One of the most common test is by use of Zener cards. This test tries to determine an individual’s ability to guess symbols in a deck of cards. The use of cards was invented by Joseph Banks Rhine when he started investigation of the existence of telepathy. He used 25 cards divided into 5 and asked his assistants to try to guess. Zener cards are the most popular choice in these tests and can also be used to test a person’s ability to send psychic images to another, and sometimes they are used to test an individual’s ability to perceive beyond the normal human senses. Zener cards have been made specifically for this purposes.
The pack of Zener cards contains 25 cards that consist of 5 cards of each symbol. The symbols are a Greek cross, a hollow square, a hollow circle, a three vertical waves a five pointed star. As part of the test, the cards are shuffled. The cards are then given to the person being tested and the person is required to determine which of the five designs the cards contain.
Outcomes of the test
The results of the test are valuated as follows based on the number of correct guesses.
If the subject scores 0-5, they are unlikely to have extra sensory perception.
If the subject manages 10-20, chances are, there could be a strong indicator of the possession of psychic powers.
And those who score 20+ out of 25, are believed to posses strong ESP and have telepathic abilities. The EAT test using Zener cards can be used to test for the existence of telepathic abilities. The test involves trying to identify which of four possible symbols has been pre-selected for you from the deck.
