Some psychics specialise in 'mail order' or remote readings, but the majority are in the business of meeting and greeting people. If the psychic is a naturally likeable person, then meeting and greeting clients presents no problem. Other psychics, less gifted with natural charisma, may employ a range of techniques designed to help first encounters go well.
There are many such techniques, and they tend to feature in books written for sales people and business negotiators. One excellent source is Nicholas Boothman's very readable book "How To Make Anyone Like You in 90 Seconds Or Less" (pee Appendix note 3).
A full and comprehensive treatment of this subject is beyond the scope of this book. However, I would like to mention what I believe to be the single most important and effective technique of all: mind scripts.
A mind script is simply a short, simple and positive affirmation about the meeting. You mentally recite this to yourself as you prepare to meet someone, and continue to do so as the initial conversation gets under way. Here's a simple example:
"I like you, you like me, this is going to go really well".
A young man embarking on that roller-coaster of hazard and joy, the 'first date', might usefully run a script that says something like this:
"I like you, I'm the kind of guy you like, and we'll have a good time".
When you 'run' a mind script, you automatically make a big difference to the way you come across to the other person. A mind script can affect your posture and 'body language', tone of voice, facial expression, gestures and much else besides. It is more or less impossible for the other person not to be affected by your choice of mind script.
In my opinion, mind scripts are very useful and effective. As such, I would not be at all surprised if a few psychics have learned to use them when meeting clients.
