Last night I watched a mentalist perform in a show! 😀 He’s called Jose Ahonen. It was really interesting and fun. And unbelievable. He could read people’s minds… For those who doesn’t know what a mentalist is: A magician performs magic using items (birds, playing cards…). A mentalist performs “magic” reading people’s minds, hypnosis etc.
There were some hypnosis involved. He hypnotized a woman so she could not read! He also told stories about psychological experiments and how to tell if a person is a liar! 😀 That might be useful. A lot of audience members where randomly selected to be on the stage to take part in different experiments or games. He was able to draw an image that a woman had drawn minutes before, just by staring at the woman’s eyes. He was also able to write down a long word that a man randomly chose from a book. He asked questions about the word, but the man was not allowed to speak. He could just answer the questions in his mind.
The show was supposed to start at 8 pm, but started 15 minutes later. It ended at 10 pm and there was a break halfway into the show.
Most of the seats in the little cinema room was sold, so may be 150-200 people or more. I don’t know how many people can be in the room at the same time, how many chairs there are.
