Zener cards

Tags: Parapsychology Morgue

Zener cards are a set of cards, designed by psychologist Karl E. Zener, that are frequently used in experiments with extrasensory perception. A set of zener cards comprises 25 cards in five suits. The cards are marked with symbols: circle, square, cross, wavy lines, and five-pointed star.

In a typical Zener card experiment, the deck is shuffled and subjects are asked to predict which symbol will turn up.
