Ask your volunteer to think of one person, alive or deceased.
Also, ask your volunteer not to reveal the person’s name—not even after the trick is performed.
From a list of 100 different human character traits, (e.g. honesty, energetic, humility) your volunteer, silently and freely, selects and thinks of just one word out of 100 to describe the person being thought of.
Your volunteer does not say anything.
You are not told who the person is nor the word chosen to describe the person.
Your volunteer silently thinks about the person and concentrates on the word.
Your volunteer may never tell you who is being thought of…
…but, you are able to tell your volunteer which one word is in their mind!
