He has mastered the art of talking to people into his own personal art.
Without prior knowledge of a person, a practiced cold reader can still quickly obtain a great deal of information about the subject by analyzing the person's body language, age, clothing or fashion, hairstyle, gender, sexual orientation, religion, race or ethnicity, level of education, manner of speech, place of origin, etc. Cold readers commonly employ high probability guesses about the subject, quickly picking up on signals from their subjects as to whether their guesses are in the right direction or not, and then emphasizing and reinforcing any chance connections the subjects acknowledge while quickly moving on from missed guesses.
Extrasensory perception or ESP.
Involves reception of information not gained through the recognized physical senses but sensed the mind. The term was adopted by Duke University psychologist J. B. Rhine to denote psychic abilities such as telepathy, clairaudience, and clairvoyance, and their trans-temporal operation as precognition or retrocognition. ESP is also sometimes referred to as a sixth sense. The term implies acquisition of information by means external to the basic limiting assumptions of science, such as that organisms can only receive information from the past to the present.

Personality: Jackson is at the bottom of everything a self-loathing person. He hates himself and therefore hates anything and anyone who reminds him of the things about him that he dislikes. He represses so much and has a hard time accepting himself. He never shows a soft side to others, he cares about the people in his life but, hell will freeze over before he lets people see it. He carries on with a harsh demeanor and sometimes the things he will say may hurt others. He never apologizes and doesn’t like to back down or retreat.

He just doesn’t care and will do and say very hurtful things without a second thought about them. ✦ Controlling: Jackson needs to feel in control at all times. ✦ Jealous: Jackson is extremely insecure about his relationships and will keep tabs on anyone involved with him or even go as far as to spy on them or go through their things. ✦ Greedy: This doesn’t need an explanation, does it? He is a greedy bastard. He never gives money to other people, the exception to this being his kids and possibly Tyson. Ugh, the wife always complains about this. ✦ Detached: Sometimes, he is a bit cold and disconnected from other people. At times like this he focuses on his own needs before that of others. His kids are the exception to this behavior. He can't ever be detached from them.
Parents: Janet Grant & Brandon Grant Siblings:Tyson GrantSawyer Grant Other Family: Tiffany Grant (wife), Chris and Christina Grant Important Others:Finn Williams (childhood’s friend) History:
He was born in a Monday. Jackson is the middle child he was born after Tyson and before Sawyer. He would be always looking for parental attention or any attention he could attain at all. This led him to be a kind of ill behaved kid. He also disliked responsibilities so he ducked them all whenever he could get away with it. At some point in his childhood his older brother, Tyson showed Sawyer and Jackson in the backyard that he had abilities. Jackson was amazed and true to be told a little jealous too.
Jackson made good use of his good looks whenever he could. Even, when he was only a twelve years old kid, he was shallow like that. Sadly, this attracted the attention of an older man down the block. He would make inappropriate remarks whenever Jackson was riding in his bike. It was disgusting. Jackson didn’t have the heart to confront the man or even tell anyone about it. For some unknown reason he began to fear the guy. Sometimes he felt paranoid, he was afraid of running into him and when his family was invited to a barbecue in his house he felt like that blonde chick in the horror movies.
Tyson revealed his powers to their parents. That quickly, went awry. They were shitless scared of Tyson and told him to go and never comeback. They must of have said something to Jackson too about avoiding his brother. However, Jackson had known about Tyson for a long time now and he just didn’t care. He knew his brother would never harm the family. Jackson had to admit to himself that his parent’s attitude toward his brother annoyed him, but he kept that for himself.
Sometime later, Tyson went missing. Jackson and his younger brother, Sawyer, would both ask around, show people Tyson’s picture, passed on flyers and would place “Have you seen” announcements in any wall they could find. When Tyson finally surfaced he was different. Something about him had changed but, Jackson couldn’t place his finger on what exactly was different. Maybe it was because of his ordeal. Tyson told them he managed to escape from captivity and that he was starting over in NY.
