The perfect bid
Mental projection and intuition helps him make the perfect bid
Rafael Flores used the alpha level to determine how much he should bid to purchase a repossessed
house. He had learned, through practice, that he could rely on the information he detected while at the
alpha level, and he trusted the impressions he got this time.
He bid $61,280. The high bid was about $500 more. Flores was not concerned. Even when the high bidder
paid the money for the binder, Flores was not concerned.
A week later, the high bidder defaulted, and Flores got the house. He had programmed to bid the right
amount, not the highest amount, and saved several hundred dollars as a result.
