Why is belief in tarot, astrology, numerology, and psychics mostly a female phenomenon?
For some reason, most men don’t care about or believe in things like crystal power, psychic energy, astrology, numerology, palm-reading, psychic powers, Reiki, Feng Shui, spiritual channeling, homeopathy, guardian angels, bioenergetic vibrations, spiritual interdimensional beings, and things of this nature. Far more women than men embrace such beliefs and study them on a serious level. Women buy books and attend lectures on those subjects and generally consider them serious matters, whereas most men scoff at them or roll their eyes or some other disrespectful thing. Why is that?

For the same reason if you peep into any church 3/4 of the attendees are women and all the men are at home watching the sports channel.

Possibly because mainstream religion is overly patriarchal, and disempowers women.
There are some men who are into this stuff – like me.
Answer by Bethany
Women are naturally more spiritual and spiritually intune than men.
Answer by John
Evolution. Men are hard-wired to be concrete thinkers. Women are typically more abstract thinkers. On the spectrum I would consider myself slightly more abstract, and admittedly I still have a hard time placing faith in intangible concepts.

May I have an Abnormal/Supernatural power? Please Read.?
Over the years I’ve noticed something. It seems like i can reach and receive unknown information about someone. Like not any of that touch their skin and get visions crap. It’s like i receive words and i once told someone about this. They didn’t believe me so i told them about what i felt had happened to them. Example: Bad childhood, abusive parents, insecurities etc. Many times when I’ve seen people or met them for the first times i get strong impressions of them. I recently met my friends grandmother, i asked him; “she’s 52 isn’t she?” he gave me a shocked look and said “yeah.. how’d you know?” I had a very negative impression of one family friend in the past and didn’t want anything to do with them. Later on they completely betrayed close ones to me in illegal ways and tried to get my brother in prison for their actions. It’s not anything like touching someones skin and seeing visions i think that seems like tv stuff. I’m also a Scorpio if that’s even relevant, but i believe in some of the horoscope stuff. Most of my dreams come true except for the fact that in every single one someone dies. I have “Deja Vu” allot too, especially as a young child, like I’ve seen certain scenes before or heard some one thing before. My friend he was at school. I had a dream the previous night and i asked him if he were going to the beach anytime soon.In my dream he was at the beach. Infact he was going to the beach the following weekend. I asked if his grandmother had blonde hair and she did, several other details like tattoos, and appearance details were drastically correct. It scares me sometimes.. but the dreams, telling someones past (rarely can i do), and how i can seem to tell how someones feeling or thinking about it’s kind of weird i know. But I’m not making this up and i would like to know if this is common or if its just an abnormal act of my mind? Google said it’s Empathy but that can’t be this. It’s starting to occur on a daily basis and I’d really like to know what it is.
Thanks for your time. Please help me define this I’d greatly appreciate.
Answer by Aaron
we should meet up and form a team, every time someone touches me I can edit their memories if i want, I made a girl fall in love with me, a bully become a little cry-baby, and a ass-hole of a teacher become the most relax professor in the school. Together me and you could take over the universe (as father and son, obviously).

You’re making guesses that most people can apply to themselves, and they’re doing so. It’s not psychic powers, it’s simply ‘cold reading’. That’s how horoscopes work. Nothing you’ve said here is a paranormal power, it’s simply psychology.

The only superpower you have is a super-powerful imagination.
You wrote “Most of my dreams come true except for the fact that in every single one someone dies” — logically, this means that none of your dreams come true.
Everyone wants to fee special and powerful.
Answer by Luke Star
Sorry, you don’t have superpowers. All of these occurrences are explainable. The first part is the deja vu which is nothing more than deja vu. The dreams coming true is a common belief in people but is really just powerful deja vu that leads you to believe that you actually did dream something that you didn’t or that you only dreamed something similar to (keep a dream journal and you will find that this is true). The 52 thing comes from you having learned it then forgotten how you learned it. Its possible that in conversation, your friend mentioned his grandmother’s age and you both forgot. This is very likely if you drink to excess or use drugs. It is also possible that it never happened and that you only thought that you were able to tell him his grandmother’s age. You mention your bility to know specific details, this is simply déjà entendu and is just you thinking you knew stuff that you didn’t.
Answer by David
It’s scary reading your words, I am like you in every way. Did you have a traumatic or near death experience when you were younger? Perhaps you were really ill and was going to die, or was close to dying? Do you have a guardian angel? My guardian angel is called Sam and I was close to dying when I was 2 years old. Ever since I get the same thoughts and feelings you get. It’s your guardian angel by the way, who is with you all the time and who shows you steps in life. I see the name Tom and white hair, this may not mean something to you. Email me I might be able to help you. Do you feel or see anything about me?
