Mentalism

ESP cardsMentalism is a branch of magic that appears to employ psychic powers to read someone's mind, predict the future, and similar paranormal action. But the mentalist is really a magician who uses conjuring methods to bring about such psychic effects. It's often been said that if a magician uses "sleight of hand," then a mentalist uses "sleight of mind." Therefore, although a mentalist's so-called psychic powers might appear to be genuine, he is really a highly skilled magician and entertainer.
