And yet people believe this guy has some kind of powers. He gets as much right as anyone could get right by simple random chance guessing. His cold reading technique in this video is just awful.
I found this video of Theresa on Anderson Cooper - unedited! Didn't watch the whole thing (very long), but it's clear in the first reading that she's using plenty of cold reading tricks. She sure doesn't score as neatly here as on her heavily scripted and edited show!http://www.andersonc...erson-audience/
(sorry, can't isolate the video, so posted the link to the site. It's the first video you see)ETA:
Alright, I watched the whole 25 minutes and, man, she was 60% wrong at the very least. The last reading with the mom and daughter was just awful.
Also, in one of the episodes this week, Theresa is with a client at home, and she asks her about a handkerchief that belonged to her dad or something. Don't remember exactly, but the client says something about a handkerchief with the words "I Love You" embroidered on it. Well, Theresa then holds up the pad of paper she writes on to show the client she had just scribbled "I love you" moments earlier. But then Theresa gasps and says "OMG, I just got chills" ... and I was thinking, errm, why? Why does that give you chills, Theresa, when all day long you are bombarded by messages from departed spirits? Hmmm, that was very telling. She freaked herself out because she got something right
, for a change, without it being a product of her cold reading. Yeah.
