One of the most common tricks of mentalism is called the “Pencil trick.” The mentalist asks a subject to write a number on a piece of paper and tells them to think of the color of the last letter. The spectator is told to write any number on the pencil and then the mentalist turns around and shows him a normal pencil. When the spectator realizes what is going on, they are amazed.

The first trick in the pyramid is to ask the person to draw a circle with a triangle inside of it. This is often done by the mentalist guessing the color of the object. Usually, mentalists use indirect hints to make their audience pick the object. The next trick is to bind the subject in a room with 5 objects, and then have them think of the objects. As they walk in the room, they will subconsciously select the objects.
The next trick involves misdirection. Most of the time, people will get the answer 4 when they think of the letter D. However, if they skip the letter D and think of the letter E, they will get the answer elephant. The reason is that the elephant is associated with the color grey, which is what the mentalist wants to do. This is an important technique for influencing the mind. The Grey Elephant trick is a classic example of a mentalism illusion that is easy to perform.
In this trick, the mentalist listens to his friend’s head and body. Then, he counts the number of times the mind clenches. The mentalist then draws the answer to the question. To make the trick more interesting, the mentalist asks the spectator to draw two shapes, one of which is a picture of a human being. The mentalist then compares the shapes and predicts the answer.
Another trick of mentalism is the ‘Pencil test’. The mentalist tells the audience to imagine a picture of an elephant. They are then shown a picture of an elephant. The mentalist then makes the objects move, while the words inside the circle are written in the air. Then, the ‘Pencil’ is written on the cards. This trick can even be done by a mentalist who has no idea how to use a pencil.
Some tricks of mentalism require the use of a pen. A pencil with a sharp point is used to draw a picture that is impossible to read. This trick is known as ‘pencil test’. If a pen is held near an elephant, it means that the person has seen it. If it is, it means that the person is looking at it. Then, it has a different color.
