Why on earth would you do that? Reading palms and interpreting the lines according to their traditional meanings is hardly "psychic."

Are you saying that all mentalists should tell their audiences that they are using trickery and subterfuge, otherwise they are not ethical? (Or are you just pulling our chains?)

I flat out tell my audiences that I read minds.

And I do.

That is not what I'm saying, however I do have an issue with those members of our community who think owning a copy of Corinda and a few cold reading books gives them the right to dish out "psychic" advice. Seems to be a growing trend, and it's one that leaves a foul taste in the back of my mouth...

Oh no worries, I didn't state that I had psychic powers or anything of the sort. I actually just said that I've been learning to read palms and wanted to see if they would like a reading. No radical notions were present at all!

In the end, I believe in not using any disclaimers at all. It's all just pure entertainment.

Actually, D.J., my response was directed to Chris H., who asked if you "ethically and responsibly" advised your sitters that all you used was trickery and subterfuge.

So I responded, "Why on earth would you do that?"

I consider myself to be ethical and responsible and would NEVER destroy my claim to be a mind reader by telling an audience it was just trickery.

Oh, my apologies Mr. Cassidy! I got mixed up with the responses of course. I'm still new on these neck of the woods!
