Hello guys,

Note : Sorry I left the Café for a while. I secluded myself from social circles to work on my sleight-of-hand. I'm proud to come back as a 1 year old magician mastering the Top Shot, the Shell Game and Cups & Balls, basic stage manipulations, one handed riffle shuffles, and other flourishes. But that's enough bragging.

I'm here today on this part of the Forum because a thought just crossed my mind about an eventual mentalism trick I'm trying to create.

Does any of you know what are the most selected numbers (max. 8) (in order, possibly) from 1 to 5 (I know 3 is the one from 1 to 4), 1 to 9 or 10 (is it 7 ?), 1 to 20, 1 to 50, and 1 to 99 or 100 ?

It took you a whole year? Then I bet you could master mentalism in 6 months, 7 tops.

Check Banacheks Psychological Subleties and after you've done that I can tell you that girlfriends have this wierd ... 'Number selection' that they go for something that most people don't go for.

Has to be because of oxytocin levels... strange love.

I regularly ask people to select a number between 1 and 100 and there is never a common number, however a few times in the same evening in different locations people pick the same number e.g.71
Don't know why maybe something on the news or in the air???
I love post its Smile

Haha, I 2nd that! girlfriends and wives are the most contrary and challenging specs ever for me! That said, the other night I asked my wife (who incidentaly I stopped discussing methods with around 5 years ago) what the most amazing and impossible thing she thought was possible from deck of cards, she said "I dunno... probably just telling me what card I am thinking of"... I performed Pete Turners Getting to Know You and it actually melted her mind... she was convinced that I was only able to do it because I know her soo well and when I said it was possible to do with anyone that was willing to engage in the process she flipped. I have read a few references to the 'impressing the wife measure' for ascertaining how good an effect is, if indeed it is the measure Getting to Know You is gold!

My suggestion for the OP would be to suss out a routine that allows you to ask specs for random 2 digit numbers that has a succesful outcome no matter what - then you can build up your own database of number/replies and go from there.

Thank you guys for the ressources. Psychological's Subtelties proved to be an awesome pedia for beginning mentalism Smile

But about girlfriends, what number selection are you talking about ?
