The “Are You Psychic?” Test

Dr. Dorothy McCoy who has a degree in Counseling Psychology published an excellent book in 2005--The Ultimate Book of Personality Tests.

There are over 50 tests in this book. Some ponder the questions: Are you a Witch? Can you put a love spell on your boyfriend? What type of car would you be? Are you an experience seeker?

From the titles above it is obvious McCoy’s book is entertaining, but it also has more in-depth tests that reflect a person’s: people skills, sensuality, emotional state, fears, and personality type just to name a few.

I bought this book for McCoy’s Chapter 6. In this chapter, she provides tests that determine if one is open to spiritual possibilities, etc.

I love her test in this the section that asks, “Do You See Things That Go Bump in the Night?”

Here it is--It is for entertainment so take it with a grain of salt...

Are You Psychic?

Answer Yes or No

1Have you ever known the phone was going to ring before it rang?
2.    Have you ever felt a sudden chill in the room, when there was no apparent reason?
3.    Have you ever seen anything that could not be explained by science or logic?
4.    Have you ever felt you were being watched when you were alone?
5.    Have you ever had a vision or dream that came true?
6.    Have you ever had a successful session with a Ouija board?
7.    Do you have an open mind about the supernatural?
8.    Would you refuse to spend the night in a “haunted” house?
9.    Do you meditate?
10.                  Have you retained the childlike ability simply to “accept” new experiences, free of distorting preconceptions?
11.                  Are you more likely to make decisions using your “gut feeling” than your “thinking logic?”
12.                  Have you ever been told that psychic ability runs in your family?
13.                  Do you wear black 90% (or more) of the time?


Give yourself 1 point for each Yes answer. Leave question 13 out McCoy was just kidding.

0--4 Yes answers:

Your psychic ability is not fully developed. Your personality leans toward the more rational and pragmatic, and you prefer to see “phenomena” that can be explained by logic.

5--8 Yes answers:

You are coming along nicely. Your score indicates you are open to unique experiences and you esteem an open, inquisitive mind. You may have experienced the supernatural.

9--12 Yes answers:

It is certainly possible that you have psychic ability. Your score is encouraging. You, as well as the last group, may have experienced the supernatural.

McCoy uses one of my favorite quotes before and after this test.

“When you have eliminated all which is impossible, then whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth.”
