Psychics are people who appear to have one or more psychic abilities. Psychics whose ability appears to be spirit communication are called mediums or channelers, psychics whose ability appears to be telepathy might be called telepaths, and those with apparent clairvoyance might be called clairvoyants. Other psychic abilities include clairsentience, psychokinesis, and the ability to have an out-of-body experience at will.
