Prestidigitation

This will test how you think; specifically, your ability to question the ground rules.

Try this 'ESP Test'.  You'll be asked to mentally choose a card from six offered, concentrate on it, then click on any of six buttons elsewhere on the page.  That will take you to a page showing five cards.  The one you chose won't be one of them.  Guaranteed.

The same site has a huge number of explanations contributed by visitors, but they'd all feel rather foolish if they'd spotted one simple fact.

Think about it: how could one guarantee that any one card chosen from the first page will be absent from the second?

It took about three seconds to realize that ALL the cards were changed.......

I love the explanations that insist that the ESP test got it wrong ;)
