Four Told 2: Modern Symbol EditionThe psychology behind this mental feat is ingenuous and explained in great detail like Devin Knight is always doing well. The downsides are :

1. The relative complexity of all the techniques you have to remember and adjust, depending on the different possible situations are not for the beginner. You have to think fast and be alert and concentrated to do that kind of effect. If you are easily distracted and you have difficulties following a logical deduction reasoning, this is not for you.

2. This kind of effect is extremely difficult to practice in advance until you perform it on a real audience.

3. Someone wise could probably catch the method used rather easily. You are not asking questions, but telling people to do this or that depending on their choice may be perceived by many as tips for knowing who's thinking about what.

4. Limited choices to only 5 items, making less impressive than a book test or other, more diversified choice's mentalism number.

But despite those downfalls, it is as close to pure mentalism as you could get for starting a show, if you are experienced. It could be presented as a test to check who's good to transmit thoughts before going deeper into mentalism.

Overall, I highly recommend it to anyone fast minded who wants a pure-looking mentalism effect to start his show or for any performer who wants to improve his concentration in mentalism.
