Today's Telepathy Results

Today was a good day, or a better day, but not really too mind-blowing.

Test 1: I said 4 6 3 ---- my test subject's original said: 4 9 2

Test 2: I said 7 3 "0 or 1" ------ my test subject's original said: 1 0 7

Test 3: I said "2 or 4" 1 0 -------- my test subject's original said: 3 1 0

Test 4: I said 7 "3 or 4" 7 --------- my test subject said: 3 0 9

Test 5: I said 5 3 6 --------- test subject said: 4 9 2

Test 6: I said 6 "8 or 3" 9 ------- test subject said: 7 1 5

Sooooo.... of six tests, we would tabulate the results like this:

0/3 ---- twice

1/3 ----- twice

2/3 ----- once

3/3 ----- once --- though it was imperfect because I had a 4th number in there.

 

What would statistical expectations be in this situation?

0/3 -----  FOUR times

1/3 ----- 1-2 times

2/3 ---- 0-1 times

3/3 ----- very unlikely

 

So, maybe you could say that I just got lucky today, that I didn't perform exceedingly too well ---- but I still felt good about it. Of course, the last time I got 3/3 wasn't too long ago, so even though I'm not perfect or even too impressive, I am doing better than statistics would have assumed.

So, yes - I am not a skilled or great mentalist, but I think I do pretty good.
