if I like the effect I will surely want to learn and perform it too.

There is so much wrong with this thought and perception. This is a great example of a magician's way of thinking.

Also thank you two for taking my post completely out of its originally intended context and adjusting it to fit your own thoughts, rather than hearing the actual point.

Well, way out of my waters here, but I have always enjoyed a bit of some good mentalism. Smile

I think that at least one of the best mentalism effects I've ever seen is perhaps the one I still do from time to time from my journey, The Hoy Book Test, by David Hoy, aka Dr. Faust.

Man. when I first saw it done, it baffled me to no end. After learning and presenting it in various places like libraries, book stores, news stands and in quite a few offices and people's own homes, it has stood the test of time for me as an impromptu giant. It is so simple but guarantees wonder & amazement everytime. Not that a lot of the other effects mentioned here aren't as miraculous, but this little gem has always commanded repeat performances from all that I have ever done it for. I don't think I saw it mentioned in this thread (and I'm sure there are deeper holes to be dug in this arena), but it truly deserves to be, despite its perfect simplicity.
