When your index and middle fingers constantly touches your temple.
When you stroke your imaginary beard.
When a magician friend drops a card, you magnificently blurt out the words," what card were you thinking of?'"


Peace,

You know you are becoming a mentalist when.....

You stop posting on this board for the general public, card tricksters, and wannabe mentalists to read.

When you start listening for sounds in words that sound like sounds from other words. then remembering them, and the context of the current communication, as well as the future intention for playing with aforementioned sounds.

When you find yourself formulating predictions for headline hurls when reading the paper or listening to the news.

When you find yourself looking eagerly for news of "hits" on your dire predictions.

When you refer to normal (non-Tarot) decks of cards as "muggle decks."

Yours,

When you find yourself looking through every paperback book in your library for the ones that you can use in an "impromptu" book test to force a certain word or phrase.

When you wind up cutting up the envelopes you just bought at Staples and tell your wife that they are now "important."

You and your wife are always finishing other people's sentences and then asking - "Right?"

You carry a pendulum and don't think that it's off.

Your thumbnail has a permenant nick in it's center and your manicurist leaves it there on your instructions.

You can cock either eyeborw, and do it automatically, depending on which side the lighting is coming from, even at a toll booth at night.

You read your snail mail by putting the unopened envelopes to your forehead...

If you're a student like me, you know when:

Your classrooms at school have strange fork sculptures on display.

You try desperately to make studying entertaining by using it as a mnemonic exercise for your extraordinary mind power.

You pick up on pencil strokes of the people taking notes in front of you.

The only reason you take interest in your teacher's lecture on basidiocarps is because it helps you practice lip reading.

People ask you to use your powers to change their GPA.

You regret the fact that you're far too moral to use your abilities to get a better test grade.

You practice suggestion and anchoring techniques on your classmates and they don't even know it.

When the fork and spoon around the table has bent!
or
when you start to say:"concentrate on your thought,burn them into memory...now repeat it in your mind.....five....five of ...five of hearts",rather "pick a card,any card....let me find it.....hey,is that your card,five of hearts?"
or
you start to put your finger near your forehead like Banachek (please don't get offended,i am your fan!),when you doing magic act.....rather doing some crazy flourish with cards or coin.
and ultimately,
someone say:"hey,that guy over there,he is crazy,he could read mind,i still can't believe it..."
rather than "hey Mr.Magician,come over,show my fren some tricks,remember the one you showed me last week,all the aces change to kings........."
Never ever have bad thought,you never know who is listening....

You can't get into your own car because your keys are all bent... and suddenly, they aren't bent anymore!

You get mad that you can't use a hotelroom key for your "mental exercise" because the plastic cards keep breaking instead of bending.

Your horse at the track is always one-ahead!

You've just finished reading Mitch Albom's "The Five People You Meet in Heaven" and find yourself wishing you could meet Alexander, Dunninger, Koran, Annemann and Hoy.

When you're asked which five people currently alive you'd most like to have dinner with you respond, "Kreskin, Banachek, Richard Osterlind, Max Maven and Marc Salem." Smile

1. When you instantaneously ask for a pen when someone gives you their business card.
2. When you shut the TV sound so that you can practice your NLP skills, muscle reading and stuff...
3. When you have a monologue while talking to a friend (always asking to the questions he was supposed to answer).

This one happened today:
When your teacher tells you not to hypnotize him and make him leave the classroom during the test because he's hungry or has to go to the bathroom... and someone chimes in that you should make him lock himself out. Smile

My girlfriend thinks I am a mentalist. We go to a movie and she asks what will happen. In fact, I think most women think that most men in the relationships are mentalists. You always have to figure out what the are thinking or meant.
