Psychic Medium Test – Failed Results

Psychic Medium Test

We thought we’d cover a psychic medium test carried out by researchers at Goldsmiths, University of London. We offer fantastic psychic training in certain modules on this site but we felt it was important to cover both sides of the coin (so to speak!).

The two psychics covered in this article claimed to have been the ‘real deal’ but seem to have come up short when tested by the scientific community.

All of us have psychic abilities but not all of us are truthful about their effectiveness…

The Psychic Medium Test

The researchers at Goldsmiths finally came to the conclusion that the pair of psychics they were investigating were not what they seemed.

Simply put they did not exhibit any special psychic powers.

The challenge was set up and took place over Halloween 2012. The psychic medium test was an attempt to investigate whether professional mediums could demonstrate their psychic powers in a controlled setting.

The Psychic Medium Test

The test was built so that it could monitor whether the pair of psychics were able to deduce certain things. In this instance the pair were invited to deduce something about individuals they had never met before.

As well as this they were not able to see or even hear the individuals they were making the deductions about.

Psychic Energy Levels

Chris French is the head of the Anomalistic Psychology Research Unit at Goldsmiths and he carefully constructed the tests.

The main task of this specialized test was for the two psychic individuals to pen something down about five of these strangers who were placed behind a screen.

Once they had made psychic notes on each of these strangers the writings were gathered and offered to the strangers themselves. They were then asked to identify themselves through what had been written down. Only one out of the five strangers managed to identify themselves through the text they had read.

Professor French was adamant that the test was set up fairly and correctly stating that:

“This was a result that was entirely consistent with the operation of chance alone”

It didn’t take long for one of the mediums, Patricia Putt, to have her say on the matter. She claimed that the psychic medium test was not really up to standard as she required certain things for her psychic powers to work efficiently.

She said that in order for her to get strong and reliable readings she needed to work face-to-face with people. She also claimed that doing these sort of readings without hearing the individuals voice results in a low connection.

According to Patricia Putt psychic energy levels would be to low in the setting created for the experiment. She also claimed that her success rates were usually second to none. She deduced that the entire psychic medium test was designed to confirm the researchers’ preconceptions – it was not designed to look into her psychic ability!


Patricia Putt feels that scientists are very closed-minded and believe all psychics should be tarred with the same brush.

She also admits there are A LOT of fraudsters out there looking to make a quick buck and they seem to tarnish the reputation of the ‘real’ psychics.

The test was backed by Michael Marshall of the Merseyside Skeptics Society. He feels that the results of the psychic medium test show us that these so called psychics “aren’t based in reality”.

So what are your opinions on these two psychics – did they simply fail to pass this scientific test or were they victims of a single minded community?

  1. I being a psychic medium myself feel that the scientific community doesn’t know or understand how these gifts work for each and every individual that claims to be a psychic medium or psychic. There really isn’t a tool to measure someones gift or the outcome. It also depends on situation and how the subject feels.

    Dr. Gary Schwartz, has been doing research with research mediums for a long time. Read up on his findings.

    1. Hi Freddie, nice to hear from you. We agree that science all to often feels the need to label things neatly to make sense of them. Unfortunately we could not gather more information on this story – we would of loved to have found out more about the other psychic tested and what type of parameters were used during the test itself. Great to hear a psychic’s take on things – hope to hear from you again soon Freddie 🙂
