It's not nice to read something, written in a language you ought to know, and have no clue what it means.


Hi Amens:

By saying "I rest my case," I was merely agreeing that Completely Cold is a very simplistic system that promotes the use of banal generalities in the place of knowledge, intuitive reasoning, empathy, and insight that is essential in developing the ability to present a satisfying and credible reading.

When you said that you use CC when you didn't want to think too much, I believe your words underscored the intent of my previous posting.

I do think the system is super easy, but performing it accurately is a different story.

CC is a good tool to have, but not enough to do a convincing reading, if you really care about the person you have in front of you.

If you don’t care, CC is great, but there are more exciting ways to get that ego trip, like point him/her with a gun and ask for their money.

Thanks a lot for explaining this Smile

I agree with Anabelle that Coldreading, espacially after the CC-system, relays very much on presentation.
If you want to do ColdReading seriously (and want to know what you're talking about [you don't with CC]) you should read Bandler about NLP (a great book), maybe Erickson for suggestions (makes what you say seeming more realistical), and I think Wonder Readings for some psychology behind.
This book (Wonder Readings) is simply awesome.
You learn a LOT with this book!!!
