Rrr no, testing question is one you don't know the answer to, but they can find out, and you can verify. One example is holding several card without looking at them, and ask them what color each card is. Then you check if the answers are correct (And I want to know more potential examples of this : p)
If the question is something you already know the answer to, then it can still be your subconscious moving the pendulum, not necessarily the being you contact with.
Oh that. My bad. I did that a couple of times before with my oracle cards that uses Archangels. I would put a 3 or so cards face down that I picked randomly from the deck and ask if they were a certain arch angel. If it said yes I would turn it over and check. The yes and no thing was to make sure the pendulum was going the right way when compared to what my board said. I'm actually not sure what other checks would be the most accurate. I am curious about that myself.
