Psychic

A psychic is a person who claims to use extrasensory perception (ESP) to identify information hidden from the normal senses. The word "psychic" is also used as an adjective to describe such abilities. Psychics may be theatrical performers, such as stage magicians, who use techniques such as prestidigitation, cold reading, and hot reading to produce the appearance of such abilities. Psychics appear regularly in fantasy fiction, such as in the novel The Dead Zone by Stephen King.

Basic Psychics have a special gift that let them see beyond what normal people can in terms of the future and/or spirit world. A Clairvoyant is a common type of psychic. Clairvoyance is the ability to see something that someone is removed from. This is the type of ability that is used by psychics that is used to find out what happened in crimes or to describe past events that have occured in this world only. While all forms of psychics have some level of unreliablity to them, clairvoyants tend to be trusted more often. Some psychics have the ability of astral projection, though this is far more difficult to control. Astral Projection is the ability travel in spirit to another location by leaving the body. This type of psychic can see things going on simultaneously in a different location from their own. A conversation can be happening hundreds of miles away and the psychic can not only tell you what is said, but what the surroundings look like. Astral Projection works in the spirit realm as well. Mediums are often misunderstood psychics. They are the kind of psychics that you would usually see on tv or in movies that speak with a strange voice as a 'demon' has taken over them. Mediums are in control of most psychic situation and welcome the spirit to 'host' in their body. They can pick up on spirits from this realm, from spiritual realms, from the past, and from the dead. Mediums are most often identified with the ablity to 'talk to dead people'. It is not a conversation at all. Those who channel, or use the host body, do not speak with the medium. The medium is often unaware of what's been said by the spirit and will have little or no memory of the event.
