How can we read someones mind

How can we read someone’s mind?

Many people have been looking for the answer to this question.
You are evidently one of them, seeing that you are reading this answer.
Many of us might have come across a moment where you:
If you have come across even a single thing from the above, then congratulations, you could get into (or simply sense) what was in the mind of another person!
Reading someone’s mind in a way means completely understanding that person, inside and out.
The basis of this understanding is on the kind and strength of bond you share with that person.
Once you get to know a person, you can slowly make out what they actually want or feel at a particular time.
We learn about their emotions, their cognitive capacities, their abilities, and basically they themselves as a whole.
Eventually, you know the person completely and subconsciously without even giving efforts.
‬ (All this, provided, the bond is continuous and of same or increasing frequency and intensity!)
This is seen in several cases in real life as well.
Also, take the example of your mother.
When you were a little baby, and your only method of communication regarding anything and everything was simply crying.
Think about how difficult it would have been in the first few months for her, to decode your language and find out if you actually are hungry or are sick or you just pooped! It was slow and gradual, but she finally did figure you out, and was able to cater to each and every of your needs despite your same crying.
It is definitely not a very easy process to understand someone completely.
But it is not entirely impossible; You just need to be able to create that bond with that someone, so pure, realistic and intense.
Remember the recipe:
As I usually would say, “The world is difficult, but not impossible.

[PS : Also, if we go on a literal sense of getting into someone’s minds, well, neurosurgeons definitely exist in this world for a reason! 😉 ]

Listen.
The person you’re thinking of is thinking about you, if only in the back of their mind, they’re thoughts are including you.
When you think of someone and you think of them thinking thoughts in the back of their minds, those thoughts they will be thinking will have to include you.
There may be some effort on their part to keep you out of their thoughts.
That’s understandable.
When you think of that person….
and you think of them thinking thoughts, you penetrate their minds antenna.
They may have a filter to quiet your voice inside them.
They may have a circuit built that shorts you straight to ground.
Either way, they’ll receive your thoughts.
You’ll receive theirs, too.
Just listen.
Listen to your thoughts and decide which of them is theirs.
They are there, you know.
They’re there in their minds and they’re there in yours.
If you both are listening to each other and speaking to each other and your filters aren’t shorting them to ground, you can pick up what they’re feeling if you try to feel what they’re trying to tell you about what they are feeling.
If you get a feeling you don’t understand, out of nowhere and suddenly you see a face or hear a voice, …
If you learn to listen to your mind, you’ll find out how to talk to people across oceans, across A sea.
You’ll feel something they feel and they’ll argue or agree.
Just listen.

They can’t.
Those who think they read my mind are wrong, and sometimes bad people.
The best you can do is to read my word without making many assumption beyond the literal things I say.
And don’t trust that what I say is what I believe.
I am often being funny in ways people who know me tell me isn’t funny.
And I hold contradictory opinions.
You might not enjoy getting to know my mind.
I am not like other people.
When I was young that was confusing and painful.
I had to break away from things to survive intellectually.
Painful process.
And I was slow to find freedom of thought.
I read a lot.
Fast, slow.
I don’t know the difference.
I was faster than others.
Still hard to break away.
And book learning must be put into action for the next many stages of real deep learning.
Action without books is often wrong.
Books without action is useless.
Even the people closest to me cannot read my mind fully, but I am very predictable.
I like things simple.
I like to eat the same thing.
I like my physical reality to be stable.
I don’t like noise.
So those close to me can adjust.
I am easy.
If you don’t bug me.
They can know what I need more than I sometimes.
Often for those most intimate, I can read their minds with enough time.
If you know the vectors you know the future.
Perhaps it is the same for some.
Normal people could say I am fucked up, and by their standards I am.
I chose to not live by their standards, and I think they should question if their standards serve them.
You can call me a freak, and I will agree without much pride or shame.
So I live in the bubble I have created:
Brian Fey's answer to Mexico: What is Bosque Village ?
And I am careful about who can enter the bubble.
People disturb me.
I expect a social contract.
I am somewhat flexible.
But as the years pass… less so.
I publish more and more about my visions for a better world; ones I might not be able to live up to.
I am no guru, and don’t want that job if I have to show up to work on demand and look good.
I will be contradictory and difficult.
Anyone who wished to follow and support me on my strange path will have my empathy.
And I will support them on their path.
There is no one way.
Some people want to follow, and that is ok.
I am becoming ok with it.
I am learning to respect followers.
But my standards are high.
I am pretty anti-authoritarian and don’t want to be turned into a leader on a pedestal.
I have to protect the forest and my personal space and peace.
Perhaps I need people to help with that.
I am slow to say it, but I do need help.
If you like the vision, apply.
Women should be cautious not to have their heart hurt by me.
I am honest and I warn them.
Don’t fall in love with a Brian who does not exist.
Sweet visions are not supported by reality.
In some rare conditions, you can get close to me, but don’t have any expectations of a Brian you made up in your head.
Don’t let your expectations hurt you.
I am just a fancy dork with an unusual collection of interests.
I am closed, and sometimes open, but no bullshit is welcome.
Answer this: Is love a lie? Oddly enough, some women have “loved me”.
Some have kept me alive.
I appreciate loyalty.
I don’t like the word love, but my life is all about Love.
“Loving” me is apparently not easy.
I am nicer to other people than I am to myself.
But I am wary.
I am fine with having fans, but don’t get weird or stalkish.
Default answer is “no”.
I guess it is pointless to warn psychopaths to stay away.
Most seem unaware of who they are.
I am learning self-defense in various forms.
People can apply to come here; Pay their own way and serve the culture here.
I don’t come with the deal.
I don’t owe anyone intimacy and am not a gigolo.
People who try to bully me with their “truth” and “spirituality”; I will disappoint them.
Evangelism is not welcome, though reason is.
I do listen to all but the most negative people who get tuned out afterward I listen.
Bullies come in many forms for all of us.
Abuse happens.
I hope we all can make the way clear for us to blaze our personal trails.
Be your own guru, but don’t pamper yourself or fall for simple bigotry and prejudice.
Don’t get ego-spiritual.
People who think they know everything, don’t.
There is no enlightenment, but if you walk in the dark, you should have light.
Don’t fall down too often, and when you do, learn from it.
Get a light.
Only young toddlers are cute, the adult spoiled toddlers are just ignorant adult babies who need care and their selfish violence causes more problems.
Look in the mirror with both judgement and love.
We are all similar.
We are all different.
Brian Fey's answer to How can you tell if a rock is heavy or light? Pointless distinctions there.
No one can read your mind.
You cannot even read your own mind.
We are lost in ourselves even if we have high level of self awareness.
It is not possible to know who you are.
Other people know more than you do about who you are, in their own conflicted delusional ways.
They are wrong too; right too.
The “you” will never be known.
But if you were good, you will have created good, and for a time people will remember it.
Ripples of goodness can radiate from your life.
Perhaps they will affect generations.
You will still be born, do stuff, then die.
It will all be over.
The mind will be gone and your molecules with spread becoming part of the all else.
You become part of everything which was around you.
Good luck,
Good luck in the work you do.
I do hope to serve to inspire.
It doesn’t matter if we agree or not.
I am a fan of anyone trying to make the world a better place by serving as they can.

