A dream of all mentalist !..
I'm investigating for only verbal effects. For example: P. A.for guessing signs thought.
No pens, papers, clipboards. Nothing... Only two minds (spectator and mentalist).
Only verbal performances.

Could someone kindly give some ideas?

Thanks !

Without any intention of being offensive, MrPoponi , did you study Mentalism with the props that you are denying in your first post? (billets for example)

What´s your performing experience?
Recently Brandon Queen releeased "Phatom". On there you can find propless approaches.

I have some "propless" material on my books and Fraser Parker, as Dee said.

My tip is to focus more in the experience that you create with your participants, not in the inner conditions of your mentalism effects.

Props can help us.

Thanks, Dee!

Amirá,

I'm just trying to work with some variations. It is important to be aware of what we can learn. Of course this "mentalism style" (only verbal) would not be suitable for stage, for example. This Applications would be in rare cases where someone approaches us to make a total imprompt mentalism.Smile

All the best!

Thanks for the shout Pablo!

Mr. Poponi, Here is a demo of me performing a couple things from PHATHOM.

Okay, putting aside the obvious comments about how valuable props can be in the dramatic side of performance (since I'm reading this thread as being about things we *could* do, rather than constructing a prop-less show)...

My favourite entirely propless effect goes like this -

Performer: "I'm going to transmit a thought into your mind. Some people feel it come suddenly, others find it emerges slowly as they open up the right part of their brain. I'm going to send you a colour when I click my fingers, I want you to say the colour that you intuitively feel is correct." *click*
Spectator: "Turquoise"
Performer: "Correct!"

:)

Psychological and statistical forces.

Rick Maue's "Imagine."

"Thought Channel", "Prevaricator" and any number of existing logic puzzles.

Zodiac anagrams, such as the ones you've mentioned.

The material recommended in Brandon Queen's "PHATHOM."

As Slim King mentioned, the subject and life study of hypnosis could be of definite benefit to you.

I would also submit that psychic/intuitive readings, cold reading, character profiling and personality analysis would also fit with your criteria spectacularly well.

Non-contact mind reading, while complex, is something you might find exceedingly potent.

E.E.s "Invisible Gemstone" & "Invisible Readings."

Practically ALL body magic routines...

Rowland's "NMDD" traced upon the hand/body or in the air with verbal descriptions.

"Tsunami" (Bob Farmer) without a physical deck of cards (double for Osterlind's "Miracle Thought Projection").

Maven's "Positive Negative" (sans the written prediction)

Not to throw too many options into the mix or accidently fall into the hot, dark tar pits of self-promotion, but my own work and material re: "Guerrilla Q&A", "The Process", "Energetic Touches", "Crossing Over", "The 4 Questions", "True Telepathy", "Thought Circle", cloud busting, dream walking (etc) also fit the bill perfectly.

Long story short?

Readings/Q&A, hypnosis, an arsenal of psy. forces + proficiency with non-contact mind reading techniques and mind/body magic will likely be your best bet.

;)

A go to oldy but goody is gray elephants in denmark.

I get people all the time with this one. I just hand them my phone with a calculator and have fun with it. I talk about numbers and triangles specifically, patterns of three dictate things that happen to us without us realizing it.

They do have to have a way to verify you're correct about the day, but this is done easily enough with their own mobile device.
