A parapsychology test in which a chair number is chosen randomly from a seating plan for a future meeting at which seats are not reserved or allocated to specific individuals. The person who is being tested attempts to describe the appearance, characteristics, or other details of the individual who will later attend the meeting and occupy the chair. The Dutch sensitive Gerard Croiset appears to have had remarkable success with this type of clairvoyant precognition, which also had been earlier demonstrated by the French psychic Pascal Forthuny.
