If you’ve read the “About Me” page on this blog, you know that I can read minds.
Reading minds on the Internet is easy. But I recently learned that I can read minds in person, too.
It was a conversation at a conference that lead to my revelation.
Sam: I see you’ve got a Ph.D. What’s it in?
Me: Industrial/Organizational Psychology.
Sam: You’re a psychologist?
Me: Yes. I can read your mind, too. I know what you’re thinking right now. You don’t believe I can do it and you’re trying to come up with a question to prove that I can’t.
Sam: Yes, you’re right. [chuckle]
Me: The only problem is that I can only read your mind once. Right now you’re thinking “Ah! This is proof that she can’t read minds”.
Me: Huh, looks like I just proved us both wrong.
It was an entertaining exchange and an epiphany for me. I really didn’t know I could do it twice.
Of course, I know what you’re thinking – I didn’t really read anyone’s mind.
Hey! I can do it three times now!
May the farce be with you!
