PsyConText is extremely easy to perform. But some basic presentation skills will be needed. However this may not be for absolute beginners. So consider yourself cautioned. No sleights. No pre-show. No stooges. Almost self-working. You can make a memorable mark on the audience minds. Here the performer plays a special role, that of a MENTALINGUIST.
The participant is given a notepad filled with a lot of stories. Stories which are very special and very memorable and very cute. These are very short stories, about 50-60 stories in all. The participant is now asked to open to any page and choose a story from that page mentally. Then the performer accurately divines the complete story chosen by the participant. This can be repeated instantly with a different outcome, with the same participant or a different one.
In another routine, the participant is asked to focus on any major word in her chosen story and the performer accurately divines not only the chosen story but also the word being focused on.
As a finale, the performer is also able to divine the name of the place where that particular story was noted and the serial number of the bill spent on that particular day.
There is a one-time simple preparation of the notepad which should not take more than 30-40 minutes. But once done, this will last you many years for many memorable performances.
A total of 6 routines are explained. Also included is a complete 4 phase Mentalinguist Act of 15-20 minutes which includes the theme, patter and detailed scripting.
Updated with an additional seventh and eighth routine.
"I just wanted to drop you a note to say that I've bought a lot of your stuff and really enjoy the effects. When I got PsyConText yesterday, knowing how good your material is, I didn't even fully read the presentation before diving into preparing the notebook. Needless to say, I think that it is your best effort yet--the micro-story idea is brilliant--and I can't wait to perform it. I think that it will be a real reputation maker." – Chris Fisanick

WOW...Psycontext is pure genius. An ultimate culmination of multiple art forms like story-telling, literature, psychology, mentalism and magic. Tremendous emotional impact on the audience. And
yet very smooth and simple in terms of methods. Very much like vintage wine - a satisfying experience - for both performer and audience.
