    yeah do this. it sounds like fun...try to think something random like popsicle and try to get the person you're talking with to say it.

    i have had that weird crazy coincendence where i've been thinking of someone all day...like my mother...thinking i need to call her because it's been awhile and get home from work and she calls me...sometimes with friends too...is that similar to what you're talking about?

    If you can control people with your mind, then your mind can be controlled by other people.

    On this path madness lies.

    Well I know that some ENFP's seem to have this to INFJ's and I kind of understood that. But this has just got out of my hands, and its not cute anymore. It's a bit painful that people seem to understand u so easily and u try to understand how they could have understood you.
    If you aren't doing it on purpose, then how is it control? It is out of your control. The only control you have is pattern perception, but perceiving a pattern does not mean you are causing it to happen. It's like if I won the lotto twice in a row - that doesn't mean I'm 'lucky' or 'special', it means that I got the right number twice, and it also means that there was a series of events that led up to me winning the lotto twice.

    Plus, coincidences tend to be perceived readily because people are often on the same "wave length". If you are in the same situation with someone, like seeing a movie or riding in a car, you'll probably be thinking similar thoughts about your environment.

    I think what you are talking about is probability. Like for instance tomorrow I know my mom will call me to ask me what Im doing before 4pm, because thats when the soccer game starts tomorrow. Plus I know it will probably be either at around 11am - 12 or at 2pm, because thats when shes going from work. So it is probability. On other times I have known when she calls within 5 minutes aswell but I attribute it to probability not because of some psychic connection.

    And here I was expecting a thread about manipulating people with words .

    Possibilities:

    1. No this cannot happen and what you described is simply coincidence.
    2. Yes, your mind is actually influencing them in some way.
    3. Have you ever considered the possibility that it's not you who is influencing them, but the other way round? Like, for somebody who believes in psychics, they might say that you're simply perceiving events that will happen in the future so it's the future event that influences your thoughts, and then after you think them, they happen?

    Could you give us a few more examples?

    You're not controlling people with your mind, that's for sure, but it's highly possible that you're telepathic with certain inviduals. It does happen sometimes between people who are close, and it happens to a lot of people. They've done research on this sort of thing at Duke University in their Parapsychology Lab, so don't listen to the haters.

    I mean, it's healthy to be skeptical of course, and again, YOU'RE DEFINITELY NOT CONTROLLING PEOPLE WITH YOUR MIND but you could be empathetically connected with certain loved ones.