Each human being is unique and will go through unique experiences, their past shapes their present nature and learns from present and evolves into future.
Someone’s mind is not a constant entity, it is an evolving entity.
Humans are self-centric and view the world with a comparison to themselves.
Every person needs attention, love, appreciation, beliefs confirmation and sense of contribution to others, in order to attain them, people perform various actions.
Each person will have various important entities in their life, Out of which priority of entities varies and entity with utmost priority will influence their decisions and actions.
This entity shapes their frame of reference through which they look the outside world, with their own parameter/attribute scale.
Someone's mind could be read in the present moment, over a period of time and laboratory.

How can we read someone’s mind?

Our subconscious minds know a lot more than we think.
Sometimes ,you may have noticed, you feel very unsure about a situation or a person.
Allow your gut feelings to send the necessary information to your conscious mind.
Mind reading is a vast field.
But most of the time as you learn to read the face of the person you are talking with,you will know what they are thinking.
Eyes: ‘Eyes are the windows to souls’.
Eyes reveal emotions and feelings ranging from love to hate.
Victor Hugo(1802-1885),the author who was famous for his numerous romantic relationships wrote” when a woman is speaking to you listen to what she has to say with her eyes”.
Eyes open the direct access to the feelings.
Aristotle Onassis(1906-1975), the greek businessman was reputed to wear a black sunglass during conducting business meetings to prevent peoples from reading his eyes.
He also insisted peoples dealing with him not to wear sunglasses which gave him huge advantages.
Eye contact: Direct eye contact is a sign of honesty, sincerity, confidence and open communication.
If you find someone who looked into your eyes more than usual ,you’d probably find him/her interesting.
Good eye contact is a social necessity.
Nervous , anxious peoples also find it difficult to maintain eye contact.
Shy peoples sometimes misunderstood unconsciously judging by their lack of eye contacts.
Glare: people stares at whatever disturbing him with glaring silent eyes demanding to stop whatever happening.
Fear: when someone is scared his /her eyes will be wide open and eyebrows will rise and drawn to each other.
Shifty eyes: people often move their eyes from side to side when they feel defensive.
Rapid eye movement from side to side shows extream anxiety and he /she desperately wants to escape.
Eye dipping: Historically high-status peoples are free to look anywhere but low-status people have not.
Usually, peoples who are obedient and submissive , dip their eyes downward to avoid offending someone they consider more dominant.
Looking upward: Someone who looks upward often may be considered as bored or unhappy with the way of conversation.
Looking over the top of one’s spectacles : a sign of dominance.
Sometimes threatening .
Rubbing the eyes/ blocking the eyes: or blocking the eyes with hand or may be closing the eyes momentarily ,are a sign that the person doesn’t like what he/she is listening .
An attempt to deny the information subconsciously.
Squinting: people tend to squint when acknowledging someone/something they find uncomfortable.
If someone squints while reading any documents ,it’s a sign of uncertainty.
Good salesmen are alert to this and immediately explains the exact word what caused the problem.
Blinking and fluttering:When someone is stressed ,upset or nervous they blink more than normal until they feel easy.
Flutter reveals that the person is upset about something.
Visual eye patterns: If something is remembered the eye will go to upwards then left.
If the person is trying to visualize something he/she have not seen, the eyes will go upward then to right.
If you are asked to imagine a red dinosaur ,your eyes are more likely to go upwards and then right.
Postures: someone who is standing tall and straight with head up,feet apart and arms by the side is feeling confident.
Conversely ,someone who has his legs or arms crossed is probably feeling uncomfort.
At the conclusion, It is important to be cautious and not to accept everything at face value.
Experiment ,test ,ask questions and then only make up your mind.
Even Eileen Garret ,the influential parapsychologist had doubts at times.
When she was asked if she believed in all psychology subjects she’d studied,she said “ Monday ,Wednesday, and Friday ,I do.
Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday , I don’t .
on Sunday, I don’t give a damn!”
Hope you’ ve enjoyed it.

