There is evidence of a variety of techniques that psychics utilize in order to gain information from their clients and make it appear as if they are predicting things. A method known as cold-calling is when a psychic asks a large audience a general question, like if anyone had a sister named Jane who was in a car accident. This is savage and yet simultaneously specific that someone is bound to have experienced it. Similarly, hot-calling is getting information before the meeting, through platforms like Instagram or Twitter.  Psychics may also take into account the demographics of an area, and keep in mind the statistics and likelihood of certain things happening to the people living within that area. Psychics aren't real-they're just smart.
Perhaps they utilize these methods, but many things predicted by psychics cannot be explains by techniques such as cold or hot-calling. This accuracy can only work to a certain level. ESP is required to see certain things, things that wild or even educated guesses would have no chance of knowing.
