Tips to Learn Mentalist Mind Tricks

unduhan (39)Mentalism is really pretty impressive when you look at some of the pros’ performances on TV. Some of what they do seems so unreal.

The difference between a lot of magicians and mentalists is that magicians let their subjects know that they are indeed performers. In other words, they don’t have any superpowers or a sixth sense so to speak. However, a lot of mentalists choose to make their subjects believe they do have some sort of special powers. Which we all know just isn’t possible. An example of this would be Uri Geller from years ago.

Many mentalists might claim they are psychic, telepathic, can hypnotize, levitate and can even read minds among other things… Like magically bend spoons, but it’s all just a performance actually.

So what are some of the important aspects of being able to learn mentalist mind tricks? What do the pros use to pull off their tricks? I’ll discuss a few things below that every mentalist should know.

Reading Body Language

Reading body language is a huge part of mentalism. This is especially true for tricks like reading minds, which is one of the most popular of all mentalist mind tricks. When learning mentalist mind tricks you must master reading body language. A practitioner must learn to pay attention to and decipher the minutest details in body language.

There are other professions that focus on reading body language. Psychologists are trained to read body language as well as many people who work in law enforcement like the police and the FBI.

Presentation

How you go about your presentation in mentalism is also very important. Without proper presentation, some of your attempts at pulling off a mentalist trick could be ruined and end with embarrassment. Mentalists who are great at presentation are David Blaine and Criss Angel among many others. These guys have literally mastered presentation and because of it can fool scores of people all at once. So needless to say, as you learn mentalist mind tricks, make sure you master presentation.

Controlling Focus

When learning to perform mentalist mind tricks, it’s very important that a mentalist control their subject’s focus. Because if a mentalist loses control of this one important aspect of mentalism, their trick may be discovered.

Practice Daily

Finally, in order to learn mentalist mind tricks so that you can pull them off naturally, you must practice daily. Learning to read body language can be fun and you can develop this skill simply by watching people anywhere you are. – While at the mall, a restaurant, the gym, just make sure you don’t come off as creepy.

 

Top Ten Reasons to Work at a Haunted House

images (21)10. Being a zombie at work is rewarded. So many jobs are imprisonment. So many people are zombies at work and zombies at home, slogging through a job they hate to collapse in front of the TV at night. Their zombie-inspired existence is depressing. Ours is hilarious. We giggle and shake with anticipation of embracing our zombie-ness.

9. There is not a desk in sight. And if there is, it’s covered with rust and body parts to create a horrific office scene that poor 9-5 drones will relate to. If we’re wearing a tie, it’s askew and doubles as a noose.

8. Sarcasm is a technical skill and generously embraced. Wit is rewarded. Skewed perspective is considered a leadership quality. Humor is the order of the day. And all of our creations are born from a severed funny bone.

7. Ideas are welcome. No longer do we have to stay silent and let the boss tell us what to do. We are a team. We are open to expression. We look for the employee that other industries have tossed out.

6. Our world is always changing. The basic goal remains the same… Scare the Beetlejuice out of people. But the method to the madness is in constant flux. There is always more to do, things to create and ideas to explore. The haunt world never sleeps, even at 1:23pm on a Tuesday in February.

5. The dress code rocks. Some of us wear black and hide in the nooks and crannies. Some don their favorite red striped sweater to pay tribute to our recently departed hero. Some have the neatly teased black hair with oh-so-perfect bangs, red lipstick and gnarly tattoos… but whatever we wear. No. One. Cares.

4. We can sleep til noon. We can live during the witching hours. We wake up late to tumble into the hallowed halls and wait for our victims to come giggling up the sidewalk. Then we can come alive with ghoulish gumption before collapsing at the end of the night, sweaty and more than a little satisfied.

3. We witness emotion. Real, raw emotion… on a daily basis. We inspire our guests to scream, laugh, cry, shriek, run, hide and faint. We provide a place where people can escape the boring horrors of daily life and succumb to the thrilling horrors of fantasy while safely in our grasp.

2. We can let our inner freak fly. We flirt, tease and playfully bully our guests. Some of them shriek. Some slip their phone numbers into our rubber-gloved hands. We can embrace that we live on the island of misfit toys. We can celebrate that we are the square peg. And we can finally get the attention we crave. Because behind our monster masks… we need love too.

1. We are home. It might not always be lucrative, but it’s rich with creativity, comradery and innovation. Anything goes. The weirder the better. And no matter how old we get, we will always be kids as long as we are home.
