**How is it possible that the Flash mind reader can pick the right symbol every single time?** Can the computer read your mind? Is this really possible? Let us unveil the secret behind the flash mind reader, how it works, and how mathematics can be applied to the game.

Ok, so for those who thought there was psychic abilities involved….the answer is no. The Flash Mind Reader secret is all about math. You could say that it’s a kind of a “math mind reader” or a “number mind reader”. You see, for all the possible numbers that you can choose, you only have a few possible results to the calculation that you are instructed to do on the number that you pick. There is an algorithm in place that make this work.

The game tells you to pick a number from 10 to 99, then add the digits, an finally subtract them from your initial number. What you don’t know when you are doing this, there is something in the background that is going on. Below is a list of all of the possible numbers that you can choose from, the calculation of the digits added, along with the final number you end up with.

As you can see, it means that even if you pick any number between 10-99, there are only 9 possible outcomes after your instructed calculation. The possible numbers you are left with are::** 9, 18, 27, 36, 45, 54, 63, 72, 81**. It means that algorithm in the game forces your picked number to end up in either of the 9 possible numbers.

**Ok, but what about the symbols. How does the flash mind reader work with the symbols?**

Even if the symbols are randomized there is actually a consistency in the Flash Mind Reader secret. The following numbers **9, 18, 27, 36, 45, 54, 63, 72, and 81** will always share the same symbol after refreshing the page.

To clarify, every single calculation results in a multiple of 9, and every multiple of 9 shares the same symbol. This means that the Flash Mind Reader will always choose the same symbol as you, since you are both doing the same math!

It’s pretty amazing how simple math can seem so mysterious at first!

Now you do not only know how the flash mind reader game work, but you also know a little bit more about mind reading tricks. Even if this game is a kind of a virtual mind reader without any psychic abilities, it sure is a bit “spooky” for the one who have never tested it. And it’s still a fun online mind reading game to play.
