I was lurking at the green spew place this morning, and there was a poster who wanted to know how to deliver "hot" readings to his would be clients.

Hot readings meaning personal & specific info about the sitter that isn't a cold reading.

I know for me anyways there is a certain ethical line I won't cross, for example..I'll stick with my cards & palms, and then some very basic "lines" that I feel would match the sitter. Anymore than this is wicked IMHO.

I remember looking at a new age newspaper and the medium James Van Praagh took out an ad which if you wanted to attend one of his shows, you call a 1-800 number and they'll mail you the tickets to the show. Well, they got your address to work on. That would be considered info for a "hot" reading.

So, my question is what are some of the methods used by people like Edward, Van Praagh, Long Island Medium to get personal and specific info on you and use it in a reading ?

I would think Google would be one source, hiring a private detective would be another way. What do you think ? Maybe getting a credit report on you, maybe ?

Social media has a huge value to modern mind reading!

Apart from social media you can do a Google search on anyone these days and find links to sites that give background checks.  These are pay sites, but if you were doing it on a regular basis it might be worth the small fee for an annual subscription. I doubt they bother with private detectives because of the expense. 

You can be entertaining and create an impression without all that.

Got an address and a name? Hire a skip tracer. If such readings were one's stock in trade I'd imagine you could work out some sort of mutually beneficial deal.

The old methods still work. Keep people waiting & listen, as per Doris Stokes.
Get someone who is plesant to chat too on the phone & chat to people as per how Doris Stokes used her Husband.
Keep a written notes record of what people say, especially if working with regular clients & remember the small details, that works much better than the big details.
Most people who use psychics, use more than one psychic entertainer, not a single psychic & thus your readings need to be good, but not perfect or too much better than the competition.
There are lots of ways to get information, but the best way is to allow the client to respond.
Also methods like palm reading are great for hot reading. As if you can read how each piece of information is being received & that is what having someone's hand in yours does. Then why not simply follow the hand?
Some of the magicians who say they are mentalists really should visit the shut eye world entertainers & see how it's really done & what that world is really like.
Every person who visits a psychic entertainer knows the gets outs well & believes them as much as the reader.
The problem with trying to be too clever & over complicated is, it's more likely to go wrong.

My emphasis added to Paul's comment, with which I entirely agree. But I get a not-overly pleasant feeling that entertainment has dropped off the end of the wagon and is no longer the name of the game here.

I totally believe that. I am not into talking to the dead like the people I listed in my OP, I don't know how these people sleep at night.

Question~ How far would you personally go to get hot info on a sitter ? What would you do ? What would you not do ? Do you have an ethical line that you wont cross ?

Mine is ( well, I've done in the past ) doing pre-show and waiting outside the restroom with my gaffed clipboard via Lee Earle.

Best,
