We all love a good magic trick from time to time because of the amazement and questions they give us. But getting serious into magic to the point of being recognized takes hard work, dedication, practice and investment. If you're here to figure out what your magician persona might be, then this is the place. You could also try it for fun (but it's better if you have at least a little idea in the world of magic).
Which one of these characteristics do you appear to have more naturally?
How far do you wish to go as an entertainer?
Which one of the methods do you prefer applying in your magic performance?
Do you prefer the use of props or gimmicks?
What would your show have in store mostly?
A close-up magician is someone who prefers to use misdirection and clever sleight of hand for a group of 3 to more people in a 2 feet distance. Close-up magicians like to use props such as coins, sponge balls, rubber bands, sponge balls etc. If being the smart and slick type of magician sounds like your dominant trait, then start practicing and take your art to the bars, streets and restaurants.
The stage magician is someone who's willing to stop at nothing for the perfect grand illusion. Being this type of magician shows that you are someone really passionate and dedicated to this art not only as a hobby, but as a professional performer. Performing amazing tricks such as materializations, levitations and bending the laws of physics.
Mentalism is a very rare and beautiful form of magic. If you've gotten this one then you should consider yourself someone with an amazing gift. After all self confidence plays an important role in mentalism. Along with psychology and showmanship. Mentalists are magicians whom appear to have paranormal abilities due to their understanding of the mind using simple techniques such as cold reading, hypnosis and more.
