Psychologist, also known as memory artist and mnemonic artist, is a genre of magicians. Their form of entertainment is mainly based on the simulation of supernatural phenomena, which is one of the five aspects of magic. It shows the predictive or telepathic ability of z. This part is based on memory skills, suggestion techniques, number skills/fast arithmetic etc., but also on standard magic techniques
The term psychologist is a development of the term “mind reader”. The first known mind reader was the American magician C. A. George Newmann (1880-1952), who called himself a “mind reader” and “master of spiritual miracles”. His ideas resemble seminars organized by college professors. However, these programs are not boring lectures, but provide plenty of entertainment and humor. Harry Kahne (Harry Kahne) (1895-1955) was one of the first recognized magicians to claim to be a psychiatrist, and he was also known as the “incomparable psychiatrist.”
Since about 1929, the American magician Theodore Annemann has used the term “psychic”. In Europe, the first to deal with spiritual magic was the Briton Chan Canasta in the 1940s. He first appeared on BBC television in 1951 performing spiritual magic. In all, Canasta can be credited with participating in more than 300 TV shows as a spiritualist. He was also a guest on the legendary Ed Sullivan talk show. In Germany, spiritual magic did not develop into an independent form of expression until the middle of the 20th century. An important role was played by the magician Punx, whose evening show was divided into four acts and Alessandro Cagliostro opened a separate area for psychological magic. From about 1980 onwards, the Berlin magician Ted Lesley demonstrated more and more spiritual magic and often used the term “spiritualist” for himself.
