Theresa Caputo (the grief vampire)gets your private information (minus cc info) from your purchased admission ticket and we demonstrate how! For her to tell you that she does not Google the information when in fact it’s her staff who take the time to Google (or pay) for your information weeks (or months) prior to her show!
Long Island Theresa Caputo struggles to save face after three failed attempts to cold read her prey! First, she asks an audience of approx. three hundred if anyone had lost a child? What are the odds (rolling my eyes)? She is firing shotgun questions hoping to strike her target.
A woman inline steps forward and tells Caputo she lost a child! Caputo will ask if the child lost was her son and the woman respond with a “no” and immediately Caputo saves face (after fail number 1) and says “oh, it was your daughter?” Lame!!!
Watch as she struggle after three failed attempts.
Caputo does what’s known in my trade as “cold reading.” The very best practitioners can pick up enough information in what seems like innocent, idle conversation to convince you that they know very specific things about you. The scientific phenomenon is called Forer effect - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia — giving credence to vague observations that seem personal.
That technique consists of simply tossing out initials, names and situations to the subject, asking casual questions while guessing, and a handful of other manipulative psychological techniques to appear to be demonstrating psychic powers.
“Is there an anniversary coming up?” “A birthday or something?” “He/she just said to me …” “He’s proud of you” and the ever-popular “Do you understand?” — to which the answer is always a nod of assent. What else is a beguiled believer to do when told: “She’s happy in Heaven?”
All of those inquiries come from Caputo, I should add.
love,love the show !!! she is so great and so is Lisa Williams

I wouldn't get that type of reading but I am interested on what it is like to experience what she does and with such speed and clarity. Other than that she is a normal Long Island wife and mother with a bubbly personality. Her family is also seemingly normal.
These TV psychics are constantly exposed and people still believe them. I don't get it.