When Jackson was in school suddenly one day he found himself looking at one of his classmates’ ass. Once he realized what he was doing Jackson had to stop and he felt horrified. How could that be? That—that was a guy. Liking guys is disgusting. Jackson felt dirty. He had to do something. He had to fix himself. He decided he could erase these thoughts by focusing on women. He started purchasing and, keeping playboy magazines all over his bedroom (hidden from his parents, of course). He started to go out with girls and often attended the popular crowd parties.
That’s how he got laid for the first time with a cute blonde cheerleader. Luck would have it she became pregnant. They did just once! Jackson however unlike other men felt happy. His parents were going to give him a lecture longer than the entire Bible but, he didn’t care. He shared the good news with his mayor confidents, his brothers. They both congratulated him. And when he told his parents well, as predicted they lost their shit. Nevertheless, they told him they would support him.
This way, on a cold morning his girlfriend gave birth to two beautiful twins. Jackson was now a daddy. He started to become worried about supporting his family after all, these kids relied on him. That’s the first time he regretted the fact that he didn’t wait longer to have sex with her. The idea of his children having a hard time in life because of him was unbearable. Jackson made his mind to become a man with the means to secure his family’s economic security.
When Jackson, when he knew about his younger brother preferences he felt betrayed. How could he be proud of being like that? It was sick. It was unnatural and he would not have it. Jackson marched into his parent’s room with the clear intent of threatening them to leave the house if they sided with the homo. Nonetheless, they were as repulsed as Jackson if not more. They kicked Sawyer out of the house. Jackson felt relieved somewhere in the back of his head he remembered that man grabbing his ass at the barbecue when no one was looking and in his mind he now had the face of an aged Sawyer.
As soon as he was out of the school he started working in a call center. Not long after that he and his girlfriend got married. He was good enough that when he decided to look for something else he landed a decently paid job in a retail store. One of his coworkers introduced Jackson into the world of poker and gambling. He quickly became entranced. Since his main concern, the well being of his family comes first; he keeps a pot of cash stashed aside with this purpose. He has never taken from the family account and will never do so. His rule of gold is never gamble what you don’t have.
Jackson watched the picture of his kids one more time. They had gotten so big but, they would always be his little babies. He tucked the picture again in his wallet and moved his arm he looked at the clock in his wrist again. He had come to New York to visit Tyson, his older brother. He arrived at a ridiculously early hour. Tyson wouldn’t arrive to the restaurant until the noon it was 11:00am. He was very eager to see his brother they had stayed in touch since Tyson was shunned but, since he had moved to NY they barely saw each other. Talking to him through the phone just wasn’t the same. Tyson sometimes would nag him about accepting Sawyer the way he was.
Jackson loved his big brother, but there was just simply no way he could… come around that. Not even if it was Tyson asking him. He did however found himself occasionally browsing through his brother’s youtube account and watching a video or two. It was weird. The waiter came and Jackson just ordered a cup of coffee. He took out his cell phone and looked at the little icon with the address book Tyson had given him the number of Sawyer and for some reason he never came around to deleting it from his cellphone. He stared at the screen for 5 minutes before he left it alone on the table.
His coffee arrived he blew it carefully before taking a drink. Ah, the place had affordable prices and had a nice view of central park. Jackson leg moved impatiently under the table. He should have gone sight seeing or something to kill the hour but, he felt that somewhat he didn’t want to lose track of the time. He wanted to make sure that in his short weekend visit he had the chance to see his brother but, arriving this early he had sabotaged himself he was too eager to see him and now the wait was killing him. The caffeine he was just having probably didn’t help much.
He stared at the park a couple of two men holding hands walked by. They were gazing sweetly into each others eyes. He instantly looked away feeling something sink in the pit of his stomach. He stared again at the phone the urge of suddenly delete Sawyer’s number overwhelmed him. He grabbed the phone moving his finger through the tactile screen. There it was the offensive number, Jackson frowned Tyson had even added a photo of Sawyer.
Jackson did not own pictures of his brother and whenever he went to his parents’ house he knew they had discarded all the pictures of Tyson and Sawyer. Now there were a few pictures of him. He had saved some of the pictures of Tyson with Sawyer’s help back then when they were on good terms.
Jackson left the phone fall to the table and gave up, for some reason he was willing to let the number stay there. Even if he did not have an ounce of will to ever call Sawyer or see him.
