Do psychics trick people... or is that just something the skeptics, cynics and debunkers want us to believe?
Truthfully? SOME psychics certainly use tricks. I'd be lying to say that I haven't encountered readers who seemed to be more skilled in asking leading questions, than actually providing genuine intuition, information or insight. But honestly, fake "psychics" who rely on trickery or deceit for their readings are very easy to spot.
They often throw out broad generalities, rather than specifics.
If they DO offer specific information, it's only after reverse engineering their way to it by asking a lot of general questions first. (such as throwing out letters of the alphabet, and then finding a common name that fits)
Cold reading is certainly a form of trickery and deceit, and simply involves reading your body language or appearance, and deducing facts about you that are pretty easy to establish (age, marital situation, socioeconomic background, etc).
One of the EASIEST ways to avoid getting a deceptive reading is to do it by phone! (as cold reading, especially body language and appearance driven deductions are very difficult, if not impossible)
The absolute easiest way to avoid getting tricked during a psychic reading is actually to prepare for the reading, like you would for any other important meeting.
Write down a few questions.
Have concrete GOALS for what you want to get out of the reading.
Make a short list of important things in your life that a good psychic, or accurate empath should know
Do your due diligence before you call, or visit a psychic as well. (read some reviews, check out some ratings, and see what other people have reported along the way)
Remember though... DON'T overdo it, either. I've seen people spend weeks or months reading ratings, reviews and write ups of different psychics and services, and to be totally honest with you... this is NOT a good expenditure of your time. (as the best readings are a function of rapport, and connection, and the only way to know if you have that is to actually speak to the reader one on one!)
Lastly... enjoy yourself! A good psychic reading should be fun and entertaining as well. (and if you choose properly, it will be... I promise!)
