psychometric analysis

psychometric analysis

A form of radiesthesia (a pseudotherapy), which is based on the belief that all living beings emit energy waves that are detectable by highly sensitive instruments, to which only the purveyor has access. In psychometric analysis, a pseudodiagnosis is established using a type of pendulum known as a biometer, which was developed in the early 20th century by a Dr Oscar Brunler. There is no peer-reviewed data to support the validity of psychometric analysis.
