You have the power to make the Taj Majal disappear in front of your audience’s eyes (if you’re David Copperfield). Being a magician makes you seem like a powerful person to the average Joe. People will look at you with breathless wonder and try to figure out how you did it. Not to mention that paranormal magicians use the “supernatural” to perform tricks. Wanna talk to your Aunt Ida who died a month before you were born? Certain paranormal magicians claim to use special powers to talk to the dead. Talk about powerful. Some of these magicians refer to themselves as mentalists. Mentalists pretend to read thoughts, talk to the dead, and control minds. There is actually another term frequently used for paranormal magicians: con artists. At least this variety of con artist actually entertains you while taking your money.
