Electric people and magnetic people are those people who have the ability (not always wanted) to attract or repel objects around them, to have objects stick to them, or to interfere with electrical equipment and compasses, by some unseen force. The terms have come about due to the similarity of effects produced by static electricity and magnetic fields. Such people have been studied since 1846, when Angélique Cottin was studied by France's Academy of Sciences.
