No, they don’t. The ones who call themselves psychics are either deluded or lying.
They use cold reading techniques and inductive reasoning. Anyone can become a fake psychic in under one day if you study their methods.
Sylvia Browne is still avoiding the million dollar bet offered by the skeptic James Randi.

What can I clissify myself as, other than a reader?
I can walk up to a person, say Hello, receive a reply, and tell them exactly who they are, what they’ve done, how they think, etc etc etc. I’ve been called Clairvoyant, Telepathic, a Reader, but what is the appropriate term? I’ve had dreams predicting death that happened, and I just know a person. To make sure you all understand. I accidentally speak their thoughts as my own a lot. Answer questions they’ve yet to ask verbally. And I look away from them. Focus on their leg, or the floor next to them, or even just close my eyes, and i begin to know them. That’s how I force myself to read them. Other times I just know. I understand I could be like… Sensitive, but often the refers to spirit and spiritual work, as some would call ghosts… But normally, I don’t see them. Our house is haunted, but I don’t feel the strong connection. Just a general respect. Saying hi when they manifest, insuring that no one forces them away. Yea. I just need a definition or title as absolutely correct as we can get? I hate calling myself a reader and they are like, “What..?” I’d rather use a larger word so I sound more intelligent:P And I don’t really consider myself Psychic, but if you think that’s it, by all means tell me. In addition. I lost my father to drugs. So I don’t do that. Don’t smoke, drink, nothing of the sort. And i’m fifteen. My mother has a close friend who can do the same thing. I met her a few days ago and it was interesting to have someone who could do the same things as me. It’s not so crazy or rare, I just need a good title to go by? Thanks guys!

Medium, or Sensitive is prolly the more traditional name. Sensitive is more in relation to what a medium does w/o the use of ‘spiritual’ assistance. Now the technical term for what you are referring to would be called General Extrasensory Perception (GESP). GESP is the coupled talents of both telepathy and clairvoyance. Not all Sensitive mediums can use their abilities at will. More often than not people generally have only one or two psychic episodes in their life.
