The word psychic tends to get a hugely mixed response. Some people are totally sceptical about the existence of any kind of psychic ability, even though they will openly talk about following hunches or gut feels. Others believe that psychic ability exists but think that it’s something that only a few people actually possess.
Are you psychic? Do you think you are but aren’t sure? Or are you absolutely certain that you aren’t? Take this fun quiz and find out.

Now add up the number of A, B and Cs and see what your score reveals
I strongly believe that we are all born with psychic or intuitive skills, but we don’t all necessarily trust them or develop them. You are very much in tune with your psychic abilities and use your sixth sense just as much as any other. A big part of developing our psychic skills is embracing that we have them rather than pushing them aside or drowning them out. You are comfortable with your abilities, even if you don’t feel the need to label them or explain them to anyone else. Keep your eyes peeled for new articles that I post all the time on how to develop your psychic skills and how to actually put them to best use. Along with that, I’ll carry on bringing you all the latest research as scientists are increasingly dipping their toes into the spiritual world and discovering some fascinating things.
You probably know that you are intuitive but you wobble in and out of trusting it. I won’t say using it, because it clearly is managing to get through sometimes, even though you possibly ignore it and then later regret it Build your confidence by starting to keep a journal in which you record your dreams and any hunches or insights that you have. Over time, you will begin to build a record that will inspire you to trust what ability you have and also help you develop it. The articles I post here will help you work on what psychic skills you have. You’ll probably be very reassured by the research that I talk about that is finding out a few fascinating things about psychic ability as you’ll see it’s something that we all have and some scientists are now taking seriously.
It probably comes as no surprise that your score reveals that you don’t consider yourself to be psychic or have psychic abilities. If it’s not something that’s important to you, that’s absolutely fine, but you might be squashing down a powerful, intuitive side of yourself that could enrich your life hugely if you gave it a bit of space to breathe. If you’re a bit scared about where it might take you, don’t panic! You don’t have to overturn your life and run off and live in a cave with a Tarot deck and a bag of runes. Remember that an impressive number of very credible scientists and highly creative people use their intuitions and instincts with powerful results. You can begin by just paying attention the next time you get a strong gut feel or hunch about something. You don’t have to act on what you think it’s telling you, but make a note as you might begin to discover that it does have a big part to play in everyday life.
