NEW! The Internet Telepathy Test

Can you feel when someone wants to get in touch with you online? This test takes only about 10 minutes, and involves two friends or family members.

In this test you and one other person see a series of pictures for 20 seconds each, and at the same time hear some music. Depending on a randomizer, in some trials your partner is shown the same picture and hears the same music as you; in others, you see a different picture and hear different music. At the end of each 20-second period both of you guess whether the other person has been looking at the same picture or not. This test takes about 5 minutes.
