I am trying to recall what I read but there are also a bunch of protocols with the targets. Or at least the original people had very strict procedures for the actual target. Usually passed to someone the tasker in a sealed envelope.
here is an article from Paul H Smith I recently read his book Reading the enemies mind which was great although he did not get into deep mind probes.
How to Evaluate a Potential Remote Viewing Tasker
In my article, “Beware the Unknown Tasker,” I cautioned you against accepting remote viewing taskings from just any random person. As I finished writing that article, it occurred to me that it would be helpful to offer some guidelines to help you figure out whether a potential tasker might be someone you could feel comfortable working with. So here is a list of suggestions (and if you have any ideas to share, it would be great if you would offer them as comments at the end of the main article). Remember, this only applies to cases where someone is asking you to remote view for them.1
1. Check to see if the person has a remote viewing reputation, and if so what kind. (In other words, do they have a history of giving bizarre, sensational or anomalous targets? Or do they instead provide good, well-sources targets with solid feedback that is provided to you after you’re done with your remote viewing attempt?)
2. Ask the person directly about his or her remote viewing background and experience. You can ask questions such as:
What remote viewing training have you had?
What books about remote viewing have you read?
What are some examples of tasking you have provided in the past for other viewers?
Approximately how many remote viewing tasking have you provided to others so far?
2. Ask your prospective tasker for references to others he or she has worked with whom you can talk to.
4. Ask if he or she would be willing to first show the proposed tasking to another experienced tasker, so you can stay blind to the target while making sure the tasking is appropriate and well-formed.
There are also cases where you may be the one asking someone else to be your tasker. That is an entirely different situation, which I will provide guidance about in a future article.
