How Can You Tell If a Psychic Is Real?

How to Find a Trusted Psychic

Every day, people all over the work look to psychics for support and spiritual guidance. With the evolution of technology, getting a psychic reading is easier than ever. In the online world, hundreds, if not thousands, of gifted individuals have tapped into their psychic potential.

That said, you must be careful about who you trust when getting a future reading—this applies to readings both over the phone and in person. When separating the real from the fake, it is important to know what to look out for; knowing the tell-tale signs of a con artist will help you save time and money.

If you are looking for an online psychic reading, be sure to do your research beforehand. Read reviews from previous clients and make sure the psychic you are considering has a good track record.

6 Ways to Spot a Fake Psychic

1. They Ask for Too Much Information

A truly gifted psychic will have no problem giving you a reading without asking you any questions. Genuine psychics will be able to tune into your energy and pick up on the things that are most important to you. If a psychic starts asking you a lot of questions, it is likely they are not as gifted as they claim to be and are fishing for information.

2. They Use Cold Reading Techniques

Another way to spot a fake psychic is by their use of cold reading techniques. Cold reading is when a psychic uses general statements that apply to a variety of things; for example, in a large crowd, a fake psychic might say, 'I see someone here who is struggling with their love life,' or, 'I feel like there is someone here who is going through a tough time at work.' These statements can apply to just about anyone, so they are not giving away any specific details.

If you are looking for a genuine psychic, find someone who does not resort to cold reading techniques. A gifted psychic will give you specific/accurate information without having to fish for it.

3. They Tease Information

When giving future readings, fake psychics will often tease the information they want out of the querent; once they have done this, they will tell the querent what they think they want to hear.

4. The Ask for Personal Details

Another way to spot a fake is if they ask you for personal information such as your full name, date of birth, or home address—if they do, they are probably just trying to find out more about you so they can scam you more easily.

5. They Try to Upsell You

A genuine psychic will ensure you know what you are paying for when getting a reading. A fake psychic will often try to up-sell you, making you believe that you need to purchase extra services from them to get the information/guidance you want.

Many con artists will want to gain the recipient's trust, and towards the end of the session, they will tell them that a negative/dark aura curses them. If they can convince the querent that this is true, they will try to charge them extra to fix the problem.

6. They Claim to be 100% Accurate

Be wary of anyone who claims to have all the answers or seems overly confident in their abilities. No one knows everything; even the best psychics will admit they do not have all the answers. If someone claims to be 100% accurate or knows exactly what will happen in your future, they are probably not being honest.