Well,it's not that tough but not even that  easy.
You can't read someone's brain word to word but you can understand someone's feeling, only more precisely.
Like you asked how dynamo or any magicisn or mentalists read others brain.
mostly they don't actually read but instead they usually    provide some kinds of certain information to someone's brain but in a hidden way.
Like if i want the guy next to me to say 'A' ,i would have shown him some kinds of signs regarding with 'A' in past, so that his brain's imagination part keep remembering that word and revolving around it.
So when asked, brain will automaticly tell the most known and newly rememberred word which is 'A'.
  They also read someone's brain by their eyesigns or facial exxpressions irrespect of their gender.
Like ,if you suddenly  say someone's birthdate or any kinds of important number (for him/her ) in front of him/her ,his/her eyepupil will get wider temprarary .
Believe me ,it is not that difficult to read someone's brain even if in case of girls too.
stereotype girls will cry that you can't read our brain which is not true.
Since i have done many tests with girls too .
It helps me to read whether my particular student has done his/her homework or not,whether my mummy is lying or not, what my sister is doing now,what kind of gifts my father will give me,how my friends  feel when i met them and many more.
When you see someone's eye , by following some universal steps,most probably you can understand what he/she is thinking, whether he/she is remembering the song,remembring someone's face or etc but you can't  listen the song,read the words or see the faces directly .
But still you will need years of  heavy practise and literal education for this.
Many steps are available in internet and even in quora.
Go for, if you really want to learn.

Some steps i am sharing with you.
.
.
Wider eyes:- shocked/amazed/happy/interested (depends on the period of time)
Moving eyes toward left:- imagining/unconstructive or false imagination
Moving eyes toward right:- imagining related to truth and constructive.
Crossed arms:- defensive/deep thoght.
Smiling while talking :- lying/not understanding
Smiling while talking with broader eyepupil:- finding it funny.
Constant lips in case of girls:- wishing to kiss you(with certain conditions )
Legs hiddenly toward gates (in case of girls):- better for you to get out.

(note:- this can be faked by anyone and also you have to see some other signs too to be precise like tone of voice,time period and etc)

The first rule to be a good mind reader is to be a good observer.
You must observe people around you mainly your close friends, family.
The more you observe these people you will soon realize that people run in a similar pattern.
When prompted most of us will come up with same responses.
Having the knowledge of what most people will say on a situation may make you look telepathic.
You need to decode all sorts of nonverbal expressions.
You can take help from different body language books or learn it online.
You must be able to read the non verbal emotions.
It is difficult however with lot of practice you can be good at it.
You need to detect deception.
There is a thin line between truth and lies.
When we are at it, there are different types of lies.
You must be able to know that.
If we go by research then we must know that those who avoid eye contact are not necessarily always liars.
Hence it shows that lie and the art of speaking it has evolved with smartness.
You can read this book if you want to know more about it.
I was looking at the kids playing for a few seconds, my boss commented that “yes, Mr.
Anil, we should have bought our kids".
It was my turn to be surprised.
Did he just read my mind? No, he guessed logically based on the situation.
As many have answered, face is the index of mind and eyes are the windows of the soul.
Looking at others' expressions and body language, we can assume to a large extent what they are thinking.
The rest can be GREAT ANTICIPATION!
Apart from all this, I had an encounter with a real mind reader whom I recognized to be one immediately.
So, to test him I said, “come let's go for lunch” to which he immediately agreed.
Then I thought in my mind, “look at this guy, you invite him just for courtesy and he immediately accepts!” What happened next, he suddenly said that he was feeling some indigestion and that he would go later.
Then again I intentionally thought “this is nice guy, what is wrong in offering him lunch.
Let him eat.
“ Then he suddenly changed his plate and agreed.
This nailed him.
This guy is now posing as a religious expert and making money appearing on TV shows.
At a later date I cornered him, as he was claiming that he was worshipper of Lord Ganesha – the Indian demigod for wisdom and obstruction removal.
I blocked him from reading my mind and forced him to admit that he chants some mantra given by a master.
He had served some master for 12 years and then he got that mantra and siddhi .
That is humongous! Twelve years of service to the master.
He even promised to introduce me to his master.
I was not interested.

