False Diagnosis

I'm taking a basic, highschool level psychology course. I do this with my friends and they goof around. When they think that someone is acting strange, they ask me to diagnose them. I'm like, "I don't know what's going on either!"

Every time I answer their question "what is my course?" which is psych they always have a follow-up question which is "can you read my mind now?"
