Zener Cards

Description of the psychic test

Zener Cards were used by the famous parapsychologist J.B. Rhine in his studies of ESP and have now become the standard for such extra sensorial tests. There are some variations of the Zener cards test, some are using a closed deck of cards (5 groups of each 5 cards) or an open deck (each cards are randomly selected from a deck shuffled at each turns). The following test is an open deck, since a card is randomly generated from a shuffled deck every time. The card is also chosen before you have to guess. There are some feedback messages at the bottom while you do the test, you can decide to ignore them or read them during the test. Some people may perform better if they are not distracted by it. A real test requires at least 25 picks to be statistically significant and a score of 10 correct guesses or more out of 25 is required to prove some degree of psychic abilities. Statistical laws dictate that there's 1 chance in 5 of getting the card by pure chance (overall score of 5/25), along with a certain degree of variability (between 0/25 and 10/25). Scores over 10 would therefore be significant. For a thorough evaluation, one should take the test many times (10 or more) for truly conclusive results.