I have met many such people and it is common in India.
In the olden days, in many war treaty-meetings, the negotiators or generals involved had some mind readers to assist them to know what the others were thinking or whether they're being cheated.
You may also google this.
But the real mind reading comes from Yogic achievement of control over senses and anger and desires (i.
e.
kama and Krodha) when third eye opens.
You will not only be able to read others mind but also accurately talk about past, present and future according to the depth of your achievement.
But mind reading appears useless as thoughts keep changing according to situations and one's decisions should be/are based on some compulsions or needs.

Thanks for the A2A.
You can read facial expressions, social cues, body language, sometimes through instinct and deduction you might even understand, what might be going on in a person’s mind but, reading it?
I don’t think science has advanced so much.
Atheists, spiritual non-believers, read no further, you won't like it.
Thank you.
But,
By activating the Kundalini it’s said that Siddhi can be achieved.
Kundalini Sahajayoga is how you can awaken it.
(There are many other ways too)
The information I have given here doesn’t scratch the surface.
Massive amount of research
and determination is required from your end.

Later experiments confirmed the existence of mirror neurons in humans and revealed another surprise.
In addition to mirroring actions, the cells reflected sensations and emotions.

Mirror neurons suggest that we pretend to be in another person's mental shoes.
In fact, with mirror neurons we do not have to pretend, we practically are in another person's mind.
Theory of Mind (ToM)—the ability to think about mental states, such as thoughts and beliefs, in oneself and others —underlies social interaction and allows people to make sense of the behaviour of others.
ToM is a complex cognitive function that requires integration of information from many sources.

Fig: A model with two neural systems for cognitive and affective ToM processing with different and common brain areas involved.

Two theories attempt to explain the psychological processes underlying ToM:
1.
Theory Theory:

Theory theory describes children as budding social scientists.
The idea is that children collect evidence in the form of gestures and expressions and use their everyday understanding of people to develop theories that explain and predict the mental state of people they come in contact with.
2.
Simulation Theory:

The Simulation Theory suggests that the mental states of others are simulated using the same mental mechanisms involved in experiencing each state oneself.
This theory states that we are natural mind readers.
  When we interact with someone, we do more than just observe the other person's behaviour.
We create internal representations of their actions, sensations and emotions within ourselves, as if we are the ones that are moving, sensing and feeling.
James Coan, Pyschology Professor from University of Virginia conducted a study with 22 young adult participants who underwent fMRI scans of their brains during experiments to monitor brain activity while under threat of receiving mild electrical shocks to themselves or to a friend or stranger.

The researchers found that regions of the brain responsible for threat response – the anterior insula, putamen and supramarginal gyrus – became active under threat of shock to the self.
In the case of threat of shock to a stranger, the brain in those regions displayed little activity.
However when the threat of shock was to a friend, the brain activity of the participant became essentially identical to the activity displayed under threat to the self.
The correlation between self and friend was remarkably similar.
The finding shows the brain’s remarkable capacity to model self to others; that people close to us become a part of ourselves, and that is not just metaphor or poetry, it’s very real.

But not so when a stranger is under threat.

Recent research have claimed that neuroscientists are now effectively able to perform ‘mind reading’.
An experiment conducted by Dr Brian Pasley and colleagues involved the recruitment of patients who were to undergo brain surgery.
The researchers placed electrodes upon the auditory areas of the brain during the period when the patients’ skulls were open and their cerebral cortex exposed.
They then played the patients a sequence of different words and recorded the electrical activity generated by the auditory cortex in response to this speech.
Using complex modeling procedures they were able to reconstruct the spoken words solely from the neural signals recorded by the electrodes.
Furthermore they were able to successfully apply this model to the electrical responses generated by a separate set of words that had not been used in creation of the model suggesting that the model could theoretically be applied to reconstruct any speech heard by the patient.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) allows brain activity to be measured in a non-invasive way, so that no surgery of any kind is required.
MRI studies have produced some equivalent results to that of Pasley’s study, but using visual stimuli; with images and short movies having been reconstructed purely from data obtained from MRI scans.
 
Some groups are edging closer to this goal; a team in the Netherlands scanned the brains of bilingual speakers to detect the concepts each participant were forming – such as the idea of a horse or cow, correctly identifying the meaning whether the subjects were thinking in English or Dutch.
However, the system needed to be trained on each individual, so it is a far cry from a universal translator.
One team in Japan is currently trying to make a dream reader, using the same fMRI technique.
But unlike in the movie experiment, where researchers know what the person is seeing and can confirm that image in the brain readouts, dreams are far trickier.
To try and train the system, researchers put subjects in an fMRI machine and let them slip into that weird state between wakefulness and dreaming.
They then woke up the subject and ask what they had seen.
Using that information, they could correlate the reported dream images – everything from ice picks to keys to statues – to train the algorithm.
Using this database, the Japanese team was able to identify around 60% of the types of images dreamers saw.
But there’s a key hurdle between these experiments and a universal dream decoder: each dreamer’s signals are different.
Right now, the decoder has to be trained to each individual.
So even if you were willing to sleep in an fMRI machine, there’s no universal decoder that can reveal our nightly adventures.

