Faerie, I think you’ve been holding out on us.  I think you’re actually a spy from the dark side, not a sceptic, and your mission is to win all of us over to the woo-woo team’s side! Wink

Its my Mother's fault, I was inundated by this shit since I was two, I had my first personal reading at age 4, and one a year after that, it increased to two a year at age 13 and in between I saw some other quack who "balanced" my energies on some or other gadget - that one stopped when at age 16 I stuck bubblegum into the electronics and he refused to see me after that (I was a wee bit rebellious at that point and the crap was getting a bit much to deal with).

I have lots of stories about the woo-side if anybody has the time or inclination to listen....  Evil

Then it’s quite remarkable that you’ve seen through this nonsense and rid yourself of it.  Hats off to you, girl!

Hmm, Tarynv123, I do hope you’re aware that Faerie’s “reading” was tongue-in-cheek and that you’re just playing along with the game.  If not, I suggest you read up on the so-called Barnum/Forer Effect.

In that case, you might still be interested in reading about the Barnum/Forer Effect.  ( It may not be obvious but that light-blue text is a link that you can click on.  It will take you to a webpage describing the Barnum/Forer Effect.)

I predict:

1. You will soon have a new kitty, 'coz life is not complete without a kitty or two. A white one maybe, all fluffy and white like when you wash your clothes in New! Surf wif Superblue.

2. You will join the army as your career, and learn to kill strangers for fun.

I'm more of a teleopsychic, so I can sense more about your personality than your physical surrounds. But I'll try.

You have dark hair and wear glasses. You are not from South Africa - over the sea far to the north-west somewhere. You have been through some kind of serious sickness. You have brothers, but you live in a house with many people and it's hard to tell which are your siblings and which are other relatives. You like to sing. You have won an award at your school. You are a Scorpio.

Personality-wise, you have a great need for other people to like and admire you. You have a tendency to be critical of yourself. You have a great deal of unused capacity which you have not turned to your advantage. While you have some personality weaknesses, you are generally able to compensate for them. Disciplined and self-controlled outside, you tend to be worrisome and insecure inside. At times you have serious doubts as to whether you have made the right decision or done the right thing. You prefer a certain amount of change and variety and become dissatisfied when hemmed in by restrictions and limitations. Security is one of your major goals in life.

Edit. PS. You are young and should not be wandering about internet sites you do not understand. It's an evil world out there - be careful.

Oh dear. Taryn, please, sit down and listen. You are young - 14 or 15 ( my sums ain't that good ) and YOU SHOULD NOT BE WANDERING AROUND SITES YOU DO NOT UNDERSTAND. Now listen.

I am NOT a psychic. There ARE NO psychics. The personal information in the first part of my post is available to anyone ( including paedophiles and stalkers and god-knows-what ) merely by Googling your nick. How did I know I had the correct Tarynv123 - by what you said about the fire. Your nick leads to your cancer testimony, your name, your ex-school: from there to where you live is just a small jump.

The personality bit was merely a copy from the Wikipedia page Mefiante referred you to above, and your reaction verifies the Barnum/Forer Effect. It is nonsense - just a pile of hooey.

I am sorry to have done this to someone so young, but you might learn from it, and be less trusting of strangers.


DO NOT BELIEVE THE RUBBISH TOLD TO YOU BY STRANGERS ON THE NET. Please. For your own safety. There are BAD people out there ( rwenzori included ).

PS. Get another kitty. Kitties are good.

PPS. Don't join the army - it's just an invitation for crazy foreigners to shoot at you with high-powered rifles. Which is really not fun.
