Go to this web-site, and see if you can understand how they do it. It is creepy how it works every time.

I'm sure someone will figure it out.

Very spooky.

At first I thought it was because I subconsciously moved my mouse over the symbol I was looking at for 10 seconds.

It comes up with a result when you don't even try so it isn't 100% accurate :)

I'm intrigued.

Some of these things are like add 2, add 6, subtract 8 and you get the number you first thought of...but this is genuinely puzzling.

Weird but I can't work this one out.

Aha! Think it is based on the number 9.

All the sums indicate that, ie

12-3=9, 55-10= 45 and those digits added =9

Well spotted!

But then the symbols are different and correct each time. Unless it is random based around 9s and gets it right 90% of the time or something!

Maybe, but how come when I have tried all different numbers, I get different symbals every time (about 4 or 5 so far), and the correct symbal always comes up.

I'm sure it has something to do with number combinations, but it is spooky when you don't click on anything, just sit and think about it.
You don't even have to stare for 10 seconds, just have a real quick glance, and it still gets the right answer.

The symbol is the same for all possible answers each time!

There are only 9 possible answers - each time you do it these 9 answers[9,18,27,36,45,54,63,72,81] all have the same symbol - the symbols change position each time giving the illusion of a possibility of a different answer.

Good one!
Kinda the same thing.

Yes indeed. There arevariants of this with cards which perform in the same way.