How can we read someone’s mind?

Our subconscious minds know a lot more than we think.
Sometimes ,you may have noticed, you feel very unsure about a situation or a person.
Allow your gut feelings to send the necessary information to your conscious mind.
Mind reading is a vast field.
But most of the time as you learn to read the face of the person you are talking with,you will know what they are thinking.
Eyes: ‘Eyes are the windows to souls’.
Eyes reveal emotions and feelings ranging from love to hate.
Victor Hugo(1802-1885),the author who was famous for his numerous romantic relationships wrote” when a woman is speaking to you listen to what she has to say with her eyes”.
Eyes open the direct access to the feelings.
Aristotle Onassis(1906-1975), the greek businessman was reputed to wear a black sunglass during conducting business meetings to prevent peoples from reading his eyes.
He also insisted peoples dealing with him not to wear sunglasses which gave him huge advantages.
Eye contact: Direct eye contact is a sign of honesty, sincerity, confidence and open communication.
If you find someone who looked into your eyes more than usual ,you’d probably find him/her interesting.
Good eye contact is a social necessity.
Nervous , anxious peoples also find it difficult to maintain eye contact.
Shy peoples sometimes misunderstood unconsciously judging by their lack of eye contacts.
Glare: people stares at whatever disturbing him with glaring silent eyes demanding to stop whatever happening.
Fear: when someone is scared his /her eyes will be wide open and eyebrows will rise and drawn to each other.
Shifty eyes: people often move their eyes from side to side when they feel defensive.
Rapid eye movement from side to side shows extream anxiety and he /she desperately wants to escape.
Eye dipping: Historically high-status peoples are free to look anywhere but low-status people have not.
Usually, peoples who are obedient and submissive , dip their eyes downward to avoid offending someone they consider more dominant.
Looking upward: Someone who looks upward often may be considered as bored or unhappy with the way of conversation.
Looking over the top of one’s spectacles : a sign of dominance.
Sometimes threatening .
Rubbing the eyes/ blocking the eyes: or blocking the eyes with hand or may be closing the eyes momentarily ,are a sign that the person doesn’t like what he/she is listening .
An attempt to deny the information subconsciously.
Squinting: people tend to squint when acknowledging someone/something they find uncomfortable.
If someone squints while reading any documents ,it’s a sign of uncertainty.
Good salesmen are alert to this and immediately explains the exact word what caused the problem.
Blinking and fluttering:When someone is stressed ,upset or nervous they blink more than normal until they feel easy.
Flutter reveals that the person is upset about something.
Visual eye patterns: If something is remembered the eye will go to upwards then left.
If the person is trying to visualize something he/she have not seen, the eyes will go upward then to right.
If you are asked to imagine a red dinosaur ,your eyes are more likely to go upwards and then right.
Postures: someone who is standing tall and straight with head up,feet apart and arms by the side is feeling confident.
Conversely ,someone who has his legs or arms crossed is probably feeling uncomfort.
At the conclusion, It is important to be cautious and not to accept everything at face value.
Experiment ,test ,ask questions and then only make up your mind.
Even Eileen Garret ,the influential parapsychologist had doubts at times.
When she was asked if she believed in all psychology subjects she’d studied,she said “ Monday ,Wednesday, and Friday ,I do.
Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday , I don’t .
on Sunday, I don’t give a damn!”
Hope you’ ve enjoyed it.

Many people have been looking for the answer to this question.
You are evidently one of them, seeing that you are reading this answer.
Many of us might have come across a moment where you:
If you have come across even a single thing from the above, then congratulations, you could get into (or simply sense) what was in the mind of another person!
Reading someone’s mind in a way means completely understanding that person, inside and out.
The basis of this understanding is on the kind and strength of bond you share with that person.
Once you get to know a person, you can slowly make out what they actually want or feel at a particular time.
We learn about their emotions, their cognitive capacities, their abilities, and basically they themselves as a whole.
Eventually, you know the person completely and subconsciously without even giving efforts.
‬ (All this, provided, the bond is continuous and of same or increasing frequency and intensity!)
This is seen in several cases in real life as well.
Also, take the example of your mother.
When you were a little baby, and your only method of communication regarding anything and everything was simply crying.
Think about how difficult it would have been in the first few months for her, to decode your language and find out if you actually are hungry or are sick or you just pooped! It was slow and gradual, but she finally did figure you out, and was able to cater to each and every of your needs despite your same crying.
It is definitely not a very easy process to understand someone completely.
But it is not entirely impossible; You just need to be able to create that bond with that someone, so pure, realistic and intense.
Remember the recipe:
As I usually would say, “The world is difficult, but not impossible.

