How to become a mentalist
It takes a bit of hard work and practice to become a mentalist. Some kids regard it as magic, but mentalism is purely a mental play that does not involve too much sleight of hand or special techniques. It involves applying the practitioner’s know-how and own style to make it fun and amazing.
Becoming a mentalist involves learning different mind tricks. Mentalism is 80 percent performance and 20 percent style. If you try to perform it for your friends and family, and successfully do it, they might think that you have supernatural powers.
You don’t have to possess supernatural powers or dedicate your life to learn mentalism. With the following easy mentalism or mind-reading tricks, you can be an instant mentalist anytime and anywhere:
Naming the dead
This mind trick is intended to be performed before a large crowd. Pick three people from the crowd (it is best to pick individuals whom you do not know). Hold a piece of paper and rip it into thirds. Give the first third, the piece with the ripped side and straight side, to the first person. Give the third piece, the one with the other straight side and ripped side, to the third person. Remember the second person who has the piece with both ripped sides. This piece is the key to the trick.
Then, ask the first person and third person to write the name of one living friend or family. For the second person, ask him to write the name of a dead person. After they do it, ask them to put the papers into a hat, while you announce that you will draw the name of the dead person. You will be away or turn your back so you won’t see what they write.
Then, you draw the name of the dead person. Ask someone to hold the hat for you so it’s clear that you can’t see inside. Make it appear that you concentrate really hard. Tell everyone that you already know the name of the dead person while you look at the second person. While your hand is inside the hat, feel around the edges of each slip of paper to find the one that has both rough edges. Finally, pick it out and read the name found on the second piece of paper that you have drawn.
