I saw an effect (at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2aVoU5Z5iW0) in which derren brown used clever choice of words to plant a cirten word into a person's mind... over the phone. The method itself is very simple ("3 cogs") asuming it works the way everyone seems to think.

My question is how reliable are these methods? How many times did he perform that trick and fail?
Is the method itself described anywhere so that similar effects (with different words) can be created?

Thanks.

Interesting, I love phone effects for potential clients. There are a few books out on the subject but I have yet to find something other then cold reading I can rely on.

H8cards : don't try to understand Mentalism just for seeing Derren´s effects. Read Corinda, Annemmann , Cassidy and all the other classics and you will understand the real basic principles of this practice.

I'm secretly hoping someone answers your question Slim, so that I can post the Blabbermouth video! Smile