[PS : Also, if we go on a literal sense of getting into someone’s minds, well, neurosurgeons definitely exist in this world for a reason! 😉 ]

Listen.
The person you’re thinking of is thinking about you, if only in the back of their mind, they’re thoughts are including you.
When you think of someone and you think of them thinking thoughts in the back of their minds, those thoughts they will be thinking will have to include you.
There may be some effort on their part to keep you out of their thoughts.
That’s understandable.
When you think of that person….
and you think of them thinking thoughts, you penetrate their minds antenna.
They may have a filter to quiet your voice inside them.
They may have a circuit built that shorts you straight to ground.
Either way, they’ll receive your thoughts.
You’ll receive theirs, too.
Just listen.
Listen to your thoughts and decide which of them is theirs.
They are there, you know.
They’re there in their minds and they’re there in yours.
If you both are listening to each other and speaking to each other and your filters aren’t shorting them to ground, you can pick up what they’re feeling if you try to feel what they’re trying to tell you about what they are feeling.
If you get a feeling you don’t understand, out of nowhere and suddenly you see a face or hear a voice, …
If you learn to listen to your mind, you’ll find out how to talk to people across oceans, across A sea.
You’ll feel something they feel and they’ll argue or agree.
Just listen.

They can’t.
Those who think they read my mind are wrong, and sometimes bad people.
The best you can do is to read my word without making many assumption beyond the literal things I say.
And don’t trust that what I say is what I believe.
I am often being funny in ways people who know me tell me isn’t funny.
And I hold contradictory opinions.
You might not enjoy getting to know my mind.
I am not like other people.
When I was young that was confusing and painful.
I had to break away from things to survive intellectually.
Painful process.
And I was slow to find freedom of thought.
I read a lot.
Fast, slow.
I don’t know the difference.
I was faster than others.
Still hard to break away.
And book learning must be put into action for the next many stages of real deep learning.
Action without books is often wrong.
Books without action is useless.
Even the people closest to me cannot read my mind fully, but I am very predictable.
I like things simple.
I like to eat the same thing.
I like my physical reality to be stable.
I don’t like noise.
So those close to me can adjust.
I am easy.
If you don’t bug me.
They can know what I need more than I sometimes.
Often for those most intimate, I can read their minds with enough time.
If you know the vectors you know the future.
Perhaps it is the same for some.
Normal people could say I am fucked up, and by their standards I am.
I chose to not live by their standards, and I think they should question if their standards serve them.
You can call me a freak, and I will agree without much pride or shame.
So I live in the bubble I have created:
Brian Fey's answer to Mexico: What is Bosque Village ?
And I am careful about who can enter the bubble.
People disturb me.
I expect a social contract.
I am somewhat flexible.
But as the years pass… less so.
I publish more and more about my visions for a better world; ones I might not be able to live up to.
I am no guru, and don’t want that job if I have to show up to work on demand and look good.
I will be contradictory and difficult.
Anyone who wished to follow and support me on my strange path will have my empathy.
And I will support them on their path.
There is no one way.
Some people want to follow, and that is ok.
I am becoming ok with it.
I am learning to respect followers.
But my standards are high.
I am pretty anti-authoritarian and don’t want to be turned into a leader on a pedestal.
I have to protect the forest and my personal space and peace.
Perhaps I need people to help with that.
I am slow to say it, but I do need help.
If you like the vision, apply.
Women should be cautious not to have their heart hurt by me.
I am honest and I warn them.
Don’t fall in love with a Brian who does not exist.
Sweet visions are not supported by reality.
In some rare conditions, you can get close to me, but don’t have any expectations of a Brian you made up in your head.
Don’t let your expectations hurt you.
I am just a fancy dork with an unusual collection of interests.
I am closed, and sometimes open, but no bullshit is welcome.
Answer this: Is love a lie? Oddly enough, some women have “loved me”.
Some have kept me alive.
I appreciate loyalty.
I don’t like the word love, but my life is all about Love.
“Loving” me is apparently not easy.
I am nicer to other people than I am to myself.
But I am wary.
I am fine with having fans, but don’t get weird or stalkish.
Default answer is “no”.
I guess it is pointless to warn psychopaths to stay away.
Most seem unaware of who they are.
I am learning self-defense in various forms.
People can apply to come here; Pay their own way and serve the culture here.
I don’t come with the deal.
I don’t owe anyone intimacy and am not a gigolo.
People who try to bully me with their “truth” and “spirituality”; I will disappoint them.
Evangelism is not welcome, though reason is.
I do listen to all but the most negative people who get tuned out afterward I listen.
Bullies come in many forms for all of us.
Abuse happens.
I hope we all can make the way clear for us to blaze our personal trails.
Be your own guru, but don’t pamper yourself or fall for simple bigotry and prejudice.
Don’t get ego-spiritual.
People who think they know everything, don’t.
There is no enlightenment, but if you walk in the dark, you should have light.
Don’t fall down too often, and when you do, learn from it.
Get a light.
Only young toddlers are cute, the adult spoiled toddlers are just ignorant adult babies who need care and their selfish violence causes more problems.
Look in the mirror with both judgement and love.
We are all similar.
We are all different.
Brian Fey's answer to How can you tell if a rock is heavy or light? Pointless distinctions there.
No one can read your mind.
You cannot even read your own mind.
We are lost in ourselves even if we have high level of self awareness.
It is not possible to know who you are.
Other people know more than you do about who you are, in their own conflicted delusional ways.
They are wrong too; right too.
The “you” will never be known.
But if you were good, you will have created good, and for a time people will remember it.
Ripples of goodness can radiate from your life.
Perhaps they will affect generations.
You will still be born, do stuff, then die.
It will all be over.
The mind will be gone and your molecules with spread becoming part of the all else.
You become part of everything which was around you.
Good luck,
Good luck in the work you do.
I do hope to serve to inspire.
It doesn’t matter if we agree or not.
I am a fan of anyone trying to make the world a better place by serving as they can.

