My Psychic Quotient

I'm currently reading Billy Roberts' 10-Step Psychic Development Programme. None-too-surprisingly, it's written by Billy Roberts (or Billy Roblets as Freya refers to him...). I met Billy for the first time a couple of weeks' ago even though he used to run a paranormal centre in Liverpool just a mile or so from the University I worked at for ten years!

I told Billy about my rather ambitious attempt to learn to become psychic (oh, and win a million dollars!) and he very kindly gave me a copy of his book on psychic development. How cool is that?

Towards the beginning of the book, in order to identify where you are on the psychic development path, your 'psychic quotient' so to speak, Billy very helpfully provides a quick test consisting of ten questions (another ten questions point to your psychic potential). I'm hoping he won't mind me copying them here so you, too, can discover your psychic quotient. All you need to do is answer 'yes' or 'no' to each question:
1. Do you feel an affinity with some people more than others?

2. Do you sometimes have strong feelings about imminent events, perhaps an inner voice telling you something is wrong?

3. Do you sometimes find yourself daydreaming in the middle of a conversation with someone, even though you are not bored?

4. Do you sometimes have vivid dreams about impending doom and disaster?

5. Do sweet or unusual fragrances sometimes remind you of someone who is dead?

6. Do you ever see images when staring at a carpet or curtains?

7. Do you sometimes think you can hear someone calling your name when you know you are alone in the house?

8. When lying in bed, do you ever feel pressure on top of the covers, as though someone were sitting on the end of the bed?

9. Have you experienced deja vu on more than one occasion?

10. When drifting off to sleep, do you see small faces passing quickly in front of you?

How many did you say 'yes' to? According to Billy, if you said 'yes' to between seven and ten of the questions above then you already have developed psychic abilities! I only said 'yes' to four of the questions, but that just means my psychic abilities simply need a little encouragement. Even if you found yourself saying 'yes' to just three or less of the questions, there is still hope... with patience and determination you'll still meet your psychic potential!

That million dollars is mine for the taking...


  1. I got five so I'm more psychic than you.

    Aren't there normally 12 steps - or would that just imply that psychic abilities were an addiction to beat?

    Anyway, a novel way to blag a free book. I hope he signed it for you.

  2. I answered yes to 1 2 6 7 8 9 and 10 although I dont see faces quickly in front of me..I see a sort of long film of people I dont

    Oooh me a bit psychic..well more than Tom

  3. My quotient is sadly low and if I ever saw images in the carpet I would book it in for a good clean!

  4. Oh ha ha That is good enn.

    Well,seems like so far its me that has the most psychic potential going by Matthew and Toms la la la la.

  5. I don't mean to brag, but I got 9/10 so I must have psychic potential!There was only question 10, that I couldn't relate to, but I am not sure that I would want to see "small faces passing quickly in front of me"...

  6. Get you lot with your high PQ's! If you beat me to that million dollars, be sure to spend it wisely!

  7. ooh I posted a reply and it never showed..oh

    Seems like its Donna who is going to take the million so far.

    Just wondering though..if we are a bit psychic why dont we know if we could take the million or la.

  8. I agree with the above comments. I was supposed to see a psychic next week, but she had to cancel due to unforeseen circumstances.

  9. If I win the million dollars I will spend it on Freya and we will have afternoon tea with Billy Roblets!
