Customer rank: +2Read four minds at once!
The performer shows a chart consisting of five colored ESP symbols. He invites four people to participate. Each participant is asked to just think of an ESP symbol shown on the chart. The participants write nothing down, they just think of a symbol. There are no restrictions. Each person could be thinking of a different symbol, or they all could be thinking of the same symbol. They do not share their thoughts with each other. The performer begins to get impressions and calls out three symbols. He says, "If I have called out the symbol you are thinking of, please close your eyes and draw the symbol in your mind."
The performer then tells the participants to open their eyes and clear their minds. He then asks them to concentrate on the colors of their symbols. The performer then begins to call out colors he is getting strong impressions of. He says, "If I have called out the color you are thinking of, please close your eyes and visualize it in your mind."
The performer does not ask any questions. The participants say nothing; they just close their eyes and think. The performer takes an ESP deck and hands each participant a face-down card. Only after each
person is given a face-down card does the performer ask the participants to reveal their thought-of symbols. Amazingly, when the face-down ESP cards are shown, they match each participant's
For a stunning climax, the performer points to several people in the audience and asks if they were also thinking of a symbol. With no questions or fishing, the performer then reveals the symbols just
thought of by members of the audience.

Reviews from noted magicians and mentalists
"I forecast that "Four Told" will become a classic of mentalism -- it's that direct, engaging, and inexplicable. A satisfyingly devious method is at work, and the straightforward presentation apparently
negates trickery of any kind." - Jerry Dunn
"Brilliant! Brilliant! I never thought it would work this easily. ****ing Brilliant!" - Greg Acre
"Absolutely Brilliant. If I were to find any fault with "FOUR TOLD" it is that it is W-A-Y underpriced. It is worth many times the selling price to the working mentalist, it will DEFINITELY become a regular
feature in my show!" - Dick Christian
"Four Told is brilliantly clever and mind boggling to any spectator! A perfect Mentalism effect to inject into any stage or close-up performance." - Jason Ring
