Cold Reading

Cold reading is what 'psychics' do to make it seem that they have 'psychic' knowledge e.g. mind-reading, remote-viewing, talking to the dead, etc.

The example of cold reading given in James Randi's latest
newsletter (and more fully here) - about an attempt by a famous US 'psychic' to locate a missing person - is very cold indeed (on so many levels). Note that the murderer of the missing person was in the studio while the 'psychic' was using her 'powers'.
