Prediction in a simple "Yes or No" sense is certainly possible, but what often emerges for the more insightful reader is a resounding "Maybe . . . but." A good reader has the skill and sensitivity to tease these highlights out of the reading. I'm thinking a useful analogy might be a barometer that has the ability to communicate upcoming changes in the weather more effectively than a thermometer, which is primarily a "lagging indicator." There are usually more variables at work than a single-pointed measurement can convey.

I also agree with the observation that face-to-face interaction is crucial to achieving the best result, but it appears that the readings in question were all interactive rather than remote. So it comes down to how wide a net the reader is able to cast.

I think that some readers are not amazing to get subtle cues from a reading. I cannot talk for myself because i try to do so in my readings, but it can be difficult.

Maybe these readers were too much in the mode ''black and white'' ''yes and no''? It's funny because they were more convinced than me that I was going to be accepted! I am often too optimistic but I am happy that I did not believe their predictions at 100%
