What is this wizardry?

I'm curious how a particular flavour of magic trick is done. A participant who seems unlikely to be a stooge (eg a noted celebrity) is invited to draw or think of something, from an almost unlimited set of options, and the mentalist successfully picks what they've come up with. Here's an example. Here's Derren Brown doing even more impressive versions of the trick with David Frost and Iain M Banks.. The "it's just advanced psychology" explanation is misdirection, so what's the real answer?
