Not much of a consensus.

Thank you all for the response. The purpose for this was just to get a sense of what the majority of people picked. I have done this for different people, and have found that there is a difference in the frequency of certain numbers picked between men and women. And also between different age groups.

There's a principle in mind-reading that uses this effect of most-popular choices.
The best way to utilise it, is to get a copy of the family fortunes board game. They have a list of census that they took for popular choices. Choose the ones that have a majority in the pickings, and work a trick around them.

Many tricks utilize this method already, and I recall a trick called killer elite, which had the prediction written on the most popular object / number chosen. (3)
There is also a trick which uses Las Vegas Casinos, since most people choose the Rio. The card they choose was forced by asking them to name a casino, and it was written on the back.

I developed a perfect mind-reading trick which utilizes this method, along with a couple of others, all psychological based.
Its on this forum on another thread, and in my book 'Body Tricks'.

70, unfourtunately there seems to be no pattern other than a 7 in it. You could act like you're having trouble doing the reading and say you only make out one of the digits, being 7. You could still be wrong, but who cares. Just turn it into a joke "Sorry I should've put my inner-eye glasses on" or an even worse joke.

Yeah, I sometimes do a number between 1-1000 and look for someone with a cross on their necklace and say that there are too many digits, but I am picking up some 7's. I am usually right.

23 is usually my choice, though 77 is the next one I'd choose, go figure.
