@CaitlinRenee Mary Roach has a really great bit in Spook about how people with actual grants to study these things objectively test psychics, and the first thing is, the readings have to be blind, where the reader can't see any reaction from the subject, and you have to offer the test subjects transcripts of multiple readings, some of which are not theirs. Then the readers pick the ones that seem on the mark to them, and that's how you grade them. And, they fail. When they can't adjust their reading according to the reader's reaction many psychics refuse to participate. The ones who will don't do any better than random selections.
