105. I tend
to believe more in intuition than actual psychic ability. I also agree that people may mix the two up. I don't discount all psychic ability, but I've never known anybody to have "real" powers. I have seen people display amazing intuition, however. But, it's always based upon prior information. (For example, I've seen people be able to predict, amazingly, the outcome of several scenarios with a decent rate of success. Sportswriters make a living out of that.)

I don't believe that people like John Edwards are for real. (Entertainers.) There may be some true mediums who have those powers, and I don't discount that. But I do believe that there are people out there who do take advantage of people's emotional weaknesses, and we need to vigilantly take care of them. There are also gypsy mediums in NYC who are trained to ask the right questions to gain the confidence of their marks. Despite their skill, I've had readings by these people that have never been accurate. (I've never had an accurate palm reading or card reading. And I've tried them a number of times.)
