    Default of the soul

    Hi

    I checked the meaning of the word "psychic" on Wiki, and it said that it means "of the soul". I'm not quite sure I understand the phrase "of the soul". Does it mean, for example, MADE of the soul, or something like that?

    Your link is to an article on psychics (noun).
    It says that the word is derived from the Greek "of the soul, mental". This is the derivation, not the meaning, which could be (and is) a different thing.
    You seem to want the meaning of the adjective "psychic". A dictionary would give you a better definition of its meanings and uses.

    Note that the Greek derivation is misleading because these days most of us do not equate the mind with the soul.

    The Greek word psychicos means "of the soul, mental". The English meaning is explained in the cited article.

    *** Not A Teacher ***

    After I checked my dictionary I get its meaning.

    psychic means as follow,

    1 - having a special mental ability, for example so that you are able to know what will happen in the future or know what people are thinking.

    2 - (especially of an illness) of the mind rather than the bod.

    For Example:
    psychic powers
