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

Not sure using a lit cigarette is the best trick for using between classes at school :)

I'm not really sure, what you want? Are you looking for something that makes you look psychic that your can do impromptu and under test conditions? Or are you searching for an effect, for that special moment that will identify you, as a mentalist? Or neither and just something cool, to show family and friends?

I have a go to effect that I have with me all the time but only use when appropriately suitable, to my surroundings.  It's a very specific effect meant to prove that I'm psychic and specifically, able to predict the future. I use it with perspective clients but also when I'm just trying, to impress people. I have 3 different versions of the effect, that depend on my manor of dress and projected social interaction for that day.

It's nothing stellar and wouldn't fool magicians or mentalists but floors the lay and that's my goal. If that sounds interesting and if you share with me why you want the effect and if I think it's appropriate, I will be happy to share it with you in pm.

Just let me know?
