Have you ever been to one? Were you impressed or unimpressed?
yes, once. I liked her but didn't really believe some of the (future) things she spoke of. A few years later, some of what she said actually came true. I would probably never go back, but it was interesting anyway.
Informally a few times. It was educational and gave me a lot to think over. Being as how nothing is written into stone, I was able to manipulate the outcome differently by what I was doing at that moment, thereby nullifying the predicted outcome.
I guess since I understand the basics of psychic readings and predictions (50% intuition, 50% therapy), I never see the future as being unchangeable. Readings are like Cliff Notes of your life, giving you an overview of what might happen if you continue doing what you're doing. Most people don't understand that they DO have the power to change things.
I accompanied my friend for her reading while in college. The psychic's name was Cookie & I had low expectations, but she was fine, even though my friend didn't hear what she wanted! It was all I could do not to ask what she saw for my future, but I wasn't there for me & I certainly couldn't afford the money. It was fun, but in the end, it was of no more consequence, other than giving my friend a different perspective on events. I find all of it interesting & most people love to hear about themselves & discuss their problems, so psychics will always be popular.
Once at a fair but wasn't impressed, the woman was rather indignant when I would neither confirm nor deny her forecasts. I recently attempted to contact a more professional one though but decided to spend the $300 on several toys instead. Best decision ever made without advice!
