Barnum effect

The reason the fortune teller can read your palm so well she has previously rehearsed sufficient complementary generalities and you can’t help recognizing yourself in them while revealing details and meanings that she would not otherwise have known. * A way for you to relax your critical mind and discover truths hidden inside of you is to shuffle and select a tableau of Tarot cards and get standard interpretations from a book, or to throw coins to construct a hexagram and look up its meanings in the I Ching. * You are more likely to believe generalities were written specifically for you if you also believe in the paranormal.
