These days, you'd probably be better off using the term "micro-languages".



Perhaps. I keep forgetting that our computer literate youth do not know how to do a Google search.

In fairness, the available search engines today do not respond to a query, but attempt to stack the closest match of purchased ads.

Isn't "micro-language" the name of a rock group or a line of purse sold at Target?

"You don't need lingo. Understand the psychological desire of people to be entertained, and their willingness to participate in normally risky social behavior
when they have someone to blame the silliness/weirdness on. This used to be called "being in the limelight." " - This is really nice viewpoint Funsway. Thanks for the same.

From the replies, it is clear that my question needed much more context. So here we go:

Basically I would like to present the session as an entertaining demonstration of powers or oddity of the human brain, with the effects being presented as "demos" for the same, with the overall intention of ending the session with a positive/motivating message rather than being a session which showcases "supernatural powers" of my mind, by which I can read minds etc.

Example: An effect featuring "Barnum effect", a cognitive bias.

I was looking for more effects of similar nature.

I hope this helps to clarify.

You got your intro right there!
