|Year of Snake: Will it be Ominous?|

BEIJING: When I grew up and moved from Washington D.C. to Texas, I felt isolated for many years. To fill my time, I would play a game, where I would randomly pick up newspapers, magazines and other printed materials that showed people’s faces.
I would stare into the eyes of the people and visualize each personality. My hands temporarily covered the printed words. After conducting a mental analysis, I would read about the person in the photo to determine if I guessed correctly.
I would like to remind readers that this does not involve special psychic skills, just a good understanding of human nature, and since I love to read books including classic literature and biographies, my technique would improve with time.
I kept quiet about developing this mental skill until one day in college when my classmates were discussing how they felt that nobody really understood them. So I told them about my eye-reading ability. Curious and skeptical, they asked me to describe each person by looking into their eyes.
As I narrated an account of their personality, more students asked me to read into their character traits. People would claim I was a fortuneteller, because I would describe a personality and say that due to their character traits they would likely act in a certain manner under particular circumstances. Just ponder this syllogism: If A is B, and B is C then that must mean A is C.
However, I used a simple scientific technique to develop the skill and never did chants or tried to go into a trance. I based my predictions on logical assumptions, not by reading auras. Nevertheless, the ability became a useful tool as a journalist in Dallas, South Korea and China.
