Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, step right up! Amaze your audience with the divining power of your fingertips.
You can become a master of illusion with this simple (yet convincing) trick. Just enlist the help of a discreet assistant, practice a bit, and get ready to wow the crowd. And remember, a magician never reveals her secrets.
Have the group choose a number between 1 and 5 while you're out of the room.
When you return, move from one person to the next placing your fingers on their temples and reading their minds. Announce the number.
The Secret: When you get to your assistant she subtly clenches her teeth the chosen number of times, which you'll feel in her temples.
