First, I was constantly being asked by people to informally "read their minds" and secondly, I was anxious to get my business cards into the hands of interested persons..."

Fredric Kolb - Business Card Telepathy

So remember, the needs of a mentalist haven't changed that much, and many would perform socially to harvest interest/leads/get their business cards handed out...

It tickled me that the above is now nearly 100 years old and is still relevant, AND a nifty little effect still...
