Re: Picking up phone calls.
Just need a few clarifications before I can start throwing terminology around:

How do you know that the conversation you hear is taking place somewhere else?
Do you recognize the voices of the conversing? If yes, how well do you know them?

I'll try and think up some possibilities but it's easier to narrow things down the more there is to work with/go on

Re: Picking up phone calls.
In addition to Chai's questions, have you corroborated with the people you supposedly overhear that they were indeed having whatever conversation at the time you "heard" them?

Re: Picking up phone calls.
Well with the first question its always when I'm with no one and its completely empty mainly if I'm near a telephone mast also in addition i once heard a friends conversation and asked about it this was the first time i recognized a voice she said that she was in Ireland at that time.

Second question i don't always recognize them only once i have recognized it and in that case the person was my girlfriend.

The additional question should have been answered in my first answer if not i appoligise.

Did she verify that the specific details of what you heard were said? Not just the gist (which can lead to accidentally hot reading someone), but the specifics, without prompting?

Re: Picking up phone calls.
It could be clairaudience (sp?), telepathy with your friends, or schizophrenia. This is why confirmation is important.

Re: Picking up phone calls.
Or (as suggested by Gavin de Becker, former FBI profiler dude) a lot of these things happen because something around you (for example, a story on the news) makes you subconsciously think of a friend, and your intimiate knowledge of them makes you (again, subconsciously) able to predict what they are likely to be thinking about or doing at that time. Combined with confirmation bias - many people get assorted "feelings", some of them incredibly profound and strong, which they later forget because they weren't reflected in reality - this can cause a strong feeling of having psychic powers.

Or of course, it could be legit.

Re: Picking up phone calls.
Especially with people you're close to, this can happen a lot.

It's not usually anything special. For instance, I can think of my friends and what's been going on with them lately, bring it up in a conversation later on, and have them say, "I was actually talking about that today... crazy!!"

If I text my friends with a line, I usually have an idea of how they'll respond. If I say "thanks" to one of them, depending on the friend, I can tell you their exact response: "no problem," "anytime," "go f*** yourself," etc.

I said "YOUR FACE" in a text message to my friend Nick and got exactly the response I thought he'd say, "is dead sexy" in response. I've had whole conversations where I knew what they'd say, give or take, before they said it. It's simply a matter of knowing a person well enough. You could say there's a connection that goes beyond the mundane with it, but either way, it's based off intimacy.

Note, these are my friends. The level of this I have with my boyfriend's just uncanny.


I'd try to find out who these other people besides your girlfriend are if you can. Are there other people(strangers) around you when you hear these? Perhaps your hearing's just picking up on someone's conversation nearby. Sometimes I focus in on someone's voice without realizing it, and they're farther away so I don't notice it's coming from there. Freaks me out, but it's just my mind idling until it focuses on something.

Or, of course, it could be schizophrenia. >.<;;
