* Sometimes such a character is called a "{{telepath}}", [[DontExplainTheJoke because]] cause-to-confabulation ratio tends to fall far beyond SherlockScan range of AssPull and into MindReading. Also, this turns an old joke into DoubleEntendre (at least):

Please note that most Cold Readers don't actually sound like [[ArmchairPsychology armchair psychologists]], but the ones who do are hilarious. Some actually do it on purpose.

A particularly annoying OnlinePersona which practices TheThemeParkVersion of ColdReading. The Internet Cold Reader will read a four-sentence long post, use it to deduce your life-story, psychology and political/religious views and then use that as a basis for their argument. Sometimes they'll accept correction on these points, sometimes they [[{{Jerkass}} won't.]] Common in fora and blogs.

* Moreover, why utilize the nonexistent term "unharmony" instead of the commonly accepted "disharmony"? Clearly, the discrepancy between your calls for discourse and your own egregious error in style and vocabulary signifies a terrible mental dichotomy between intellectualism and anti-intellectualism within your poor, addled mind. Your confusion, no doubt, stems from a tragically divided upbringing. Your mother and father likely found themselves at different axes of the anti-intellectualism/intellectualism debate. I'm sure it's a very fascinating story, but in the interim we would all appreciate it if you sought therapy for your psychic fissure rather than excising your wounds with wiki-vitriol.
