Magic Trick: Mind Reading

Miscellaneous June 25, 2019

This is a fun trick you can use to amaze family & friends, who’ll be left scratching their heads, wondering – how did he know that? It works the same for one or more people at once, but you must be very clear in providing the proper instructions.

Note: I’ll post the answer tomorrow, so, if you’d like, you can play along today!

I have a trick I’d like to show you. It requires that you do some math, and you’re welcome to use a calculator if you’d like – but, it isn’t necessary.

Pick a number from 1-100 and don’t tell me. Keep it secret, and let me know when you’ve selected a number.

Ok. Multiply that number by 9…

Is your answer 2 or more digits long, yes or no?

If they say, “no”, then continue to The Next Step – see below.

If they say “yes”, then you say –

Ok. Now, add the digits together. For example, if your answer was 123, then add the “1” plus the “2” plus the “3” together to get a new number of “6”.

Next, rephrase the same question –

Is this new number still 2 or more digits long?

If so, have them add the digits together again & ask once more.

This time, they’ll answer “no” – continue to The Next Step.

The Next Step

Next, I’d like you to subtract 5 from your number…

Now I’d like you to assign your answer to its corresponding letter in the alphabet; for example, 1 = A, 2 = B, 3 = C, and so on. Let me know when you’ve done this.

Ok. Think of the name of a country in the north that begins with that letter. Let me know when you’re ready to continue.

Next, move one letter further into the alphabet, and think of the name of a very large land animal beginning with that letter.

Conclusion

I’ll provide the answer…tomorrow. See you then!
