1997
Jonathan P. Niednagel was featured on the front page of the Los Angeles Times (Sunday edition) in a 3 page article titled,

“O.C. Man Proves Himself Master of the Mind Game.”
Excerpts from the article include: Niednagel’s gift – he amuses himself by dropping the jaws of strangers on airplanes by accurately describing how they would react to certain situations . . .And . . .
.
“If Jon is able to connect all this with empirical evidence, I’m convinced he’ll win the Nobel Prize,” said (Vic) Braden. “If someone can tell me what’s more important than this, I’d be very interested to hear it. Can you imagine sitting in the United Nations, knowing your adversary’s brain type and being able to change the way you listen, the way you negotiate, the way you make a request?” And . . .
.
. . . Just ask Jim Harrick, who credits Niednagel with helping the Bruins win the men’s national basketball championship in 1995. (Steve) Lavin, then an assistant to Harrick, asked Niednagel to observe a Bruin practice session and offer his opinions . . . Three hours later, Harrick had decided Niednagel must be a psychic.
