the same time quite out of the blue.

The question is how much of it is psychic ability and how much is familiarity or coincidence. There are times my wife and I come out with the same comments, but is that because we have become accustomed to each other and have adopted each others phrases or become so accustomed we read each others mind? If it happened with total strangers that would be quite evidential but then do you need that familiarity for it to work?

Have you tried any ESP tests such as Zener cards. Wikipedia actually describes how to use them and the link is below.

You can print your own cards here.

Maybe by doing little tests like these it could help develop any psychic ability you have, whilst having a bit of fun.

Hi Ian
Thanks for your reply.

I sometimes wonder how much coincidence is involved- the other night though was quite bizarre because we both said the same thing (we were watching the television and my husband said the exact thing that I was thinking, which was completely unrelated to what we were watching at the time, maybe we just react to the same triggers in the same way and like you say it being a coincidence.

Those cards look really interesting. Will have to check them out. I must admit that my immediate reaction was that if there were only a limited set of cards you would have a 1 in 5 chance of picking the correct card at random but it said that on the wiki anyway.

What tests like zener do is help give a statistical way of showing whether something is chance or not. By chance you should be able to guess a certain percentage, anything higher than that on a continuous basis could be very interesting.

I suppose psychic ability may vary from individual to individual so this may not be a good test for all psychics, but a good experiment to play with Smile .
