Using a single diary and a greeting card (pre-printed ready to use), you are ready to devastate your audience with a five-phase demonstration of your mindreading/precognitive skills.
The mentalist offers to demonstrate his precognitive skills. Handing his pocket diary to an audience member, they are requested to verify that each of the dates has been populated with different information. Satisfied that this is the case, they are further requested to concentrate their thoughts on any date of any month.
Not wishing for this demonstration to be dismissed as simple guess work, the mentalist removes a single colored envelope from within his pocket. He claims that this will later provide conclusive proof of his abilities.
Only then does the spectator locate their chosen date from within the diary. As the spectator silently reads the entry in their chosen date, the mentalist reminds everyone that his colored envelope was in view prior to the date being announced. The spectator is then asked to openly announce the sex of the person at their chosen entry.
It is immediately obvious that the color of the envelope matches their free selection (Hit number 1). The spectator may also verify that a different date could have easily ended with a different result.
The mentalist then slowly removes a greeting card from within the envelope and, in doing so, reveals the specific occasion to which it relates. The spectator once again confirms that this is a direct match to their chosen entry (Hit number 2). The spectator is further requested to verify that a different occasion could have easily been chosen.
The mentalist then opens the greeting card to reveal the name of the intended recipient. Amazingly, this also matches the spectator's entry (Hit number 3). The mentalist calms the audience's applause and asks the spectator whether there are specific details about the recipient pertaining to the occasion in question. The spectator confirms that there is.
The inscription upon the card is then read aloud and the spectator verifies that this information is also unique to their chosen date (Hit number 4), resulting in a huge round of applause. The card is then returned to the envelope and the mentalist offers to try one more experiment. The spectator is asked to go on an imaginary shopping trip to buy a gift for the recipient of the card. The mentalist then proceeds to identify the gift that the spectator has in mind, as well as specific details about this purchase (Hit number 5).
