There's also the anonymity factor. Oftentimes, people seek psychic advice for a difficult situation of which they may feel embarrassed to look someone in the eye and bare their soul. When you're on the phone or your computer with an online psychic, you are more inclined to open yourself up - an absolute must for any successful reading. Not to mention, when you're not meeting someone in person, they are less apt to pick up on your body language, what you're wearing, etc., to make an assessment that has nothing to do with psychic power.
