Would you like to read some information about the gender, location, and professionalism of the Lenormand fortune telling population? Are you a Lenormand card reader who is dying to know if your experiences as a Lenormand card reader are typical?
If this sounds like you, read on!
In August 2018, I conducted a survey of 947 divination practitioners and asked them about their likes, dislikes, and experiences. Lenormand made up a big part of the survey, and today I am going to reveal the results.
So, here they are, statistical facts about Lenormand card readers:
Where do they Live?
Lenormand readers are more likely to live in the US, Africa, India, and Islamic Asian countries than diviners who do not practice Lenormand. I think these results reflect the growing popularity of Lenormand.
Surprisingly, Lenormand readers are slightly less likely to live in the UK and other European countries when compared to other methods of divination (such as Tarot). I am still working out why this might be but I think it is quite a shocking find considering that it has been assumed by the Lenormand community that most readers are living in these parts of the world.
What is their Gender?
Lenormand readers are twice as likely to be male than readers who do not practice Lenormand. One of the reasons for this may be because many of the ‘flag wavers’ for Lenormand are male. A strong male presence in a niche divination community inspires other men to join the party - this is a theme which I have found to be true in not just the Lenormand community, but other divination niches such as the bone casting community.
Lenormand readers are also less likely to identify as being non-gendered, gender queer, or gender neatrual - the more experienced someone is at reading Lenormand, the less likely they are to be such.
What is their Experience?
A large percentage of Lenormand readers (21%) consider themselves to be advanced readers. This is another surprising statistic as it is assumed in the Lenormand community that practically all English speaking readers are beginners.
Lenormand readers are generally more experienced with divination than people who do not read Lenormand. Nearly one third of Lenormand readers have been reading for over twenty years.
It is not common for Lenormand to be a diviner’s first method of divination (more than half began their divination journey with Tarot.) The fact that Lenormand readers have often started with another method of divination means that most readers have a considerable amount of time between when they start reading and when they discover Lenormand - this is why Lenormand readers are more likely to have a decades of experience with divination.
What Type of Support Networks do Lenormand Readers Have?
Lenormand readers have stronger support networks. The friends and family members of Lenormand readers are more supportive than the rest of the general divination population's friends and family are.
Lenormand readers are statistically less likely to have close relatives who are diviners, but more likely to have ancestors who practice divination.
Are they Professional Diviners?
Lenormand readers are a lot more likely to be professional readers, and they are more likely to build sustainable businesses than diviners who do not read Lenormand. In fact, Lenormand readers are more than twice as likely to make a full-time living than readers who do not read Lenormand.
The Big Divination Survey found that 77% of all readers who make a full-time living from their readings are Lenormand readers, and 66% make at least a part-time living.
It is possible that Lenormand readers make more money because they have supportive family members and family. There is a very strong correlation between peer support and success as a psychic reader.
Another reason why Lenormand readers are more likely to run successful businesses is because they read for prediction; predictive divination is an extremely profitable skill set.
Do they want to Improve their Businesses?
Despite being more successful, Lenormand readers are less likely to want to learn more about business. One of the reasons for this, may be because they are already doing well so do not feel the need to learn more about these topics. They would rather spend their time learning more about how to improve their skills.
Is Lenormand Growing in Popularity?
Yes! Lenormand has grown (and will continue to grow) in popularity.
Only a few short years ago, there weren’t any Lenormand books or decks, and only a handful of Lenormand resources available in English. Now, Lenormand has boomed in popularity thanks to an increase in public interest and English resources.
Many readers are attracted to Lenormand’s ability to make specific and accurate predictions about love, career, and life. The Big Divination Survey revealed that 77% of diviners had a high interest in learning how to read Lenormand cards; that’s more than the amount of diviners who were interested in Astrology, Numerology, or any of the methods of divination which use crystals.
