Alright - this man goes to the psychiatrist and says 'Doctor, you've got to help me. My wife thinks I'm crazy because I love sausages'.

The shrink responds by saying 'What? That's preposterous. I like sausages, but that doesn't make me crazy'.

So the man says 'Great! You must come to my house and see my collection. I've got hundreds of them.'

Not exactly Freudian, but I found it amusing.

But in hindsight - I realize now that my joke could be (and probably is) rather offensive to people who have been influenced by mental health problems. I sincerely apologize to anyone who may have been upset by this rather crude and insensitive joke. Sorry.

Shall we just focus on psychoanalytically flavoured routines?

Any more contributions?

How's this:

What, are you suggesting CR's for each of these types?

Or some kind of prediction? Such as:- I knew you'd do that, because you're this type ... and this type has this quality ... which you've just exhibited.

Could you please elaborate T.H.?

Yeah - I kind of like where you're going with it.

But on the other hand - unless I'm mistaken, that four-fold model of personality isn't widely respected these days. And I'd hate to present out-of-date science. And before anyone starts - psychodynamics is not out of date!

Although you are giving me some ideas ...

But anyway, we shouldn't have to invent our own psychodynamic presentations (although I'm not saying we shouldn't be original)! There should be loads out there, given that psychodynamics is the oldest school of thought in psychology. There should be an overabundance of such presentations.

I swear, there must be some in the Jinx. Alas, I only have the thing on CD rom, and I can't read it all off the screen. What we need is a Jinx expert to read this thread, then supply the references.

But thanks for the thoughts T.H.!

'Instant Transference'

Spectator is aksed to genuinely go along with the routine or it won't work. After a quick intro to transference, they are aksed to perceive the mentalist as someone they know (eg. parent, caregiver, aunt, uncle, grandparent, sibling, spouse, ex etc.) and to be comfortable with their decision. They are aksed to write down this person's name and relation to them and then, using whatever method (ie. acidus), you acquire the information.

You then ask them to continue acting toward you as if you were that person. You state that you are psychoanalytically reading their responses & behaviour to provide clues as to which person you are being perceived as- the phenomena of transference. Leave the mystery by revealing the name also?!

My God! That is really quite tasty. Good work!

And you could instruct the participant to 'hear that person speaking to you'.

So not only do you divine, say, a thought-of word (an object that was meaningful when the participant was growing up - such as a skateboard or a rubik's cube), or the name of the person. You also figure out exactly WHOSE voice the spectator is hearing. That is something I've always wanted to do in a piece of mind reading.

Nice one Mentalisten

Yeah, I think I will if the mods let me. Don't you like it? You don't think it's over the top, do you?

Speaking for both the cracked nuts and the brain crushed, yes. How about: X?

Ha ha - Well, I was just trying to out-do Mindpunisher with the militancy of my name. Maybe I'll choose something milder ...

But what's in a name anyway?