Each human being is unique and will go through unique experiences, their past shapes their present nature and learns from present and evolves into future.
Someone’s mind is not a constant entity, it is an evolving entity.
Humans are self-centric and view the world with a comparison to themselves.
Every person needs attention, love, appreciation, beliefs confirmation and sense of contribution to others, in order to attain them, people perform various actions.
Each person will have various important entities in their life, Out of which priority of entities varies and entity with utmost priority will influence their decisions and actions.
This entity shapes their frame of reference through which they look the outside world, with their own parameter/attribute scale.
Someone's mind could be read in the present moment, over a period of time and laboratory.
A.
Over a period of time through the frame of references:
B.
Present moment through body language:
C.
Laboratory through various brain scans:

Well,it's not that tough but not even that  easy.
You can't read someone's brain word to word but you can understand someone's feeling, only more precisely.
Like you asked how dynamo or any magicisn or mentalists read others brain.
mostly they don't actually read but instead they usually    provide some kinds of certain information to someone's brain but in a hidden way.
Like if i want the guy next to me to say 'A' ,i would have shown him some kinds of signs regarding with 'A' in past, so that his brain's imagination part keep remembering that word and revolving around it.
So when asked, brain will automaticly tell the most known and newly rememberred word which is 'A'.
  They also read someone's brain by their eyesigns or facial exxpressions irrespect of their gender.
Like ,if you suddenly  say someone's birthdate or any kinds of important number (for him/her ) in front of him/her ,his/her eyepupil will get wider temprarary .
Believe me ,it is not that difficult to read someone's brain even if in case of girls too.
stereotype girls will cry that you can't read our brain which is not true.
Since i have done many tests with girls too .
It helps me to read whether my particular student has done his/her homework or not,whether my mummy is lying or not, what my sister is doing now,what kind of gifts my father will give me,how my friends  feel when i met them and many more.
When you see someone's eye , by following some universal steps,most probably you can understand what he/she is thinking, whether he/she is remembering the song,remembring someone's face or etc but you can't  listen the song,read the words or see the faces directly .
But still you will need years of  heavy practise and literal education for this.
Many steps are available in internet and even in quora.
Go for, if you really want to learn.

Some steps i am sharing with you.
.
.
Wider eyes:- shocked/amazed/happy/interested (depends on the period of time)
Moving eyes toward left:- imagining/unconstructive or false imagination
Moving eyes toward right:- imagining related to truth and constructive.
Crossed arms:- defensive/deep thoght.
Smiling while talking :- lying/not understanding
Smiling while talking with broader eyepupil:- finding it funny.
Constant lips in case of girls:- wishing to kiss you(with certain conditions )
Legs hiddenly toward gates (in case of girls):- better for you to get out.

(note:- this can be faked by anyone and also you have to see some other signs too to be precise like tone of voice,time period and etc)

The first rule to be a good mind reader is to be a good observer.
You must observe people around you mainly your close friends, family.
The more you observe these people you will soon realize that people run in a similar pattern.
When prompted most of us will come up with same responses.
Having the knowledge of what most people will say on a situation may make you look telepathic.
You need to decode all sorts of nonverbal expressions.
You can take help from different body language books or learn it online.
You must be able to read the non verbal emotions.
It is difficult however with lot of practice you can be good at it.
You need to detect deception.
There is a thin line between truth and lies.
When we are at it, there are different types of lies.
You must be able to know that.
If we go by research then we must know that those who avoid eye contact are not necessarily always liars.
Hence it shows that lie and the art of speaking it has evolved with smartness.
You can read this book if you want to know more about it.
I was looking at the kids playing for a few seconds, my boss commented that “yes, Mr.
Anil, we should have bought our kids".
It was my turn to be surprised.
Did he just read my mind? No, he guessed logically based on the situation.
As many have answered, face is the index of mind and eyes are the windows of the soul.
Looking at others' expressions and body language, we can assume to a large extent what they are thinking.
The rest can be GREAT ANTICIPATION!
Apart from all this, I had an encounter with a real mind reader whom I recognized to be one immediately.
So, to test him I said, “come let's go for lunch” to which he immediately agreed.
Then I thought in my mind, “look at this guy, you invite him just for courtesy and he immediately accepts!” What happened next, he suddenly said that he was feeling some indigestion and that he would go later.
Then again I intentionally thought “this is nice guy, what is wrong in offering him lunch.
Let him eat.
“ Then he suddenly changed his plate and agreed.
This nailed him.
This guy is now posing as a religious expert and making money appearing on TV shows.
At a later date I cornered him, as he was claiming that he was worshipper of Lord Ganesha – the Indian demigod for wisdom and obstruction removal.
I blocked him from reading my mind and forced him to admit that he chants some mantra given by a master.
He had served some master for 12 years and then he got that mantra and siddhi .
That is humongous! Twelve years of service to the master.
He even promised to introduce me to his master.
I was not interested.

