In an example of the forced choice method to test for psychic phenomenon, a subject is given a certain number of choices as to what is on the back side of a card viewed by a "sender." The subject then chooses what they think is on the back side of the card. After many attempts, the number of correct responses is compared to the number of attempts. Research has shown that the number of correct responses is generally higher than what statistics would show the number of correct responses to be if they were just random.
