This type of thing has always confused me as "predicting behaviors" and "mind reading" to me are two different things. Many mentalists seem to call or consider themselves mindreaders and when asked how they do it they explain they do it though being able to understand or "predict behaviors". Interesting...

Sounds like a perfect system for those who have access to MRI equipment and work with small groups over a long enough period to allow the necessary followup for confirmation -- and will be satisfied with a 75% success rate.

So it's a practical method for the everyday mentalist then? Smile

Actually, quite an interesting article, but as always with these studies, it's recommended to read the original scientific journal article/essay if you're itnerested - bits and pieces can always be blown up out of proportion, etc.
