Tarot card cold reading
'Cold reading' is the collective term applied to an array of skills, abilities and linguistic and mental tools that help both discover information without the subject realise they are disclosing it, and manipulate their perception of their memories.
It can be used actively by stage magicians, mentalists and mediums, psychics and clairvoyants of all varieties.
It can also be used passively - where someone has learned to use at least some of the methods subconsciously.
