Hey fellas!!!

I searched in the forum, but didn't see this topic.  What is everybody's go-to mentalism trick?  Preferably, something somewhat beginnerish. A lot of students catch me between classes when I am walking around and there isn't time to fish out props.  I'm looking for something I can do while in the hall and talking. 

Thanks in advance!!!

Do you carry a cell phone? If so Inject 2 is worth looking into a few effects you dont need your phone some people don't care for inject but I like it and have been a mentalist for many years. If you have a smart watch it helps

I have a cell phone.  I can find Inject, but I can't find Inject 2.  Is it in the Apple Store?

I would tell you to get and learn Doug Dyment's Sign Language, it's prop less mind reading. Or learn some verbal forces like "I am thinking of a number between 1 and 50",you know. A quick look at reading there palm or doing a reading with a pendulum can give insights to their personality.

Also, learning PK Touches needs no props at all.
If you ware a jacket you can do Bob Cassidy's Chronologue

I have some other ideas, but it's late here.

A version of Max Maven's Positive/Negative might be worth learning. There are several, but I prefer John Bannon's Ion Man or David Parr's Proof Positive. Ion Man requires a prop, but one that fits easily in a side pants pocket. Proof Positive uses only a single coin, but there are some performance restrictions to be considered. I could perform either in a classroom hallway. Of course you don't want to overwork the equivoque... Both of the tricks I recommend can be found in back issues of MAGIC Magazine, although the Bannon effect has been written up in one of his books as well.

I forgot to add; Stigmata/ If your fair skinned, this rocks.
                       A peek Wallet
                       Bent on Strange/ Cassidy.

And also in David Parr's book Brain Food there is a effect that uses a TT and you take a lit cigarette and put it in your  hand and it won't hurt you. I don't know the name of it, but all that is needed is a TT. Mind over pain thing, if your into geek magic.
 


PS: You could do the number 37 Force and do Stigmata together. I've never done that before, I don't see why that wouldn't work.

For a casual (in the halls) performance, I'd go with a which hand routine. All you need is a coin, a ring, or anything really, and you can do something pretty impressive. I'd recommend Manoeda by Ever Elivade, Tequila Hustler by Mark Elsdon, V by Manos. I've even got a fun presentation with a surefire method I'm working on. I'll keep everyone posted and share it when it's written.

Cheers,
Craig

Read Banachek's Psychological Subtleties 1    He got a huge section in there of impromptu mind reading. (and its a great book for all mentalists)

Stigmata is legit, I never do the card version and I have constructed it so I do everything in real time in front of the spectator, I also use Lukes silent Alphabet count which just increases the 'believability', I have also done it with a pulse stop, you can use it as a stand-alone effect, or an ending reveal such as Bob's "Name and Place" routine etc

depending on your style, and preferred performance mediums, with a billet peek, thumb/pocket writing, and a card index you can do anything "impromptu" and extend your creativity outside the "routine" mind frame and constrictions
