THE PSYCHIC NUMBER

Mind Reading Trick

The Effect:

You are able to reveal a number merely thought of by a spectator. Have one of your friends think of a number between 1 and 30. When they have decided on a number, hand them a pencil and show them the chart that appears on the bottom half of this page. Ask them to tap on each circle that contains their   number using the pencil for this purpose. You are immediately able to name the selected number.

The Secret:

This is a very easy trick to perform once you know the secret. You simply add up the middle number of each circle they touch.  For example, if the selected number is 7, the spectator will touch the top two circles and the middle circle. The center numbers of these circles are 1, 2, and 4 which equals 7. This will work for any number selected.

Performance Tip:

Start by pointing the top left corner circle. If they say their number is there, add 1 in your mind. Then go to the top right corner circle (number #2). If they say it’s not there, keep moving with the center circle (number #4). Let’s say they say it’s not there. Look a little confused, as if you were expecting the number to be there. This is a great technique that allows you to pretend you are getting inside their mind. Then continue with the bottom left (number #8). They said no? No worries, continue with the bottom right circle (number #16). They say yes, it is there. Then in your mind you add 1 + 16 = 17! you tell them 17 is their number and they go nuts! See how fast it is? This way, you can add the center number on your mind and reveal their number as soon as they tell you where their number is in that circle or not.
