misuse of term in series description
25 October 2008 | by See all my reviews

Sookie Stackhouse is repeatedly described as 'Clairvoyant' though her only ability is to hear thought 'Telepathy'. Not sure if this ever comes up in the series proper but both here and at official site for the show the same mistake is made. Clairvoyance is linked to 'seeing' specifically what is not visible by normal means (generally distance or concealment).

Taken from Encarta: Clairvoyance Definition:

seeing what is not normally seen: the supposed ability to perceive things that are usually beyond the range of human senses

Mid-19th century. < French< clairvoyant "clear-sighted"
