Can You Figure Out This Card Trick? [Video]


If you have never heard of Richard Wiseman, you’re missing out.

He’s a British psychologist and author, known for his research into ‘quirky’ human behavior. His book Quirkology is one of the most entertaining books on human behavior you’ll ever read. It discusses, amongst others, the world funniest joke, if people can spot a lie, and how deception works.

This video (found on his must-follow blog which has amazing examples of illusions) is an example of the last category. It’s a card trick and you know you’re being deceived, but can you spot how it’s done?

And, did you figure it out?