I have met many such people and it is common in India.
In the olden days, in many war treaty-meetings, the negotiators or generals involved had some mind readers to assist them to know what the others were thinking or whether they're being cheated.
You may also google this.
But the real mind reading comes from Yogic achievement of control over senses and anger and desires (i.
e.
kama and Krodha) when third eye opens.
You will not only be able to read others mind but also accurately talk about past, present and future according to the depth of your achievement.
But mind reading appears useless as thoughts keep changing according to situations and one's decisions should be/are based on some compulsions or needs.

Thanks for the A2A.
You can read facial expressions, social cues, body language, sometimes through instinct and deduction you might even understand, what might be going on in a person’s mind but, reading it?
I don’t think science has advanced so much.
Atheists, spiritual non-believers, read no further, you won't like it.
Thank you.
But,
By activating the Kundalini it’s said that Siddhi can be achieved.
Kundalini Sahajayoga is how you can awaken it.
(There are many other ways too)
The information I have given here doesn’t scratch the surface.
Massive amount of research
and determination is required from your end.

Later experiments confirmed the existence of mirror neurons in humans and revealed another surprise.
In addition to mirroring actions, the cells reflected sensations and emotions.

Mirror neurons suggest that we pretend to be in another person's mental shoes.
In fact, with mirror neurons we do not have to pretend, we practically are in another person's mind.
Theory of Mind (ToM)—the ability to think about mental states, such as thoughts and beliefs, in oneself and others —underlies social interaction and allows people to make sense of the behaviour of others.
ToM is a complex cognitive function that requires integration of information from many sources.

Fig: A model with two neural systems for cognitive and affective ToM processing with different and common brain areas involved.

Two theories attempt to explain the psychological processes underlying ToM:
1.
Theory Theory:

Theory theory describes children as budding social scientists.
The idea is that children collect evidence in the form of gestures and expressions and use their everyday understanding of people to develop theories that explain and predict the mental state of people they come in contact with.
2.
Simulation Theory:

The Simulation Theory suggests that the mental states of others are simulated using the same mental mechanisms involved in experiencing each state oneself.
This theory states that we are natural mind readers.
  When we interact with someone, we do more than just observe the other person's behaviour.
We create internal representations of their actions, sensations and emotions within ourselves, as if we are the ones that are moving, sensing and feeling.
James Coan, Pyschology Professor from University of Virginia conducted a study with 22 young adult participants who underwent fMRI scans of their brains during experiments to monitor brain activity while under threat of receiving mild electrical shocks to themselves or to a friend or stranger.

The researchers found that regions of the brain responsible for threat response – the anterior insula, putamen and supramarginal gyrus – became active under threat of shock to the self.
In the case of threat of shock to a stranger, the brain in those regions displayed little activity.
However when the threat of shock was to a friend, the brain activity of the participant became essentially identical to the activity displayed under threat to the self.
The correlation between self and friend was remarkably similar.
The finding shows the brain’s remarkable capacity to model self to others; that people close to us become a part of ourselves, and that is not just metaphor or poetry, it’s very real.
Literally we are under threat when a friend is under threat.
But not so when a stranger is under threat.

We all read each other’s minds from time to time, and no magic required.
The most common way – interpreting the meat sounds another human makes with their lips.
We have to figure out from the context and the previously agreed upon meanings of the meat sounds and their arrangement what was going on in another person’s mind.
Less commonly we notice the body language of another human and read their feelings, or intent, maybe even a specific thought.
Everyday I read squiggle on a monitor or piece of paper and by knowing what meat sounds they represent I can receive the thoughts of another person.
Maybe even the thoughts of someone long dead.
People who work on a physical task together for a long time frequently read each other’s mind, they know beforehand what the other human requires.
I suppose that’s more a pre-reading of someone’s mind, more than a reading.
Sometimes I read the thoughts of someone who’s not where I’m at while they do something completely different far away – because I know exactly what they would think of an event I’m experiencing.
If you mean another kind of mind reading you’ll have to describe it.

I know many people who can read mind.
So we will divide them in two category
