ESP / Zener cards

ESP / Zener cards


Zener cards were designed by psychologist Karl Zener in the early 1930s and were used to conduct experiments for extrasensory perception (most often clairvoyance) but can also be used for a type of divination called Zenermancy. The rear of each card is printed with a traditional playing card backing design that ensures that the receiver is not assisted by light bleed-through when viewing the card during the experiment. Originally the cards were printed in black & white but modern packs seen in films & on TV are often depicted as using different colours for each symbol.
