International Psychics Association
The International Psychic Association from Australia includes professional psychics from Australia, New Zealand, Malaysia, and the United States. However, this is mostly an Australian association with (so far) one psychic in New Zealand, Malaysia, and the United States apiece. The International Psychic Association. The fledgling association seeks to ensure that psychics are who they say they are before allowing a psychic to join. Strangely enough, this is under the membership benefits; there are no actual listed benefits to joining.
In order to join, one thing a member must do is get three affidavits from three clients stating that the psychic gave accurate readings. This is problematic to me, since the affidavits can be faked, and because it means the psychic has to breach standards of good taste and business etiquette by soliciting an affidavit from their clients attesting to the accuracy of the reading they got. This is similar to asking hot dog cart vendors to get affidavits from three customers who said their hot dogs tasted good, because even a fake psychic could be accurate up to 20% of the time just by random guessing, and if you do fifteen cold readings, chances are that three of those will be deemed accurate. Thus, I’m not so sure just how accurate any of the psychics in the directory might be.
Professional memberships are $75 a year, and the International Psychic Association will deem you a good psychic. Associate listings, which aren’t available yet, are for non-psychics, who presumably still want to be contacted by people on the Internet, I guess.
- International Psychics Association is earnest in trying to promote genuine psychics.
- International Psychics Association has been around for about fourteen years.
- International Psychics Association is trying to reach out to an international audience.
I’m not sure why someone would join International Psychic Association, and I loathe the idea of soliciting clients for notarized affidavits.
