You know they couldn't, don't you? It would be very simple to do, especially over the phone.
Isn't knowing so much about you just as unlikely as getting dice rolls correct? Besides, it's unlikely a spirit would be interested in playing your game.

Have you investigated every single psychic in the world?

I came up with same theory but it is a speculation.It is interesting to consider such things but they are not facts.

I knew you were going to say that.

Doesn't make me psychic.

I also know that you're not going to examine the evidence for the non-existence of God either because it would upset your existential applecart. That doesn't make me psychic either.

Psychics don't just make claims, they state facts. The question is where did they get their information from?

Google the term "cold reading".

Edit to Add: Once you've figured out how they're gleaning the information from you that they use to "state facts", it's fun to run an experiment on the next psychic you meet by feeding them false data, and listening to their "facts" starting to fit your new, false narrative. Just don't let on that you're playing with them.

We've been over this repeatedly. I'll put up the link just one more time (though I know you won't pay attention to it):

Learn Psychic Cold Reading

*edit to add*

I see RocketSurgeon beat me to it. Guess that makes him psychic.

They state / guess at generalities. There is no mechanism for them to get their information, and there exists no study that has demonstrated it's validity.
