Why don't just read his mind when this situation arrives?

Just reframe the roles ( YOU should be in control) and use that to share some Mentalism.

"Look me into my eyes....

Nothing (relaxing tension)

I saw a few things of your life, but you werent focus in something. Lets do this, I have in here 5 ESP cards..."

Pete Turner does indeed have one of the best responses to this question and he is including it on the DVD too Smile

Before learning Pete's I used to follow by saying the following (which your more than welcome to use): "Reading minds requires two key elements, firstly a good sender of information and secondly a good receiver of information. Both of these are very rare talents and unfortunately without the two working together this would be a futile process."

This gives a feasible excuse to move on and also lets the audience realize that they are witnessing something very special and rare when you do find a more compliant spectator to work with. It also provides you with an opening to try something on a smaller scale to test the waters as it were.

As a mentalist you must always ask yourself what if! And throughout your life you should seek to ask and answer this question over and over again, only then will your wildest dreams become a reality!

"What am I thinking them?"

"Oh I'm sorry you should have let me finish. I read minds for MONEY! I take cash, cheques or credit cards!"

Of course we shouldn't steal other people's material but you can't get better than Mel Mellor:

"Oh you are thinking about getting a new hair-do... Well you must! You can't go around looking like that, can you?"

Quicknotist, I don't know who you are, but I really like your 'CASH' answer. By far the best.
Your also very good looking. We have your photograph up on our wall and my cellmate says you remind him of Steve McQueen, in the later days?

Very good line to introduce yourself - without saying "I am mentalist" - is Paul Brook's sentence: "I am a performer".Maybe it doesn't matter but I see only one weak point of this introduction - not every language is good enough to say this line; in polish (my language) it doesn't work wery well, but in english... well I think it's really great lien to introduce yourself and avoid many of questions if we don't like to answer it.

Tell your cellmate it takes a McQueen to know a McQueen.

I have always been in this position, at times I remark with "I knew you're going to say that" and pull out from my pocket a folded note which reads "What am I thinking right now?"

Possibly after a probing, dramatic gaze:

"You seem to be thinking that you'll be getting a free show."

Or if you know their job, offer a trade. Maybe a mind reading for a root canal if they're a dentist, and so on. Why does nobody go "oh, you're a fashion designer? Design me some clothes right now!"

Of course, there are those times where I just tell them what they're thinking, but I can't rely on that...

And, if you're a smart@ss, "anything at all". "That's not what I was thinking!" "It is now."

There's an outstanding idea on how to deal with this in Bruce Bernstein's "Unreal".

I have said "You're thinking that it would be really cool if I could tell you what you're thinking right now..." Then I do.

I regularly read the "I don't use a title--I just do my thing and let them decide, etc."
Question: If you perform for pay, what do you tell your potential clients or talent agents you are?
You have to tell them SOMETHING so they'll know what kind of an entertainer they are getting.
