You'd think an actual psychic would be able to engage in more professions than "Con artist."
I mean, if I had actual psychic powers and wanted to help people, some sort of law occupation would be good. Laywer, police, investigator, etc., all could really gain from someone who is able to read people's minds, clairvoyantly view crime scenes or hidden evidence, what have you.
If a psychic was ever are in financial straits but still wanted to be generous, just play some cards for quick cash, hit the slots, play the lottery then really give back to the community.
Instead we get con artists and thieves.
