The objective reality of the existence or non-existence of "psychics" is not the subject. We are discussing the subjective reality of each person. It doesn't matter if they actually *have* psychic abilities, what we are discussing is whether they *believe* they have psychic abilities. So what I'm saying is that you are involved in a community that mimicks what "real psychics" do. You are automatically biased in your information, because you are in a community full of people who will fake it. If you're not in the actual community being discussed, your information is vastly incomplete and you can't make judgment calls on numbers. Given the amount of people who attend psychic workshops, and the number of people who do readings casually (Far outnumbering the people who do it professionally, even within the metaphysical community), versus the number of magicians who think spitting a Barnum line counts as doing readings, I'm quite comfortable with the assertion that the majority of people doing readings think they are genuinely using some kind of supernatural ability. Keep in mind, the metaphysical market is a multi- billion dollar market. The magic market is a fraction of that size.
