Cold Reading | Vidya Sury, Collecting Smiles
Cold reading is a technique often used by mentalists,fortune tellers, psychics, and mediums to determinedetails about another person in order to convincethem that the reader knows much more about asubject than he or she actually does. Even withoutprior knowledge of a person, a practiced cold readercan still quickly obtain a great deal of informationabout the subject by carefully analyzing the person’sbody language, clothing or fashion, hairstyle, gender,sexual orientation, religion, race or ethnicity, level of,education, manner of speech, place of origin, etc. Cold readers commonly employ high probabilityguesses about the subject, quickly picking up onsignals from their subjects as to whether theirguesses are in the right direction or not, and thenemphasizing and reinforcing any chance connectionsthe subjects acknowledge while quickly moving onfrom missed guesses.
