I would like to try a mind reading experiment.

I need two volunteers - I cant do it with any more than that at the moment, but if anyone wants to try it, let me know straight away.

Thanks.

me

Eldrick

Eldrick Report 11 Jul 2008 10:42

OK, Pauline and GG.

Eldrick

Eldrick Report 11 Jul 2008 10:43

What I need to say from the start is for no one else to post until I've finished.

In the meantime, Pauline, think of a number from one to ten and then tell me what it is. This isnt the test, its necessary to know an arbitary number before we start.

Eldrick

Eldrick Report 11 Jul 2008 10:47

OK. Thanks for that. That was an odd number. Great.

I am now going to post a list of 'things - 10 in total. They are numbered one to ten.

Pauline - I want you to choose one of the ODD numbered things.

GG - I want you to choose one of the EVEN numbered things

Once you have posted a reply to say you understand, I will post the list.

Any questions?

Debbie

Debbie Report 11 Jul 2008 10:48

ok

Eldrick

Eldrick Report 11 Jul 2008 10:49

No, keep it to yourself. I will tell YOU what you chose - hopefully - at the end. are you ready then....?

Debbie

Debbie Report 11 Jul 2008 10:50

yes i'm ready

Eldrick

Eldrick Report 11 Jul 2008 10:51

HAve you both chosen one...?

Debbie

Debbie Report 11 Jul 2008 10:51

yes

Eldrick

Eldrick Report 11 Jul 2008 10:53

Right - keep thinking of it.

I am now going to try some association - I will post another list - i want you, in your mind - to associate one of the itmes on the list with the item you first chose. This will make the link stronger for me to detect.

So - look at the list, try to make an association and I will then try to read your minds to see what you were thinking of in the first place. OK? ANy questions?

Debbie

Debbie Report 11 Jul 2008 10:53

ok, carry on

Eldrick

Eldrick Report 11 Jul 2008 10:55
